hey there!
i have recently developed an interest in gardening. I am a dimwitt as far as gardening is concerned, please help me to
1- collect gardening tools(basic)
2-flowers and plants. how to get and sow them.

GardenersCardiff answers:

Ok… First, basic garden tools….

You will need…..

*Spade
*Trowel
(I prefer the narrow, transplanter trowel)
*Cultivator
*Garden gloves (water proof, preferably)

Optional….

*Knee cushion
*Pruning Sheers
*Bucket/basket to carry supplies around in
*Hand rake

The tools you need will depend on what you plan to do, really.

Here are some websites that tell a little about gardening tools….

Next, your plants….

You have three choices:

1. Seed
2. Bulb
3. Potted plants

For instant results, nothing beats the potted plant!
But… Nothing beats seed if you are wanting to stay on the economical side!
…Why not a combination, a few plants, and several packets of seed? =)

You can get seeds online, in garden shops (local nurseries, Walmart, Kmart, even the Dollar Stores)… Some grocery stores carry seeds.

What type of flowers/plants you choose really depends upon your preference.

As for flowers that are easy to start from seed, I would recommend Marigold, Zinnias, Pansies and Petunias.

You may want to choose a combination of flowers, foliage plants (Hostas, Caladium, Ferns, etc), herbs and even veggies if you’d like.

A couple of websites to get some tips and ideas….

Richard asks…

Gardening tools?

The whole experience of going to garden centres and DIY stores is driving me mad so have decided to start shopping online for all the stuff i need. Have done a search online and have found so many sites and don’t really know where to start – can anyone recommend a good gardening or DIY site with lots of variety and not too expensive?

GardenersCardiff answers:

Totally agree – i dont use garden centres anymore for tools etc. I use this site specifically for garden tools http://www.pentagondirect.com/department/garden although they dont sell the flowers and plants, just the equipment and tools. They have a range of products for the different areas of the garden that you may focus on and DIY stuff too if you need it.
I tend to still head to the garden centre for plants and flowers though, as i like to pick out the particular plants, which is safer i think, as you may be sent wilting or half dead plants.

Mary asks…

How do you get gardening tools (like the shovel) on Sonic Adventure 2?

I bought a tree seed and found out you need to have gardening tools to plant it, but i don’t know where or how to get them. I NEED HELP!!!

GardenersCardiff answers:

Win all 3 levels of the Crab Pool race for the shovel and win all 3 levels of the Stump Valley race for the watering can. To get to the races (and karate!) go through the cave in the normal garden. Have fun. :)
