Your Questions About Gardening

Daniel asks…

Where can I find information on organic gardening for patios?

I live in an apartment, but grew up in the country. One thing I miss about that was having the space to have a garden. I also live in Arizona (moved from Louisiana) so the climate is much different from what I’m used to.

Does anyone know where I can find any information on starting an organic, edible garden with limited space, such as on a patio?

GardenersCardiff answers:

Get yourself a subscription to “Organic Gardening” magazine at: http://organicgardening.com/ . They often include articles on organic gardening in limited spaces.

Chris asks…

What is a good magazine to get examples of art?

For my art, I have to get examples from pictures from magazines. Like I have to get one picture that shows depth and how it leads the eye to the main attraction to the picture.
Any magazine title that could have good examples of those types of pictures would be really appreciated.
Preferably nature pictures or pictures without people in it.
Thanks! Once again, it would be really, really, appreciated!

George asks…

What common garden plants & shrubs are poisonous to dogs?

I’m planning on a complete landscaping of my garden, and planting a few new shrubs.
Obviously I want to avoid anything that will be toxic or poisonous for dogs (branches, leaves, flowers, or berries).

I’ve heard Honeysuckle & Rhododendron are 2 of the plants to avoid, as they are both highly poisonous to dogs (and cats).

Any others you know about?

GardenersCardiff answers:

Hello,
The following website contains a full list of all the plants with reported toxic effects on canines:

I found an article in a pet magazine about this subject.
It suggests tunnels, agility obstacle features, ensuring safety with fencing etc., and a designated area for the dog to relieve himself.
Remember never to use cocoa mulch, as it is very toxic to dogs.
Congrats for considering your dog in your landscaping plans!
