Hello, my name is Bess. I recently joined this community in hopes of meeting other gardeners and maybe getting a little help. I recently moved to the twin cities area (IE Minnesota). I live in a fourplex so I really don't have a yard. I do however want to have an herb garden. Right now I'm thinking of buying some window boxes or just some regular potted herbs and starting from there. Since they'll be inside all year round I'm thinking the only major issue I might have is if I forget to water or if they aren't getting enough sun. As is, right now all we have have is a little Gloxinia we bought from the grocery store near by. I did a little research on it having never had one before. For what I read I figure I need to treat it like an African Violet but I'm not completely sure.

Does anyone here have experience with Gloxinias?
What do you do with the dead flowers? Do you cut them? Do they bulb up?

It had two blooms when we bought it but they fell off today when I was watering but left the stem and the stamen. I left it as is not sure if it will bulb or not.

Also, has anyone done the herb garden or any kind of indoor gardening like I want to do? any advice would be welcome. Thanks a lot ahead of time and I look forward to reading about all of your experiences!

Hey Bess...

I wanted to let you know that I started a new community yesterday for gardening called quietsprout. I'm trying to get a good, solid community going where the posts are regular, informative, and fun, and where there are enough active members to actually respond to postings. A lot of the gardening groups are pretty sparsely populated and don't have many regular posters. I'm working on getting more members, but right now there are just two of us. If you're interested, you should join and repost this. :)
