NEW Dinner with Gardening Experts; Lessons on How to Work Less, Spend Less with More Success

Launch your Spring gardening endeavors with advice from experts at the 12th annual Callaway Gardening School. Join us for a fantastic gardening experience with one of Georgia’s own gardening gurus, Walter Reeves.

Reeves, an Atlanta radio host and author, will talk about the latest research on how to correctly plant trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials. This knowledge will save gardeners money and time as well as produce plants that prosper. His practical approach on the basics of gardening makes him a popular and much sought-after lecturer. Reeves will have his books, including Georgia Gardeners’ Q&A 501 Answers to Frequently Asked Questions and Guide to Georgia Vegetable Gardening, available for purchase and signing.

Reeves will be joined by current and former horticulturists from Callaway Gardens to create an in–depth question and answer panel including David Chambers, manager of Mr. Cason’s Vegetable Garden at Callaway Gardens; Brian Kanotz, manager of greenhouse production; Hank Bruno, director of horticulture at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden of Belmont, NC; and, Helen Phillips, manager of Garden Solutions Garden Center of LaGrange, GA. Bring your gardening questions and challenges to see if you can get your perplexing gardening issues solved as well as receive practical, down-to-earth advice and insight into your gardening activities.
