Norcross Garden Club's Evening With Walter Reeves

The Georgia gardener paid a visit to the city last Thursday to make a presentation.

By Julie Fitzgerald

We had a very enthusiastic turnout for garden expert, writer, radio and tv host Walter Reeves' talk with more than 180 in attendance.

Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson introduced Walter to the eager crowd. In his usual, highly entertaining fashion Walter told us how to prepare our lawns and gardens for the fall and winter to ensure a healthy, happy landscape next spring.

The raffle for gardening-themed items was well received. The selections ranged from a large Oakleaf hydrangea to gardening tools, flower paintings and photographs, ceramic bird baths, gift certificates for landscaping services and an artfully decorated shovel! Walter also took a nice tour of the Norcross Garden Club's house and gardens during the pre-event open house.
