How do I begin a new veg/heb garden in an already estabished gardening bed?

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

I just bought a house with great gardening beds. The only issue is I’m new to gardening and would like to get rid all the plants currently growing there to add new ones. I’d like to pot the rosemary instead of having it on the bed because it seems so invasive. The tomato plants seem to be done for the season. Do I pull them? There are also strawberries, thyme, and others I have no idea what they are.

          I messed up – do I need to move my vegetable garden?

          Friday, April 29th, 2011

          I am in Memphis, Zone 7. I planted a "Square Foot Garden" (raised bed garden) full of vegetables at my new home. Bell peppers, peas, beans, tomatoes, watermelon, squash, herbs, etc. I thought the spot I chose was full sun. Not sure how I messed this up… It appears my beds are getting only about 3 hours of sun a day, from noon to 3:00. Do I need to move the beds? It won’t be easy, but it is possible before the plants get too big. To think I dug up all that grass underneath them. Sigh. Thank you!

            Designing an indoor garden?

            Thursday, April 28th, 2011

            I am designing an indoor garden. It will be located in a glass sunroom/conservatory. Unfortunately, most of the books about indoor gardening are about growing plants in pots. I want to create an ACTUAL indoor garden — lavender, jasmine, ferns, irises — planted in soil beds.

            What I want to know is:
            1. Whether there are any books or websites on the subject.
            2. Whether the plants I’ve mentioned would grow in good indoor conditions, and any other plant suggestions (preferably plants with flowers!)

                What is a safe alternative to using pressure treated lumber for vegetable garden beds?

                Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

                I’m making raised beds for my vegetable garden and for obvious reasons can’t use pressure treated lumber. I was thinking of using 1x10s, but cedar or redwood are not in my price range. does anyone know of anything I could do to treat pine that won’t leach into the soil and kill me? also, I have a ton of the original siding from my house (built in 1948) up in my attic. it’s about 1" thick and 8" wide and I have it in lengths of 8-10′ long. It’s been painted on one side, and I’m not sure what kind of wood it is. does anyone know if old siding is historically treated w/ anything nasty to make it fire resistant or age better? and would the paint pose a potential problem? the wood is in good shape, but I’m not sure how safe it would be to use. any thoughts?

                Any recommendations on raised beds for gardening?

                Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

                I’d like to install a raised bed for vegetable gardening this year. I think this will allow me more control over the soil quality. What’s the cheapest and easiest way to go about it? Should I buy one of the ready-made beds available online?
                In case I wasn’t clear, the soil is not my concern, it’s the actual bed itself. Should I try to build one, or buy one that snaps together?
