52 Garden Themes - Wisconsin Garden Video Blog 760

71 ratings | 1672 views
We've actually added 3 more - NOW 55 GARDEN THEMES posted on our http://www.WisconsinGarden.com website - - - We recently created a basic chart that explores 52 Garden Themes starting with the Alphabet Garden through the Xeriscope Garden. We’re often asked to share ideas for new and existing gardens that range from full sun to areas under full shade so we thought we would share these ideas in a video. Anyone of the 52 themes can help jump-start or clarify your ultimate garden vision whether you’re new to gardening, simply looking for some ideas, or perhaps seasoned gardeners wanting to add or expand a special theme or idea to their existing garden. While this list of 52 garden themes is by no means complete, its intent was meant to share an interesting variety of potential ideas that you may not have considered for your garden. Visit our WisconsinGarden.com website to view the entire list of 52 Garden Themes with a brief description of their function and purpose.

Now that our classes are winding down we actually filmed part 1 & 2 of our May Garden Tour yesterday.  We are hoping to finishing filming part 3 & 4 today weather permitting.  It has been cold, windy and rainy for several weeks and even more rain is in the forecast for this afternoon and the next two days.  Richard is currently working on producing one more video before working on the May Garden Tour videos.  Thank you for your patience and for watching, caring & sharing.

CAN YOU LET ME KNOW THE TYPE / BRAND OF TOMATOES YOU USE THANK YOU TERRY
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
TomatoBerry is our all-time favorite cherry-like tomato.  It is a hybrid.  They're super sweet, don't split and stay on the vine. We buy our plants from Steins Garden Center here in Wisconsin.  TomatoBerry seeds are also available online.  We don't always plant the same tomato species as we are an eclectic experimental garden.  You should consider what grows well in your soil, climate and growing zone.  This year we will be testing large varieties such as Sunray Gold, Caspian Pink, Ruttgers, Mortgage Lifter, and medium size: Celebrity, Heinz 1439, & Health Kick Roma.  We may find more at tomorrow Master Garden Plant Sale.  Other species we have successfully grown were, Wisconsin 55, Big Boy, Early Girl, Brandywine, Marglobe, Kellog Breakfast (orange), Wapsipinicon (yellow peachy color Heirloom from Iowa) and far too many others to list.  Last year we gave Blueberry Tomato a thumbs down and decided to avoid some of the super wrinkled heirloom tomatoes that just attracted too many sow bugs even though they were delicious.  Hope this partial list was helpful. Thank you for watching, caring and sharing. Lynn & Richard

Hi! I know this is not related to this video but since you guys inspired me I decided to grow some flowers by seed this year. I thought they were doing pretty good but in the past week I noticed my seedlings are turning a pale green color almost yellow. They are marigolds, zinnias, and an assortment of other flowers. I don't know what's wrong with them. They are about 4 inches tall now and all have nice leaves on them but the color is concerning me. Would you know what is wrong with them? I did water them sometimes twice a day sometimes just to make sure they don't dry out as we had really warm weather. That's the only thing I could think of. Please help!

You are most welcome. TKS Lynn & Richard

I will try that , thank you for taking the time to explain to me:) you both are amazing! 😘

We amend our clay based soil with peat moss & perlite.  If the soil is drying out too quickly do a quick water spray so the seedling don't dry up and die but don't over water.  You may have to hook up a temporary sheet, umbrella, cloth, etc. to add a bit more shade to the area.  It the area is too large that could present a problem.  At this point spray them gently early in the morning and wait to see how they regain their strength.  No fertilizer.  If the soil looks really dry and cracking by noon gently spray them as needed.  Keep us posted.

Keep a watchful eye on the soil.  Not too moist and not too dry.  Seeds do need to remain moist to open.  Keep us posted. TKS Lynn & Richard
Yaz Q (2 years ago)
The reason I was nervous about them drying out was because we have clay soil. I amended that area really well but still some days I could see the top of the soil cracking so I would water really frequently because I thought I needed to keep them moist.

Thank you both for such great ideas. I am also a retired kindergarten teacher. One year we did a children's garden with a Peter Rabbit theme . We cooked carrot muffins with our harvest. Living in Santa fe New Mexico at home last year I had a Salsa Garden Green Chili, tomatoes, garlic, and onions. I love your birdie!
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
We too love the idea of a salsa garden. Thanks for watching, caring and sharing. Lynn & Richard

Excellent ideas! Several weeks ago I took a couple of tiny little tomato and jalapeno seedlings to my father's house. He was dealing with chemotherapy, and it wasn't going well. I had heard him tell about having just thrown a bunch of pepper seeds in a spot one year and they grew like "sons-a-*****es" (He was a bit rough around the edges:)) I took the seedlings in their little compostable pots in a plastic container that fit in his kitchen window.. I thought by the next time I came they would have just been neglected and probably dried up. But nope, the next time I came I walked in and the first thing I saw were those leggy plants in his window. He said he saw they were kind of limp and sad so he watered them, always from the bottom, and kept turning them since they leaned to the light. That night he passed away, that was two weeks ago today, and now I have those two plants to grow this summer. Your themes made me think of a Memorial Garden, or Memory Garden. You can plant the favorite flowers or vegetables of someone who is no longer with you, and always think of them as you nurture the garden. The funny thing is he hated tomatoes and peppers, but he said he grew them several years in a row when he was younger and just gave them all away. :)

So sorry for your loss but what a wonderful memory.  One you will never forget. We love the idea of a memorial garden and will consider adding that to our revised list.  Thank you so much for watching, caring and sharing. Lynn & Richard

You both are so much fun. I love this video and all the gardening theme ideas are fantastic deezie
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
Hi Deezie.  We are pleased you enjoy our video.  As mentioned to another viewer, Richard want to redo this video including titles for each theme even though he posted the list on our website. Hope you are getting ready for planting season. Thanks again for watching, caring, and sharing. Lynn & Richard

enjoyed your video Lynn and Richard thanks for sharing your garden themes I have a flower garden around my vegetable garden some of my plants the pollinators like sometimes when I am out in my garden I see them all over the place there so nice to watch them at work
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
Hi Jackie. It's amazing how much we rely on pollinators and sometimes take them for granted.  We really appreciate all the activity that started to take place at the end of February and recently put out two new bee houses.  Within minutes the activity around them was a joy to watch.  At least a half a dozen were busy finding new tubes to call home.  Amazing how quickly they found them.  Wishing you a wonderful garden. Thanks again for watching, caring, and sharing. Lynn & Richard
Lots of great idea...I loved the ABC Garden for school kids. When I was a librarian, I read a book called "Victory Garden" to our middle school classes and they were inspired by it. My daughter just helped create a Therapy Garden at her workplace. I have a Hummingbird Garden in which I specifically grow flowers to draw in Hummingbirds like flowers that are RED and TUBULAR Thank you so much for all the wonderful ideas and being my inspiration.

Thank you for your sweet compliment and support.  Always appreciated.  Richard wants to redo this video and include titles for each of the 52 garden themes. Thanks again for watching, caring, and sharing. Lynn & Richard

OH now i am embarassed for being so naughty!.....forgive me, i was a bad boy...LOL
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
Everyone has a little sassiness to offer.  Richard accuses me of being sassy all the time.  Without sassiness life would be like dipping chips without salsa.  We truly value your garden wisdom and for being part of our garden family.  But we will be keeping a close eye on you.  Thanks again for watching, caring, and sharing.

walter reeves said we had naked gardening day and pajama day gardening
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
Suppose we add a Calendar Garden in addition.  We appropriately titled our latest publication "Let's Get Dirty" playing in the garden.  Somehow I think our neighbors would object to running around naked in our garden.  Too many children.  Thanks for watching, caring, and sharing. Lynn & Richard

Love your birds ! Are they cockatiels ? I had a cockatiel years ago his name was baby when i came into they room he would say hello baby and whistle the whole Andy Griffith intro song. I really miss him. He Passed from a cold of all things. No Avery vets with in 200 miles. I have never bought another for this reason.
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
So sorry for your loss. Yes, BB is a beautiful cockatiel that feels she always has to join in on every conversation.  She is 13 years old.  We had a second one named Peepers about 10 years before we adopted BB from our humane society.  One day we found Peepers laying on the bottom of the cage.  We deeply understand the loss of a loving pet.  Hopefully our pets will find a place for us in the garden. Thanks for watching, caring, and sharing. Lynn & Richard

I would call it the "Happy Surviving Garden Theme" or "I'm Happy It Survived Theme". ;-)
WisconsinGarden (2 years ago)
Now that's one happy theme we may have to add to the list. Thanks for watching, caring, and sharing. Lynn & Richard

Great ideas! I especially love the idea of a children's garden! I'm a preschool teacher and every year I do a unit with our kids on plants and taking care of the earth. We always plant something for them to take home. This year it was green beans and they were all so thrilled when they came in one morning to see their seeds had germinated :)

Thank you for being a loving teacher.  Can't think of a higher calling.  The trouble with Richard and me is that we wanted to take all of our students home with us. Thanks for watching, caring, and sharing. Lynn & Richard
