Any ladies here that are into gardening?

Spring is coming up and I can't wait to plant my herbs. I grow thyme, basil, rosemary, parsley, chives, sage, and oregano. There is nothing like using fresh herbs to cook with. My favorite flower are roses, but I don't have much luck with them. :

Every single thing I've ever planted has died, so you could say I'm a frustrated gardener. I love miniature roses though.

I love roses, and I wish I had a place to put them.

It seems like the unusual colored bushes don't live very long. Red and pink do well. My mom has a bush grown from a piece of a bush that is over 100 years old. She always has good luck with everything except yellow, but her neighbor had a huge yellow one. I love the smell of them too. I hope I can have a big yard one day and have a whole rose garden.

I've also always wanted to grow a food garden, or even be a farmer. I used to help my grandparents with their garden when I was a kid.

Unfortunately I do not have a green thumb, but it's something I want to learn. I'm lucky though that my husband does, he grows some vegetables in the summer and he does a great job with our roses. Here in New York, I think we have to wait until at least June before you can plant anything.

My mom's got this big honking burning bush in the back yard...
I'm a dedicated gardener's helper
She had a little fit when she saw the split-leaf hydrangea in hippy's back yard.
I'm sure I just spelled that wrong.
*points* here is our dirty work

i worked for the gardens department at a college nearby for the last three summers, and it looks like i'll be doing the same this summer


i don't know anyhting about gardening. more like "hardcore gardening" where you spend your day ripping out shrubery and driving golf cart-loads of vines that you took out of throny bushes

ordering from catalogs

Has anyone ordered any plants (not bulbs)
from a catalog? I want to order like a
ďsun gardenĒ but Iím afraid Iíll get tiny
plants that wonít live or will take forever
to grow.
