Southern Expert - Walter Reeves

"I use Milorganite regularly on my azaleas, camellias and blueberries. I know it will release nutrients slowly, just at the right time for my plants' growth!"

Garden expert, writer, radio and television host Walter Reeves grew up on a small Georgia farm in Fayette County, where his family raised chickens and cows. Walter and his four younger siblings were all expected to tend a large garden for family sustenance. After eighteen years of farm life, he swore that if delivered from tending animals and plants, he would never garden again. Yet, for a guy who longed to see the family farm recede in the rearview mirror as he headed to college, Walter admits that the unrelenting lure of gardening was stronger than he ever anticipated! Oddly enough, Walter is now the most respected garden guru in the Southeast and the author or co-author of nine books on gardening. For 18 years, Reeves has hosted “The Lawn and Garden Show with Walter Reeves” Saturday mornings on Atlanta’s WSB radio. He also writes a weekly column for the Thursday Atlanta Journal-Constitution and distributes a bi-weekly e-mail garden newsletter.  Walter hosts “Your Southern Garden” on Georgia Public Television from April to October each year.
