Your Questions About Gardening

Daniel asks…

Is it easy to grow Broccoli and cauliflower?

I wanted to start my own garden and grow my own vegetables… I hear Fruits are hard to maintain because they need constant watering, but I would like to try some vegetables… What are some easy, veggies to grow, and any tips on broccoli and cauliflower?

GardenersCardiff answers:

Almost all veggies are easy to grow if you have some time and know their needs. Starting a garden is work, but you enjoy the result. Maybe a basic gardening book from your local library can help you get started.
Broccoli and cauliflower are winter veggies.
You can start seeds in late summer or buy plants in early fall.
Have fun

Susan asks…

what kind of vegetables can I grow in the Philippines?

I am moving to the Philippines soon, and I would like to grow my own vegetables in my garden over there. I wonder what kind of vegetables I can grow there, when to sow/plant them and when to harvest.
Thanks for helping me out.

GardenersCardiff answers:

It’s all in the song “Bahay Kubo”. I don’t know how to translate all the veggie names from tagalog to English though.. Singkamas, talong (eggplant), sigarilyas, mani (peanut), sitaw, bataw, patani (long string beans), kundol, patola, upo, kalabasa (squash), rabanos (radish), mustasa (mustard)…… Tomatoes… Etc. Some plants won’t grow unless you’re in the colder regions like Baguio but try the website below. Type in “philippines” in the search box and it will come up with both the Filipino and English names for the vegies :)

Sharon asks…

What vegetables could I grow on an apartment deck?

I really want to learn how to grow my own vegetables, but the problem is i like in an apartment so I only have a balcony. Its a rather large balcony but a balcony with a cover nonetheless. It still gets plenty of sunlight, but im sure not as much as if it were outside. Are there any vegetables that grow well in slightly shaded areas and in pots?

GardenersCardiff answers:

Most veggies like lots of sun. Slightly shaded areas wouldn’t be good for tomatoes, but herbs would do well. Pepper plants might make it, but definitely put tomatoes in the sunniest area.
