When you work in your garden, a host of other creatures are working alongside you. On the next "Gardening in Georgia" Aug. 10, Dr. Kris Braman shows host Walter Reeves several of the most important beneficial insects that help control garden pests.
Reeves also shows how to build a trap for whiteflies using a yellow cup and sticky motor oil.
Have you ever seen old-time gardeners put rocks in the bottom of their houseplant pots? Reeves explains why this isn't a good idea.
And finally, Glen Austin of The Antique Rose Emporium describes fragrant musk roses and tells how to grow them.
