Gardening guru Walter Reeves to take part in BYA Online Meeting


From Special Reports

Ever wonder about any faux pas that garden expert, writer, radio and television host Walter Reeves has made over the years? After growing up on a small Georgia farm, where his family raised chickens and cows, Reeves swore his farming days were over—until he went to college.

Now, he shares his gardening mistakes in “Walter’s Faux Pas” in an online meeting of the Backyard Association on Tuesday, Feb. 9. The ZOOM link is

The BYA is an educational program sponsored by Coweta County’s Master Gardener Extension Volunteers.

Today Walter Reeves is the one of the most respected garden gurus in the Southeast and the author or co-author of nine books on gardening. For 26 years, Reeves 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. He hosted “Your Southern Garden” on Georgia Public Television for 10 years.

Reeves is a strong supporter of the 4-H and Cooperative Extension organization in Georgia. He was a 4-H camp counselor, a 4-H adult leader and is a Master 4-H’er. He claims that the skill to do a five-minute 4-H talk that he learned in fifth grade is the basis of his entire career.

The Backyard Association is an educational program sponsored by the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs). The presentations are free to the public and are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.
