Just had similar experience this year. Moved far, far away, bought a farm in a climate where people actually grow crops…not just grass hay. Inquired about the “free” compost pile at landfill then got schooled by local gardeners that some farmers spray “Grazon” (had NEVER heard of it!) and the likes and to be very wary about buying topsoil/compost from local sources. Was so excited to find big round bales of straw on my place left from past owner. Built amazing lasagne style gardens with this straw and also mulched top of most beds with it. Found out it was sprayed and did my best to get the mulch off but the lasagne beds were hopeless. Wow. I lost almost everything that had been planted in those beds and that was the only variable that was different. Grass clippings from our yard is all I have used for years now. The clippings get dumped in a pile and left to dry out a bit first before I mulch with it. I only had a few weeds pop up here and there. Sorry about your tomatoes, Jill. Thanks for the information, and I’m interested to know what you find out with the testing. I haven’t had that particular problem, but I sure have enough other problems in the garden to figure out over the years. Hi Hazel, thank you for that. Have never had nest box as neither me or partner great at DIY. My garden is very wildlife friendly as in a lot of it is untouched! I have 2 large hedges, laurel in front & I don’t know what the other one is usual hedging plant(box?), but it is a bit of a monster now, probably 15ft, neighbour has asked if he could cut it to 8ft which is fine as long as he does it soon before nesting starts. 🙂 When growing food indoors, you place your seeds or plants in planters or pots and use high quality soil that you can buy at the farmers market or in any home improvement store or gardening center. By far the most important part of growing plants indoors is to keep your plants in a sunny place. Healthy soil, adequate water and plenty of natural light will ensure that your vegetables thrive and have a bountiful harvest. Another family of approaches seeks to delegate some of the programming responsibilities to other people. For example, meta-design aims at design and implementation of systems by professional programmers such that the systems are amenable to redesign through tailoring (configuration and customization) by end-user programmers (Andersen and Mørch, 2009; Costabile et al., 2009; Fischer, 2009). In some large organizations, an expert end-user programmer, called a gardener,1 serves to ease or eliminate programming among the organization’s end-user community (Gantt and Nardi, 1992). Such a gardener creates reusable code, templates and other resources, and provides these to other users, whose programming tasks thereby become substantially simpler. While gardeners each focus on a particular end-user community, programming environments facilitate delegation of programming across communities by aiding reuse of code. For example, FireCrystal (Oney and Myers, 2009) is a Firefox plug-in that allows a programmer to select user interface elements of a webpage and view the corresponding source code. FireCrystal then eases creation of another web page by providing features to extract and reuse this code, especially code for user interface interactions. Another system, BluePrint (Brandt et al., 2010), is an Adobe Flex Builder plug-in that semi-automatically gleans task-specific example programs and related information from the web, and then provides these for use by end-user programmers. Still other systems are designed to emulate strategies or heuristics that users themselves appear to employ when looking for reusable code, thereby simplifying the task of choosing which existing programs to run or reuse (e.g. Gross et al., 2010; Scaffidi et al., 2009). So … you’ve been reading my garden columns and I’ve convinced you that if a former news anchor can grow a garden on a balcony, how hard can it be? My garden is too big My garden collapses after June There is nothing to look at in winter We all lead pretty busy lives these days and between juggling our work, family, sporting and social lives we’re left with little time for the things such as gardening, baking or even getting a good homemade meal on the table. Straw and manure are both completely unsafe now and I recommended in my composting book that gardeners now need to stay away from both except under very narrow restrictions, such as they grew it themselves or got manure from an animal that has not been fed any hay from outside sources. Really frustrating. Grow disease-resistant varieties. Keep garden weed free and clean. At some point during your horticultural career, you will come across a garden problem or two. Whether that’s struggling to keep your plants looking their best, or trying to get rid of annoying pests who seem determined to eat what you’ve grown. It’s totally normal to encounter these problems and luckily we’re here to help you solve them. We have plenty of tools and tonics in stock to help you keep your flowers, vegetables and fruits strong and healthy. Answer: It won’t be possible to completely eradicate the grasshoppers, but there are some things you can do to keep their population low enough to prevent any serious damage to your yards and gardens. Solution: Many gardeners would not consider shade a problem as there are dozens upon dozens of shade-loving plants. Fill a shady landscape with hosta, hellebores, bleeding hearts, hollies, azaleas, boxwood, ferns, ginger, English ivy, hydrangea and ajuga. Stewart brought her gardening talents to the concrete jungle back in 2008. That’s when she made an agreement with management at the Westport post office to plan a community garden in front of the facility. There were gardeners in the Bulkley Valley/Skeena Valley (BC, Canada) that used hay and straw/manure contaminated with Grazon (picloram) – widely used to combat broadleaf weeds. I was aware of that so could take precautions and did some testing with my straw for mulching and that I also use for my chickens. Everyone can do it at home to make sure it is not contaminated. Grazon has a long half life therefore gardeners in our area had to dig soil about 3 feet deep and exchange with not contaminated topsoil/compost mix and start new. Big job and sometimes quite expensive. Before adding compost/hay/straw/manure do the simple test and be sure your herbicide free Here is the link to an article explaining the bioassay method to test for herbicides http://northword.ca/features/environment/mean-manure-killer-compost-grazon-after-effects-in-the-bulkley-valley/ Hope this is of help! Monika Want seclusion? Then this is the garden for you. All walls/fences have trellis panels fixed to their fronts and tops so that climbers can be trained up to hide the space from onlookers. The wide S-shaped path is cobbled for a relaxed feel, so make sure you choose a table and chairs with chunky legs to avoid wobble. Go for low-maintenance exotics, which provide year-round interest, and place large plants, such as tree ferns and a windmill palm, in the borders, so that the shed can’t be seen from indoors and the bench is hidden from neighbouring houses. Passionflowers grow quickly, but won’t damage fences or brickwork if given supports, such as a trellis, to cling to. Really appreciate your sharing this with us! So good to know and be aware of…we do want natural soil and gardens. I’m sorry about your own! Straw and manure are both completely unsafe now and I recommended in my composting book that gardeners now need to stay away from both except under very narrow restrictions, such as they grew it themselves or got manure from an animal that has not been fed any hay from outside sources.
