    I know: Mibbians and gardening?! Together?! We're a bunch of writers and all-over indoor people, aren't we? I noticed there weren't any topics on gardening. And by gardening, I don't mean lawn or yard work. I mean pretty flowers, herbs, and greenery.

    I've been thinking about starting an herb garden, maybe dabbling in fruits and vegetables. I'd really like to start a rose bush so I can make rosewater.

    Are there any flora children here who would like to discuss?

    My older brother helped my great uncle shape the hedge in his garden like thomas the tank engine for my nephew as a one-off thing. It became a huge hit with the town so he's kept it trimmed and nice. xD

    He was even given permission from his neighbors to shape their hedges like train carriages, and has painted his fence white with level crossing lights on it.

    Here's a picture the local newspaper took of it. That's my great uncle, just after the train itself had been completed.

    Right now, I'm growing sweet basil, onions, chives and oregano ... The onions are sprouting like crazy. :)

    Anyone have any special tips they have?

    @ Lil'Biskette

    Start with something easy. Like basil and Lemon Balm. They're used in a lot of things and are extremely easy to grow.

    I was going to start a vegetable and herb garden last year, along with a flower garden, but by the time I had thought of it the month was June. But I've gotten my tools, blubs, seeds and soil together! The first weekend it's 55 or above and not raining I'm going to dig up the dirt. I've started a compost for some fertilizer and my dad is having top soil delivered because all of our grass washed away in the floods. I can't wait to start! Cute I'm unsure the style I want to use, though. Being a beginner I'm most likely going to use a simple style for the flower garden Think

    My boyfriend and I are starting a japanese garden (mix of stroll and tea garden). So far we've got all the planing ready (took us two weeks --we don't have much free time Sad) and planted bulbs of Asiatic Lilies and Irises (yesterday).
    There's a list of plants we want to grow, more all the stuff needed in a proper japanese garden (pond/stream with a shishiodoshi, a little bridge, rocks, white sand, lanterns, water basin, etc).
    Sounds like a lot of work and it probably will consume a lot of our free time, but we're 100% committed to the idea and I'm sure the result will be something we'll be totally proud of. Wink
