Your Questions About Gardening

John asks…

How or where can I get FREE garden supplies?

We are having a Vegetable garden this year. We live near Midland, MI. It will be a 1,000 Sq. feet garden but we do not have a whole lot of money. How can I get free Soil, mulch, Compost, manurer, tools, seeds, plants and anything like that?

GardenersCardiff answers:

First ask co-workers who own homes, homeowners always have stuff they want to get rid of. Also in the local papers at the beginning of the want ads they list the free stuff and you can also list what you’re looking for. Don’t forget the hardware store has all that stuff also and if you know anyone there they can help you, sometimes the bags of the stuff you need break in transit or even at the store, tell them not to throw it away and save it for you. Plants you can get from the nursery again some get messed up in transit and they get rid of them. Last let the neighborhood know what you’re in need of. And last you can ask at your church. Good luck………Tell me how you make out.

Steven asks…

GardenersCardiff answers:

They can be sent as free gifts by your neighbors. If u wanna buy it its at the lawn and garden store and its the blue pack with the wheelbarrow

Paul asks…

Is it safe to bake in terra cotta pots? The ones for gardening?

I’m thinking of doing cupcakes in the small pots from your local garden supply store.

GardenersCardiff answers:

Since I have done this more than a dozen times, I would say it is ok to bake in a terra cotta pot. BUT, you need to buy a NEW one, sterilize it by washing/scrubbing it with soap dish and water, put it in the oven for 2 hours at 200 degrees.. Let it cool, them VOILA ! It is safe… BUT, you need to line the whole inside with foil tightly before you pour your cake. Don’t forget to spray with cake release from Wilton. Marthat Stewart did this once on her TV show.
