Gardening in Georgia

Planting Asparagus

Asparagus is one of the few perennial vegetables. The spears come back
year after year with little effort on your part. Walter visits with two
teenage gardeners as they plant an asparagus bed behind their school.

Corn Maze

Do you get lost in your work? Mike Pinzl does...and he does it on
purpose! Mike is the proprietor of Uncle Shuck’s Corn Maze in
Dawsonville and he delights in showing how he creates an artistic puzzle
in his big corn field. Good thing for Walter there’s a “Rescue Tower” in
the center of the maze!


Planting a Lawn: Slit Seeder

When planting a lawn from seed, machinery can make the job a lot easier.
A slit seeder propells sharp blades shallowly through the soil surface,
making a great place for seeds to germinate. Walter shows the parts of a
slit seeder and guides it across a lawn.


Goldenrod

Incorrectly blamed for fall allergies, goldenrod makes a bright yellow
blanket in a perennial garden. Walter shows off his favorite goldenrod:
‘Fireworks’.
