I searched and found nothing.

Soooo... anyone here a gardener?


This coming spring I'm thinking of planting some flowering Kale and Meadow Sage. Any tips?

No, that would be 'cannabis sativa' not kale or meadow sage.

(Although meadow sage is a type of salvia, but not the pyschedelic kind)

I don't know what those plants are. But I've heard plant pots are a plus when it comes to planting.

Pretty much.

I have absolutely no experience with gardening though. That's why I'm asking I guess.

Edit: Flowering Kale


Meadow Clary

i would love to get into gardening. i just got an email today from some people who are looking to start an organic garden this spring. i'm really excited for it.

Do you have space to lay out a box 3'x5' or maybe 4'x8' about 6-8" deep. If so you can create a wonderful herb/spice garden that will provide for you year round.

Hmm, that sounds like an idea. Although six feet is pretty deep.

I hope my parents let me dig up the yard.

I'm not a fan, though I can appreciate a nice garden. There's a lower park near my college with a pond and everything with statues and flower beds which is really nice. I might be tempted to grow something, but my rabbit lives in the garden and he eats bloody everything.

Oh I see. That seems like something I could do then.

I asked my parents and they said if I did all the work, then I could do it.
I like doing yardwork though.

6 ft would be ok for planting unwanted neighbors tho they don't grow well.

Lay out your box. Half round landscape timbers work well. When box is completed dig out about 6" of the dirt inside the box. Save dirt for you will reuse it. Fill the area you just removed the dirt from with sand. Play sand works well. This provides a solid base that drains well. Take the dirt you removed and if there is sod on it place the sod down grass side down first. Refill with the rest of your dirt you removed. Next get a couple bags of topsoil/potting soil to cover about the top 2-3" (read inches). Now you have a spot to plant all types of goodies.
Basil - easy to grow and grreat to add to almost anything. Just pick a couple of leaves at a time to add to whatever you are cooking. At the end of the season dry whats left and you have fresh basil to use all winter
Marjoram, Cilantro, Parsley, Sage, Oregano, Chives, Thyme all used the same as basil. Just pick what you want to use all summer and then dry it at the end of the year for use all winter.
Garlic - Can take up to 2 years to grow decent sized cloves but well worth the wait.
I replace half every year as I pick it.
Green onions - great to pick and use as you want.
Coriander - Pick leaves during the summer. When it goes to seed you now have nutmeg.
All this stuff is easy to grow and use.
PS place your garden in an area that gets full morning sun but is in the shade most of the afternoon if possible.
Have fun and good luck.

I had a papaya today for breakfast and while I was scooping out the 5428 seeds from the inside I decided the next one I eat I'll take a few seeds and plant 'em and grow a papaya tree

I'm awesome

Too late
Oh and by the way this is the time of year you want to get it started. A winter layover does the pottingsoil/topsoil you put on top time to loose some of its "heat" . Stuff grows better in it after it has been out for a bit.

Yeah, my guess is that it's Salvia officinalis.
