Your Questions About Gardening

Thomas asks…

What is the best corn seed for home garden?

I get all these catalogs (Jungs, Gurneys, etc.) that have the sugar enhanced varieties and I would like to know what you think is the best corn to plant. With a crop of corn, you only have one shot so I want to make sure it is really sweet.

What seed do you reccomend?

GardenersCardiff answers:

I reccomend you go to the feed store and ask for sweet corn seed, that’s where I buy mine. You can sprinkle seven dust on the stalk and it will keep the bugs out of the corn. You can get it at the feed store too.

Linda asks…

The best place to promote/sell solid oak garden furniture?

Hi everyone. I have brand new solid oak garden furniture to sell in the UK but I am not sure what the best way of promoting it would be. I thought of contacting catalogues and local furniture shops, or is that just a waste of time? I am asking for ideas (apart from eBay please).

Thank you.

GardenersCardiff answers:

Hi, Where I live there are a number of wine bars and restaurants that have nice outdoor areas and a number of local artists and crafts people sell their products there. All the tables and chairs can be bought. No only does it offer the restaurant / bar an opportunity to earn commission on sales but it also means that they do not have buy their own outdoor furniture and also they often get attractive and unusual furniture to display which enhances the appearance of their garden / outdoor areas. Have a look at the Georges Restaurant pics where they have some interesting example of hand carved oak furniture that customers can also buy, see : http://www.thegeorges.uk.com/gallery/Georges%20026.jpeg and http://www.thegeorges.uk.com/gallery/Georges%20043.jpeg
