Your Questions About Gardening

Richard asks…

A beginner garden?

My 7 year old daughter wants to start a garden. I have no idea what to plant. I am looking at building something that has 4-6 2′ sections; allowing 3′ between each square to work them. I live in north-western Illinois. What would be some good vegetables for beginners? Do I want to mix flowers with vegetables? Any good websites for me to check out without being too in depth?

GardenersCardiff answers:

There are tons of websites for gardening kids. Garden Gate (a very good magazine) offers Kids Garden Plans. You can see it here:

Here are a couple searches to help you:

I think it is great that she wants to garden and wonderful that you are willing to accomodate it. Great parenting!

Ruth asks…

Top 5 magazine/journals for woman interested in cooking, home and garden?

Which magazine do you regularly read? Which one do you trust? Sometimes I look at the article and keep wondering if people really buy the products they are trying to promote. So please tell me the magazine/journals you find useful in this respect. Thanks

GardenersCardiff answers:

I like family circle, ladies home journal, good housekeeping and martha stewart. Lots of good ideas. Remember, all magazines rely mostly on their advertisers for revenue, not subsriptions. Take what you like and leave the rest. And by all means, if you’re not happy with a purchase for any reason, return it, insisting on a full refund. If they want your business again in the future, they’ll also send you an apology and sometimes even a coupon for future use.

William asks…

GardenersCardiff answers:

Try interior design, ot Better Homes and Gardens. Both are available online and in print format.
