Your Questions About Gardening

Daniel asks…

How should I go about building a portable run for my hens?

I really want something like this but it is really expensive so I was wondering how to build a secure one. I want to be lazy and put the run over spots that I want to turn into a vegetable garden.

What would be the best way to build this run to put my girls in during the day?

GardenersCardiff answers:

Take a picture of that to your hardware store. The hardware man could set you up with all those parts. It would fewer than 50 bucks.

The only tools you need are a saw and scissors.

Check out the back yard chickens. There are lots of good people willing to help you out there.

Helen asks…

How can I find the manufacturer of a french country antique cabbage rose quilt?

I am looking for the manufacturer of a french chic antique cabbage rose or also known as english rose garden quilt. I have found this quilt on Ebay and Overstock .com. On Overstock .com catalog #10087542. I also have a model #GL-WB0726.

This is a beautiful quilt with an antique tea background. With a romantic French blend of colors including melon rose and pink roses, butter yellow, sage green, rose and a touch or French periwinkle blue. It has several prints consisting of roses, wildflowers, vintage roses, and cabbage roses along with a ticking stripe and garlands of flowers.

I want to find the manufacturer to inquire about purchasing fabric to make window treatments. According to the two vendors I have found to have this item there are none available.

Any help is appreciated,


GardenersCardiff answers:

I’m sorry, I couldn’t find the manufacturer for you. An alternative is to take samples of the fabric (say, the shams) with you to a quilt shop and try to find something similar, or at least complementary. That style is very similar to some popular fabrics currently available. Check out Hancocks of Paducah, an excellent online quilting and home decorating fabric store. Search or browse through the florals. One designer in particular to check out is Three Sisters by Moda fabrics. They have several lines that have a similar feel. Check out Faded Memories, the Three Sisters Favorite (especially Paris Flea Market), and Seaside Rose. These are just the ones available through Hancocks – also check out eBay for Moda Three Sisters, Gingham Rose, or ask your local quilt shop if they have any of these lines (or similar fabrics).

Good luck – it’s a beautiful set.
