I have roses, a purple tree really cool, some grass, a banana tree, an orange and lemon tree, little yellow flowers (dont know their name) and, well, i think that's all in my garden... :D

<p>i have so much stuff in our garden... tomatoes, jalapenos, strawberries, and cucumbers... they are all so fresh :0</p>

<p>I just have my windowsill, but it has a thriving (and well-used) aloe vera plant sitting next to a Christmas cactus.</p>


<p>pumpkins and gourds</p>

<p>Every type imaginable so I like to believe this.</p>

<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;roses tomatoes cabbage onnions peas beans</p>

<p>i had five young apple trees thats untill my dog ate them he eats anything.</p>

<p>Grass and weeds</p>

<p>Um.... in my outside hallway "garden", I have a planter full of nutritious dirt..... just waiting for a plant with a death wish.....&nbsp;</p>

<p>tomatoes, watermelons, cucumbers, banana peppers, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, lots of colourful flowers</p>

<p>Dead ones or close to death</p>

<p>Ugh I know nothing&nbsp;about plants. They all look the same to me. I can spot one that I know the name of tho, it's called-</p><br />
<p>a tree</p>


<p>&nbsp;no outdoor garden. period. indoors i have two foliage plants. Can life get anymore dismal than this?</p>

<p>My garden is not all that wonderful but I have been slowly working on it. I just bought some new plants today, Daisy and Speedwell. </p><br />
<p>What I really want to do plant is a poision garden, though that is quite redundant as most of the plants in people front and back yards are deadly...lol. I don't know I have this sort of morbid facination with the garden at Alnwick Castle in England. Live on the wrong side of the ocean to go see it but it has inspired me to try and grow my own Mandrake, not that I know what I would do with it other than I hear it is very hard to grow and I love a good challenge. </p>

<p>Chocolate mint.....Basil.....and rosemary....</p><br />
<p>&nbsp;</p><br />
<p>But there will be others...More sooner than later....But there will be more</p>

<p>I do not have a garden. No space. I used to grow potato's and carrots, strawberries, watermellon and sunflowers</p>

<p>Weed,er weeds!</p>

<p>we never really do a garden anymore. We did when I was younger and we would plant everything, not that it would grow...... Well anyway it's been years since we purposely planted stuff and the only thing that we can't stop growing are strawberries. They acutally spread and grow in our side yard and front yard now.</p>

<p><strong>Lavender...Plenty</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Rosemary</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Thyme</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Geraniums</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Aloe Vera</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Roses</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Potatoes</strong></p><br />
<p><strong>Mint</strong></p><br />

<p>Oh, It's this really pretty stuff, it's gray and has rocks in it. It doesn't need watering except for&nbsp;when you first&nbsp;"plant" it and you never have to weed it.&nbsp;I&nbsp;think they call it concrete.</p>

I have almost 250 different varieties of plants, trees and shrubs in my garden. This year I'm all about cool begonias and some new ferns. I also found an orange sedum ! We planted lots of cucumbers so we can make pickles.

<p>just cabbage that We planted right after daddy died...thats it...Gardening w/o daddy just seems pointless...maybe I'll feel like it next year.</p>

Wild flowers I planted for Mello.<br />
Not all came up but the ones that did are very pretty.

<p>I have a small ficus benjamina. and for those who don't know what that&nbsp; is its a fruitless fig tree or a weeping fig tree. the tree is actually really pretty when the dogs don't try to ruin it. it has lasted through a lot of weather and different other things too. our tree is a surviver. :)</p>

i can't even think of them all, but what i can-- is a huge rose bush, (that Mark and i had to trim back...it was at least 41/2 feet high, under the dining room window) begonias, 3 kinds hostas, 3 kinds lillies, petunias, carnation looking things, huge crawling vine thingy with pink flowers, impatiens, brown eyed susans galore, tons of shasta daisies , some ground bush thing with yellow flowers, another cabbage like thing with pink flowers, omg...i just can't remember the names of them all :) oh, and a huge extremely high purple lilac tree out back--oh the aroma. I can't even describe the rest or what the heck you call them, but the only annuals i have are the begonias and impatiens and petunias...all the rest are perenials.

<p>I have a bunch of Naked Ladies that are in bloom. I love my Japanese Maple and Crepe Myrtle trees. There's a small vegetable garden in the back corner with tomatoes, red & yellow peppers, green beans, cucumbers & squash. Red, Yellow & Piink Rose Bushes, some Hens & Chickens here and there,&nbsp; lots of Lavendar & a lovely lilac tree..........I love my little English Garden/Faery Land :)</p>

<p>The dead kind... I&nbsp;don't eat green therefore I don't grow green. Now kids, those I&nbsp;have better luck at but plants wilt as I walk by.</p>

i have an olive tree that doesnt grow olives

The bores got the squash. 2nd run of radishes are eaten. Herbs are as follows-sage, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, bay leaf, mint, lemon balm and basal. Scallions are making onions. Tomatoes, egg plant, & 4 types of peppers are doing well. Happy gardening! Iif i can't eat it, I don't want to grow it.

<p>Roses in one garden : &nbsp;Vinca Major, Hosta (two varieties), Painted Fern, Toad Lily, Caladium, Violas, and Trinity plants in another : Marigolds, Impatiens, Geraniums, and Wooly Blue Wild Violets in another : Dianthus of several varieties in another : Ornamental grass (little bluestem) in another : An Azalea (midnight flare) under an archway with english ivy growing up the archway. And I have flowering bushes of different kinds on one side of my house and trees, barberries, and hardy Mums lining the other side of my yard.</p><br />
