Sunday, January 8th, 2012

the north side of my house has a small garden area that used to have just hedge bushes…i dug them up and would like to have a cactus garden with indigenous texas plants…the main problem with this area is that it does not receive direct sunlight most of the year…will cactus grow there? is there something else attractive that will? do you have a link to a great beginner gardening website? thank you!

    Indoor garden?

    Sunday, September 11th, 2011

    I live in an apartment without a patio but I have two E/W facing windows, so I pretty much always have some sunlight.
    Are there any relatively small plants(herbs, maybe?) that can be grown indoors, in a small planter, and without a whole lot of light?

    Also, having a planter that hangs out of a window isn’t an option because there is a brick "lip" right outside both windows.

      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!

          What is a good flower for an indoor garden?

          Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

          We were recently forced to roof over the open air atrium in the center of our house, due to constant wood rotting and poorly designed drainage. Now we are wishing we had put in a skylight instead because the flower garden we had out there no longer has ANY access to sunlight. Does anyone happen to know of some good plants/flowers that we could do in an entirely artificailly lit setting?

          Thanks in advance for all your aid.

            What kind of lighting should I use for an indoor herb garden?

            Saturday, May 28th, 2011

            This summer I’m planning to grow herbs for the first time. I’m starting with just a few simple cooking herbs, and I want to grow them in my room but I’m concerned about lighting. They’ll be next to the window so they’ll get plenty of fresh air, but my room isn’t facing in the right direction for a lot of sunlight to filter in. Would it be a good idea to get a timed grow light for them? And if so, what type of light should I get, and what times during the day should it be on?

              Solar Powered Indoor Plant Lamp?

              Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

              I am planning on trying to make a circuit that will provide light to my indoor vegetable garden. I want it to be able to charge via sunlight during the day then used at night. I want it to power CFL’s for the light source. Actually which light bulbs/whatever would be best for an indoor garden?

              Thanks in advance! :]
              Thanks to those who are answering my gardening help, but I need help with making a electronic circuit, similar to a joule thief, to power a CFL bulb but charging during the day via solar energy.

                    What should I plant in my vegetable garden?

                    Saturday, January 8th, 2011

                    I have prepared a small garden for vegetables. I’m not sure what to plant this time of year. It is only two feet wide and the length of it is bordered by a block fence( south) so it is always shaded. Although I live in sunny Arizona I will need to plant vegetables that don’t require much sunlight. Any suggestions?
                    Thanks Kristian….very informative!
