Are you as fed up as I with Chinese made gardening tools and machines!!!?

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

I just bought and used the "Task Force" edge trimmer sold at Lowes. It is a completly useless tool! Don’t even think about buying it! Once again another useless product that I have invested my time and money on made in China. I am taking it back today! Some months ago I purchased a automatic sprayer from ‘Cepia’. In theory this device would have saved me hours of time. But because it is so poorly made I wound up throwing it in the trash after much frustration.
I myself am now on a crusade to boycott as many Chinese made products as possible…even if it means going without!
In light of all the hazardous recalls and poor quality, what do you think our government should do, and what do you think we as American citezens should do to rid ourselves of being pretty much conned into buying these products sold by what are supposed to be reputible companies like Lowes and Home Depot?

    Is garden soil okay for indoor, potted plants (herbs)?

    Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

    The genius at the Home Depot, when I asked about 2 different kinds of soil neglected to tell me one was for potting and the other for gardening, which maybe I should have known, but I am a new plant-grower : ) When I asked if one was better than the other, he said they would both work.

      Help with Christmas gifts for a few people? Sorry I know this is asked often!?

      Saturday, January 8th, 2011

      Okay so I have a few gifts to buy and on some I have a few leads, but some I’m lost.

      1. Mom- Garden clippers and an apron. At least, thats what she wants. Garden clippers, would those be at Home Depot? And where do they sell aprons? (She specified that she wants a cute one not a plain one.)
      2. Dad- iPad guy. I know I’m going to get him something for his iPad but there are so many accessories out lately. I checked Brookstone’s website and they have like all these different stands, cases, keyboard, speakers, chargers, everything! So need a little direction there.
      3. Brother- My mom already got him TONS of clothes. I usually get him a shirt or a hoodie but my mom got him like six shirts and three sweaters already so I need something else. He likes Warhammer and trivia. He’s 18. (Gift does not have to relate to Warhammar or trivia just ideas)
      4. Friends- They chose a spending limit which I find way too low to find something good but they insisted. So good gift for teen girls? Not something they’ll end up throwing away. Not cheap jewelry, please.
      5. Boyfriend- Thinking iPod Touch, but it’s really expensive so I’m open to other ideas. And think more along the lines of one big gift, not a bunch of clothes or a few video games. (Already has a TV cell and laptop)

      PS. No giftcard suggestions please! Thanks for reading all this, Merry Christmas

      How do I build a raised bed for my vegetable garden?

      Thursday, October 14th, 2010

      I have no experience building things, but think it would be pretty easy to make a 4ft x 12ft raised bed for my vegetable garden. I want it about 18" deep. Any blueprints or ideas out there? I don’t have a drill and can have Home Depot cut the wood to size for me. Thanks!!

      Pink Flamingo Yard Decor?

      Monday, October 4th, 2010

      Do home and garden stores like Home Depot and Lowes have Pink Flamingos? What about places like Hobby Lobby?

      This is for a fundraiser – Pink Flamingo Flocking.
      I am trying to raise money for an Earthwatch Expedition (http://www.earthwatch.org)
