Want to maximize your garden's potential? Feel like your green thumb has turned a bit brown?

Maybe we can help! We're looking for young, fun, articulate and energetic homeowners to appear as guests on HGTV's Gardening by the Yard with Paul James. We'll send Paul to your home to get down and dirty and help you get to the root and fix your gardening problems. Please note that this is not a landscape makeover show, rather a show that deals with specific gardening problems or questions Paul can lend his expertise to.

If interested, please e-mail with a description of you, your gardening dilemma and contact information. Digital photos of you and your garden are required for consideration.

Please send DVD or VHS tapes to:

RE: Got a gardening problem?

Hi Lauren

I built a series of raised cedar beds last year. I grow 50+ varieties of vegetables. I have a host of issues on an ongoing basis. Right now my cold weather varieties such as broccoli are turning purple, my tomato seedlings are too tall for my inside grow lights but the weather is too cold to plant them outside yet, and I'm not sure how best to keep the deer out. Last year I used a 7 foot deer fence with T-posts and the deer jumped right over it.

I think my garden would be ideal for either a one time or an ongoing series of features. You could follow the progress of the garden as well as dealve into the common problems of a rank amateur gardener.

It's pouring here today but I'll send pics in the next day or so.

Love the show, and I watch it all the time now that there are two TVs downstairs. I'll send pictures shortly.

RE: Got a gardening problem?

I have a Artemisia "Powis Castle" - I can't find anyone that knows anything about it - I would like to thin out my plant but do not want to kill it. Would like to share clippings from it if it can be done - Please help

RE: Got a gardening problem?

Do you have "The Well-Tended Perennial Garden" by Tracy DiSabato-Aust? She has a section about Powis Castle artemisia which answers your questions but it's too long for me to copy it here for you. Maybe your library has a copy.
