            Choosing Fall Flowers for Container Gardening and Window Boxes

            Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

            You can replace and revive summer planting containers with fresh fall-flowering plants. Lowe’s shows you 5 colorful options for autumn containers and window boxes. 1. Pansies – Pansies have large single petals and come in blue, purple, maroon, white and yellow, as well as a mix of bicolors. These hardy flowers look great edging a container or window box because of their short stature and large cheery flowers. 2. Kale – Ornamental kale offers big, colorful, frilly leaves in white, purple, pink and green-blue. You need just a few plants to fill up a container or window box. Kales like the cool temperatures of autumn, and they’ll stand up to frost, too. 3. Asters – Dwarf varieties of asters grow 6 to 8 inches tall and are covered with fringed flowers in purple, blue, or pink with bright yellow centers. 4. Chrysanthemums – Chrysanthemums, or mums for short, are a fall favorite and a standout for containers and window boxes because they come in many different colors, like red, lavender, white, yellow, gold, russet and chartreuse. Mums come in double and single flowers, too. 5. Gourds and pumpkins – There’s no planting involved—just stack them into a container or mix them with plants. You can grow your own gourds and mini pumpkins, of course!

                    Indoor garden help/Pacific Northwest in January?

                    Saturday, July 30th, 2011

                    I would like to start an indoor container garden in my apartment and I need some assistance. I live in Oregon and we don’t get much sun light in winter months. I would put the plants in front of the window obviously, and my apartment is about 62f degrees.

                    Would vegetables grow under these conditions?

                    Listed below are the types of veggies I want to grow from seeds. Any help with the size of container, or anything at all would be a great help. Ive never gardened anything before, so consider you are talking to an idiot.

                    cherry tomatoes
                    leaf lettuce
                    radishes
                    beans
                    oregano

                    Any other easy to grow vegetable options or any other tips at all would be awesome. Thank you.
