Can anybody tell me more about vertical glass indoor gardens?

Friday, August 27th, 2010

I saw one in South America situated in a house. It was a vertical rectangle constructed of glass, 10 metres high, at least 3 metres wide, starting on the ground floor and constructed so it opened onto the roof, thus allowing rainwater to come down.

There was bamboo and other tropical plants within, with sliding doors allowing access from within the house.

I have heard that these were popular in the 1960’s or 1970s but have no other information regarding this.

Can anybody please shed some more light on this please.

How do I start a vegetable garden?

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

I’ve been wanting to start a vegetable garden for a while now, and I’ve decided to finally do it this year, due to the economy. My question is, where do I start? I’ve been researching it, and it seems really complicated. The extent of my experience of working in a garden is putting out grass seed. Any tips or links would be appreciated.

EDIT: I live near Dallas, Texas.

Indoor garden lights – Hortilux bulb problem?

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

I have a 600 W Hortilux bulb, new. When I turn on the ballast, the bulb flickers a lot like it is going to turn on, but never does. Is this a problem with the bulb, the socket, the ballast or what? Thanks!

Can starting a vegetable garden attract vermin?

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

My sister and I are planning on planting a small vegetable garden in our yard, so far we know what to do to get rid of grass and such. But we’re worried about attracting vermin, we have a lot of mice and possum in the the summer as well as birds. The city just shut down it’s program for keeping the city free of rats and mice… and we just got rid of an infestation of mice in our house. Would this be inviting the vermin into our yard and possibly our house?
