What's the best plant for someone bad at gardening?

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

I’m not exaggerating – I’ve killed an aloe plant, rosemary (twice), even a bamboo that you only have to water once a month! Right now I have a cactus as a gift and I’ve kept it alive for almost 6 months and would like to expand. I’m looking for an indoor plant and get some sun (I’m on the west side of my building). Sometimes I go away for a weekend and don’t really have anyone to water plants for me. Ideas?

    Indoor garden advice?

    Thursday, August 11th, 2011

    I want to grow an indoor garden with my 3 year old daughter. What are some easy plants to grow, veggies, herbs or whatever.. I’d like to grow tomatoes, but I’ve been reading up on it and it looks like quite the process. What’s best for someone starting out (and someone without a green thumb!) I’ve heard of using teabags in the soil to help plants grow. Should I try this? Any other advice?

    I’d like to grow everything from seeds, and I’d like to try at least 3 different plants (or more!)

    Also, I’m in Ontario, Canada, so there’s lots of sun in the summer, but not so much in the winter, spring and fall.. plus it gets pretty cold by the window I plan on using for sunlight.

    Thanks for reading!! 🙂
    Tony, I meant to give you a thumbs up, not a thumbs down! My finger slipped… 🙂 It’s a great answer!

        I want to plant an indoor window sill herb garden, any advice?? I'm a beginner….?

        Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

        I have very little experience gardening but I am tired of crappy supermarket herbs so I want to grow my own. I want to be able to have fresh herbs year round so I would like to grow inside. My kitchen window gets full sun almost all day. I need advice on where to start and what type of herbs grow best/easiest indoors.

          I have little flies around my indoor organic garden soil that is expensive, in a big pot, how can I kill them?

          Sunday, April 24th, 2011

          What if, since I live in Phoenix I could put it outside in the sun lets say when its a 112 degrees outside will that kill them or will they come back when the soil gets wet again when I start to grow indoor veggies.

              I would like to plant an indoor vegetable garden?

              Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

              I have lupus and cant be out in the sun much. Any ideas? I am prepared to dedicate a large room in my house, but need some feasable ideas. I found a countertop garden, but it would not be big enough to grow what I want. What would be the easiest to grow indoors?

              Indoor gardening – what should I grow?

              Friday, July 2nd, 2010

              I live in Texas in zone 8a I think. I don’t have much of a yard or anything, but I really want to garden, so I thought I might try my hand at indoor container gardening. The windows where I want to put my plants get lots of sun in the morning and earlier part of the afternoon, but it’s pretty shady after that. Aside from a horticulture class in high school, I haven’t had much experience with gardening, so I might need something that’s not so easy to screw up.

              I really just want to grow some stuff me and my bunnies can eat. 😀
              I forgot to mention, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be indoors. I just want it to be edible and in containers.

              Are Sundials Any Good In The Rain?

              Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

              Sundials are ancient artifacts, architectural wonders, that offer great meaning and classic beauty to those who treasure them.  A sundial is a beautiful way to add a touch of history to your garden.  It is the most popular and ancient device of science that is still in existence.  Over time, more elaborately engineered and accurate time-telling devices were conceived, such as equatorial sundials.  They make very popular gifts, especially for weddings and anniversaries, as the concepts of “time” and “everlasting love” are so closely related.

              These gardening gifts are traditionally found in gardens but can add an interesting detail to interior and exterior environments.  A sundial is a fantastic thing to have in your garden, making incredibly beautiful focal points just like any urn or garden sculpture.  They can be personalized with inscriptions and date lines to make the perfect birthday gift for the person who has everything.  A sundial is not nearly as accurate at telling the time as a clock or watch, but it can give a good estimate of the current time. They come in many sizes, types and finishes.

              Brass sundials are more eye-catching and are more likely to be a focal piece in your outdoor decor.  Gnomons (shadow-casters) are usually made of brass, bronze or stainless steel.  You may want to purchase a brass pedestal or perhaps make a more personalized sun dial pedestal from stones or rocks from around your place.  The sundials most commonly found in churchyards are those of the common horizontal class, normally made of brass or bronze, although, sadly, many of these have been stolen in recent years or have been badly damaged.

              Today, as history/art/science projects, backyard decor, or special gifts sundials are the perfect choice.  They make a statement in any garden, castle or cottage, and are excellent gardening gifts for that special occasion.  Sundials are historical jewels for your garden, providing a natural, time-honored way of which to gauge time.  Rain or shine, these gardening gifts are cool. 😉
