GA Master Gardener Program

Gardening in Georgia

There are thousands of trained Master Gardeners serving their communities across Georgia. They are required to attend a several-week course and then to give back many hours of volunteer time before being named Master Gardeners. Marco Fonseca tells how anyone can apply to be in this volunteer educational program.

Pruning Back Chrysanthemums

Those huge pots of mums you see in fall didn't just grow that way; they had to be pruned in summer. Walter demonstrates how to give chrysanthemums and other plants a summer haircut.

Watering Strawberry Pots

If you've ever planted a strawberry pot, you know how hard it is to get water to penetrate all the way to the bottom. Walter shows how to make a watering tube that conducts water to the lower soil layers while watering the top plants as well.

Creekwater for Gardening

If you garden near a lake or stream, you've probably been tempted to pump the free water onto your lawn or landscape. Dick Tirzia has been doing it for years, and he gives Walter his tips on how to design the system correctly.
