Garden tour and talk.

What about having a garden tour, visiting each other gardens, so we can (show off) learn from each other and discuss our why?s and how?s.
And if we do it several times a year, we can each learn from each other, adjust accordingly and see the progress.
We could have the meetings at each others home in rotation.

Dear gardeners!

First I'd like to show you my plot in Dunwoody Community Garden. We have picnic area at the park too - so bring some water and food and we can talk your gardening matters!

Please, consider inviting us to your garden next time!

      Well, in my life in New England I would be celebrating 4th of July all weekend but here it will be just on the 4th so I think I can make it. See you all then.

    I RSVPed but have a class that doesn't end until 10. Is it ok if I get there late? Probably closer to 11.

      Oh. Well my boss asked me last minute if I could work in the afternoon so unfortunately I can't make it at all now. I was lookin forward to it, but I guess I will try for next time. Thank you!

      I go to my garden almost every day. If you are interested to visit it - call me when you have time to do it

    Hello all! It looks like my plan is a bit confusing...
    First I`m going to show you my garden and tell what and how I grow there.
    Then (optionally, if you have spare time), we can go to the picnic area close to the garden to spend some more time talking about gardening and share our gardening stories.
    I love eating outdoors, especially near my garden :) And I like fruit and nuts - so I`ll bring some.
    You can bring everything you want to eat that morning, and of course feel free to share it. It seems to me that it is more pleasant to speak eating nuts or something else))) But it is up to you.

  • Liz

    So, just to make sure I understand the plans - - we are to bring our own lunch and water - - or is this a potluck where we bring something to share?

    I don't know what i was thinking. However, we have to go to the annual Dachshund races and afterwards to the open house at our neighborhood pool, I am not sure I will have the energy to drive all the way to Dunwoody in the morning as well but I will try to make it.
    What kind of food do we have to bring?

    Sorry I missed this and I hope there will be a tour again soon. I would love to have you all come to my "garden" in Marietta just to see what not to do as I said before.

    I have recently purchased a spray (to connect to water hose)which says it kills Bermuda grass. It has been a few days but the Bermuda grass still looks very health. Next I will try something else.I know I can hand pull it in the planting area but it is almost too much for me to do and I also would like to switch to Fescue if I can get rid of the Bermuda. Right now I have half and half.
    Has anyone tried to kill Bermuda before?

      I think the last link may be one of the most beneficial. Eradication will be a challenge. You are up against stolons and runners. You may have to dig/pound a barrier between the lawn and your ornamental beds to keep out the common bermuda.

      d of course, as with any herbicide, be aware of where the runoff water goes.

    Has there been a date set for a garden tour and if not could we decide on one and maybe visit several gardens during one tour?

    You could certainly tour my "garden" to learn about all the things not to do.
    Thank you Laura, I will plant the daikon in the fall. We buy it a lot anyway. Do you grow it from seeds or do you get plants somewhere?

    May 22, 2013

    • Laura B.

      I just order seed online or pick them up at local stores. And direct seed plant them in the garde

    I am apart of a community garden but there is so much I still have to learn and I know there are enough people here that can help me! I look forward to learning from you guys: )

    Hi Ulrike, I use black fabric to supress weeds (the best I've found comes in big rolls from Sam's Club). I just keep pulling out the Bermuda grass by hand. Another thing I've tried is planting daikon radishes in fall. They out-compete just about everything and they also are great for breaking up compacted soil.

    I am not a new gardener, have 40 years experience in New England. Georgia, however, is like starting all over again and I am tired of the trail and error, I am way too old to go through this process again, therefor I would love some input from other gardeners.
    For instance I had no idea how Bermuda grass creeps into planting areas until it happened. I will now try to kill some with spray but other areas are too close to flowers and I have to hand weed.
    I also have this vine coming up everywhere. I found out it is a tuber and very difficult to get rid off. Last thing I tried is to put weed killer into a container and put tips of it into this until it kills it, roots and all.
    I was not able to take all the container inside when it rained so this did not work. Any better ideas?

    I would love to go on a garden tour. Don't have one but will give my time to help grow and pitch in where ever needed

    Yes, I would love to tour others gardens. I am new at this and I need all the help I can get!

    I recently moved back to Georgia from points north, and haven't tried my hand at gardening here. I'd love to see what works here, and plan out my future gardens based on the advice and experience of others.

      I am also not used to all the squirrels constantly digging up my planting boxes on the deck. In New England we had cats who kept them at bay.

    I am somewhat new to Georgia and have not had any luck with my gardening efforts, I can use all the help I can get.
    I had no problems in New England, whatever I planted did well, not here......

    I am in the process of creating my garden. I would like to see other gardens.

    Yes, I would even put my container garden on tour. I have over 50 containers in which I use to garden with.

  • Roxanna

    I've RSVP'd yes as I'd love to see other gardens. My garden is just a few containers of herbs at this point so it's not really tour-worthy yet! :)

    Hi all! I WWOOF i.e. volunteer part-time on an organic farm in Madison. Would people be interested in visiting in exchange for a bit of light work e.g. weeding, picking fruit etc. in exchange for a free organic lunch on the farm as a thank you?

    I love that idea! My garden is not far enough along, and I have not done anything deliberately organic - am just learning. Would love to see and hear about those w. more experience.

    My wife and I would love to have one at our house. We have a rather eclectic garden, scaled down from a farm last year. We have commitments for the next couple of weeks but can host one in a few weeks if anyone is interested in coming to Jasper.

    Depending on date and time, I am in.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
