Gardening Tips FAQ


A great way to relax after a hard days work is strolling through your garden admiring the beautiful plants and flowers. Sitting down to dinner and eating the fresh vegetables you grew will also bring a smile to your face. Gardening is an art that takes time to learn to be successful but is worth the time and effort you put into it. Gardeners are always anxious to learn new tips and ideas to make their gardening easier, faster or more productive so here are some questions and answers that should interest you.

Gardening Tips FAQ # 1 - Seeds

Q: What is the life expectancy of vegetable seeds?

A: If you place your vegetable seeds in an airtight, dry container with a silica gel pack to reduce any moisture and place them in your refrigerator, many can last up to five years. You can stores vegetable seeds such as broccoli, cabbage, tomato, radish, and sunflower seeds up to five years, carrots, pumpkin, peas, and spinach up to three years. Do not keep onion, spinach, parsnip and corn more than one year.

Gardening Tips FAQ # 2 - Bulbs

Q: When is the best time to plant bulbs?

A: It is best to plant bulbs that flower in the springtime, in the fall or late summer but this depends on your climate zone. For fall or summer flowering bulbs, plant these in the springtime.

Gardening Tips FAQ # 3 - Flowers

Q: Is there anything I can add to the soil to improve my roses performance?

A: Yes, use banana peels around the base of your rose bush just under the soil. It will slowly break down in the soil and add potassium, which roses love.

Gardening Tips FAQ # 4 - Tidying Up

Q: Can I cut the foliage after my spring or fall flowering bulbs finish blooming, as the plant looks unattractive in my garden?

A: No, you need to leave the foliage on until it turns yellow, as this is what feeds the bulb. It often takes several weeks for this to happen, so in the mean time, plant some ornamental grass or annuals to hide them if they bother you.

Gardening Tips FAQ # 5 - Washing Up

Q: I hate wearing gardening gloves but it is very difficult to remove the soil from my hands. Is there a way to remedy this?

A: Take a nylon stocking, old sock or even a thin sock and put a bar of soap in the foot. Keep this by your outside tap or waterspout. The soap lathers up while the stocking or sock acts as a scrubber.
