If you've never thought about planting a potager, you may need to watch "Gardening in Georgia" June 22 or 24 on Georgia Public Television.
A potager is an area in which you plant both edible and ornamental plants. Host Walter Reeves visits with guest Tara Dillard, who shows her selections for an attractive summer potager.
Reeves also takes a look at shot-hole disease on English laurels. The name perfectly describes the disease. It looks as if someone has blasted your laurels! Reeves shows how to identify and control this problem.
Finally, Reeves tackles an old math problem. Is pi square? Or is pi round? Walter shows how to use simple math to calculate how much water to apply to a big tree during a drought.
