Propagating Properly on "Your Southern Garden" May 1

Gardeners can learn to reproduce prized plants through propagation, identify irises and master mulch on "Your Southern Garden with Walter Reeves" May 1 at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Georgia Public Broadcasting.
University of Georgia Cooperative Extension horticulturist Paul Thomas, a propagation pro, will demonstrate a technique every gardener can use to create new plants from their favorite ones.
Irises propagate themselves easily, but horticulturist Hank Bruno will bring Reeves a bucketful of irises that have different characteristics in the landscape.
And, University of Florida Extension horticulturist Erin Alvarez will lead viewers through all the options for choosing landscape mulches.
"Your Southern Garden," produced by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and University of Florida IFAS Extension, is a one-of-a-kind program specifically for the Southeast. The program is made possible by underwriter support from Scotts Miracle-Gro and sponsorship from McCorkle Nurseries.
