I bought my first house in Maine, and would like to make a few flower gardens around the house. Since I have no idea how or where to start, does anybody know of a good book (or two!) that would be helpful for a beginning gardener? I've looked online, but there are so many to choose from!
I am trying to start a flower garden but have no idea how to do it. Is there a web site that I can go on to learn? No home depot was no help.
My front flower garden at this new house has holes around it, and bees constantly fly in there. It's pretty clear they have an underground nest there. I need to dig up the flower bed so I can make some changes, but obviously I need to get rid of the bees first before I start digging and stirring them up. I've tried putting rags in the holes doused with gasoline, then tried bleach rags as well. This has not worked. Anyone have other ideas? (i've also tried the hardware store spray-bee killer-but I can't get deep enough in the nest for all of them to be affected. ) Any help is appreciated!!! PSF-11- Yeah, they are Yellow Jackets.
I have grass growing like crazy in my flower garden they are thriving and doing so well. Unfortunately the grass is going crazy as well. What can I put on the grass to get rid of it but not harm my flowers?
I have moved into an apartment with a concrete backyard. I'm not allowed to rip up the concrete. Can i still put topsoil over the concrete for small flowers and shrubs? Any ideas on how to creatively go beyond sinple potted plants? Thanks!
I want to put a flower garden in the yard in front of my house, but I'm not sure what I would be able to use. Since that side of the house faces the west, it doesn't get sunlight until the afternoon. I've looked around at a few different green houses to get some ideas, but all I find is plants that require full sun. I would like to get flowers or small shrubs or maybe even some climbing flowers. Any suggestions??? Thanks!

Here are the flowers I have decided I would like to put in the garden. 1. Lilies 2. Gladiolus 3. Roses 4. White daisies 5. Sun daisies 6. Maybe carnations 7. Maybe sunflowers Does anyone have any suggestions to add to my list that are popular, beautiful flowers that you would buy? Thanks in advance.
I'm entering a small flower arrangement in the fair this year. It's only going to be five flowers, with some filler and greenery. I'm going to be using red and white carnations, with babies breath and leather leaf. The arrangment can't be any higher then 5 1/2 or wider then 5 1/2 inches. I was thinking of putting marbles, or fish tank rocks at the bottom, and tie a bow for decoration, but I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas to decorate?

I am looking for easy to grow, small, plants, herb, or flowers on a window sill. I live in Northern California with great weather and the window sill is west facing with about 5 to 7 hours of direct sunlight tops(depending on season). The window sill is only 4 inches wide so a big plant is unrealistic. Something in very small containers (like the ones that most seedlings come from the nursery) is what I am looking for. Any suggestions?
