garden chat roomsPosted by charlie on Monday, June 25, 2001 7:48 AM ADT
wondering if any one uses a garden chat room that actually talks of gardening , and not useless yack ,if so please pass along
re: garden chat roomsPosted by darcey on Tuesday, June 26, 2001 1:29 PM ADT
I hope so Charlie this is the first time to this site but I have a garden and would like to ask some questions and hopefully get knowledgable advice. One is I dug up some new potatoes and they were white but one of the uneaten potatoes turned green a few days later. I understand that new ones don't keep well but is this supposed to happen?
re: garden chat roomsPosted by sue on Thursday, July 5, 2001 2:04 PM ADT
Actually, your e-mail was the only one that didn't talk about gardening and was full of "useless yack". Maybe try calling a gardening guild in your area to see if they know of any "good" chat rooms.
re: garden chat roomsPosted by Joannie on Friday, July 20, 2001 4:04 PM ADT
Charlie: I have found www.canadiangardening.com. Click on GardenTalk. You'll see message board where questions are listed and responses given. Forget Patio Forum - it's more about the useless chitchat you're NOT looking for. Keep in mind that there's a lot of humour on this forum but there are a number of knowledgeable gardeners with sound advice. Ignore the others. Good luck and good gardening. Joannie

winterizing petuniasPosted by Yvonne on Wednesday, November 5, 2008 12:30 PM AST
I know that I have read somewhere in my hundreds of gardening magazine collection that it is possible to winterize petunias just like a geranium - pulling them up and putting them in a paper bag and store in cool and dark space until spring. Has anyone tried this?
re: garden chat roomsPosted by The Hollyberry Lady on Wednesday, November 12, 2008 12:02 AM AST
Hey Gardeners! Well, I just wanted to share that for the past 5 Winters in a row, while it is snowing outside, I grow petunias and geraniums, as well as other flowers, in my south facing windows, and they bloom all Winter long!!! Old man Winter doesn't stop me, one little bit!!! I even grow Dwarf sunflowers, indoors, when it's -20 outside!!! The Hollyberry Lady.

re: garden chat rooms : aphids attacking cabbage plantsPosted by YourHomeForum on Saturday, December 27, 2008 5:08 PM AST
Other than using diazinon or malathion, you can try using soap or boil up one pound of rhubarb leaves in a few pints of water for about 20 minutes, allow to cool, and then strain the liquid into a spray bottle add some dish detergent and spray on leaves to kill aphids.

Hello sHell, The best way to fight aphids is to grow chives in the same pot or next to the plant in the garden. Good Luck!!
re: garden chat roomsPosted by Cyd Bennett on Saturday, March 7, 2009 1:24 PM AST
Hi Nelson, the best time to plant summer bulbs is the end of Apr. or Beginning of May, after danger of hard frost. My question is when should you fertilize the spring bulbs? Mine are coming up now, but is it still too early? I'm in zone 2.

micePosted by lynn on Friday, August 28, 2009 9:12 PM ADT
I have noticed some of my tomatoes being eaten lately, and after thinking it may have been my dog, raccoons, groundhogs, and even a neighborhood cat, I've caught the culprit red handed (no pun intended) it was a mouse. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Does anyone out there in the wonderful world of gardening have any ideas, suggestions, help etc on how to stop mice from getting into my garden and ruining my hard worked for crop? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am interested in starting a new Halloween tradition. Besides candy, lets hand out seed along with and start the kids sprouting for winter, something for the table, a few indoor plants, and a plan for spring garden. I’ve contacted a few seed catalogue companies, they seem interested, but if a few more people call around besides myself; maybe by next fall that will be added to the National Halloween Holiday. I’ve been collecting marigold seeds on my own. They make a nice tea for colds. So I will give them with instructions next year.
re: garden chat roomsPosted by Doug on Thursday, December 3, 2009 3:08 PM AST
Rhubarb hasn’t been developed as an export crop. From what I know it doesn’t grow down south. So it is something that the north would have to accomplish. Rhubarb and celery look alike, Rhubarb doesn’t need much water to cook and gets mushy. Something the south might like to hydrate their bodies. I was going to send it down as rhubarb ice cream to cool them off. Or just frozen pieces so they can do what they want. They have been sending up celery all these years, which when cooked stays tougher more for winter weather, so lets balance the trade and send them rhubarb.

Message for Norma--I have a great passion for gardening and was gardening long before the gardening bug hit. My questions is - I live in rural NS zone 5b and have a very large rural lot with the backyard bordering on a natural tree area. I have a sunroom that over looks this area, how best would you suggest developing this area to be pleasing as a view from my sunroom. The area would be approx 3-4 acres. I like woodland flowers etc.

how do you grow chard to seed ?Posted by Barbara Bolez on Wednesday, March 10, 2010 12:32 PM AST
I love chard and harvest lots of it but have yet to have it bolt or be able to get seed from it. Do I need to grow some strictly for seed or can I harvest the outside leaves and let the center go till it blooms?

re: Darcey "Potatoes gone green"Posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 3:57 PM ADT
I've grown potatoes before... What you saw was normal. Potatoes turn green when they are getting ready to propagate (grow roots and sprout a new plant.) So don't worry, they haven't gone bad.
re: Colleen "Feezing fresh cut bulbs?"Posted by email@example.com on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 4:06 PM ADT
My experience freezing plants is to use that technique to preserve the stem and root system until the freeze passes over. The tender parts are usually the first to go when you do this. Your bulbs don't have a root system yet, they require humidity and warmth. Inexpensive solution is to put the clippings, container and all in a baggie or aquarium with waterproof lid with light watering. Good luck :)

LOL that's hillarious, no offence. That's the first time I heard that one. Vegetable plants are prone to insect invaiders. Do you want the humaine or inhumaine way to rid of the intrudor? I prefer humaine -I would cage my tomato plants with something sturdy enough, like a bird cage with very small gap between bars. Worked for me with my blueberry bushes. Good Luck :)

re: Charlotte "How take care of grape vines?"Posted by email@example.com on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 4:48 PM ADT
I like fruit vines -they are fun to tame. They need something to climb, or else they will not fruit. Tame their growth, because they get out of hand quickly.
re: Barbara "How to get Chard to seed?"Posted by firstname.lastname@example.org on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 4:53 PM ADT
I'm not a Chard expert, but generally plants that don't achieve adulthood is because they are being restricted from growth somehow. If your plant is in a pot, this might be keeping it from growing large enough to fruit/seed. Hope that helps.

re: lily leaves dyingPosted by ****** **** on Monday, June 28, 2010 9:16 PM ADT
Have the lilies bloomed? Generally both hybrid & Asiatic lilies' leaves gradually turn yellow, then brown, then drop at some point after blooming is finished. If you haven't deadheaded them (cut off the top where the bloom was), I recommend it as they do better next year if not allowed to set seed. They will come back up next year & probably with more bulblets at base.

I just noticed that one of my Rose of Sharon bushes that is 7 feet away from the Lilac is now having the beginnings of the same problem. I'd like to know what it is, if there's a cure or if they need to be removed. They are both mature plants.

I am starting a new garden in new soil that is esentialy clay/rocky junk. Although that will be a problem in itself my concern is also what plants can be planted next to each other. In the past I have had smaller gardens in which I didn't have to be as concerned as I do with this one because of this ones size. ie. my corn crop will be 3-4 rows deep but 40 ft long. various beans, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, broc. cabbage, garlic,onions etc. What goes next to what? I have all the room I can use, tunnels and raised beds will be built if I need them. New house, new garden...
re: garden chat roomsPosted by Lisa on Monday, January 24, 2011 3:40 PM AST
Replying to new garden post: When designing your veggie garden you must place items where they will receive the most sun it needs. For example you wouldn't place tomatoes need a corn row because the corn may grow to high to shield the sun from the tomatoes. Think about where you receive the most sun and plant the tallest items in the last row away fro the sun; and, or in the center and spread out on both sides if you have enough room for all.
