What's Your Plant Personality?

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Our Sunday paper's Home/Garden section mentioned this quiz at iVillage. It's a short, simple quiz to help you determine (or confirm) your gardening style: http://www.ivillage.com/home/garden/personality/quiz/

(I was a cottage romantic, big surprise - and I have about 90% of the plants suggested, LOL!)

Philadelphia, PA(Zone 6b)

What a neat quiz..I'm a Natural Woodland type. I also have the plants listed under my type and I certainly love the woods:)

Cape May Court House, NJ(Zone 7a)

O.K., I took the quiz, I am low maintenance, (no kidding). I do have every plant on the list and more than one of each! I love the question about my dream home, I picked anywhere with a maid!! I guess thats why they say "DREAM HOME"!!! Thanks for the quiz, It was fun!!!! sue

Westbrook, ME(Zone 5a)

I was low maintenance too! ~ But... I think it's more like I'm a lousy house keeper! I'd rather be in the garden :o)

Sykesville, MD(Zone 7b)

European formal... that's an interesting quiz. It nailed it on the head for me! I have most everything on the list, too. Thanks ! ~Irene

Lorain, OH(Zone 5b)

I'm natural woodland, fun quiz, thanks for posting it.

Wentworth, SD(Zone 4a)

I'm a cottage romantic. I had a tough time answering some of the questions though because I am somewhat eclectic. It was fun. Thanks!

Missoula, MT(Zone 5a)

natural woodland here. toughest women's gloves just confirmed all else! I am always looking for the "Best" gloves that fit just so.

(Zone 9a)

I'm Natural Woodland too, and have almost all the plants they listed( I have bleeding heart and lots of columbines, hosta, and ferns). The quiz was right on the money, in my case.

Middlesbrough, United Kingdom

Cottage Romantic for me too! Thanks go_vols!

Troy, VA(Zone 7a)

Somehow I am a Desert native... I guess I must have answered some questions wrong or something.

Panama, NY(Zone 5a)

Ok, the first time, I was Cottage Romantic. Teh second time, I was Low maintainance and I thought I was headed for Natural Woodland! Mostly, I'm Eclectic - can't be labelled!

Palmyra, VA(Zone 7a)

Dave broke the quiz! haha
I must have answered a few wrong too.

Joshua Tree, CA(Zone 8b)

Im with you Dave! I was labled Tropical Jungle! I live in the Desert! Hey Dave want to trade? cute Quiz Go-Vols, I am just a hard one to pin down I guess. I would say my gardening personality is Unusual, I love anything weird and different! And I think I like the Cottage look and I like Natives. My flower bed isnt really a mess, its just not a formal bed. I am always looking for unusual colors as well. And I contrast textures, and I love varigated plants.

Efland, NC(Zone 7a)

Oh mercy...I'm a Low Maintenance, or so it says. It may be true, I just planted lamb's ear the other day so I wouldn't have to weed one of my flower beds and not necessarily cuz I like it (altho I do). I'm low maintenance for sure but sure do seem to stay entirely too busy (I even took time to wash my feet last week). Low maintenance but highly energetic in some respects...instead of watering the gardens the other day I flipped some 55 gal barrels on end and started beating out a rain dance...it worked...next day we had 2/100's of an inch of rain (er wait, did it work well enuff?). Yep, Low Maintenance, and usually by the end of the day Low To The Ground...tired, bent over like a question mark (DD kept asking me what I was looking for and did I drop something?) and more than willing to make sure the Shade under the big acorn tree feels it is truly offering a wonderful gift from Ma Nature!

Olympia, WA

tropical girl here too
but party girl? no.
pink and lime green yuck
can't stand marc anthony please no marc anthony :( does he have only one song out? and it has like one line? maybe two?
and i don't have any of the plants they mentioned although they don't sound bad, i've heard of coleus:).

all i want is the warmth and lushness of the jungle, is it too much to ask. will probably have to move to peru and build a shack. any other tropicals understand what i mean?

changed some options around and yup still tropical jungle. what can i say i miss being home.

Fort Smith, AR(Zone 7a)

Cottage Romantic here..missing the morning glories but the bugs just eat them up here. Wonder why they didn't have dahlias on the plant list?? Can't live without my dahlias.

Boonville, MO(Zone 5a)

I came out as a formal garden. There is no way! I am much more cottage or woodland, and definately more of a low-maintance. There is nothing formal about me or my garden. I'm the one who roughed up an existing raised bed and tossed in lots of various types of seeds and just going to see what pops up. Oh well, can't win em all.

Springfield, MA(Zone 6a)

i came out cottage romantic, but upon checking with the plants, i would also qualify under woodland and low maintenance. according to the plants. but then..........poppy sue i'm with you, i think the low maintenance is because i hate housework too and would much rather be in the garden, with the maid doing the housework. :-) of course i might consider being a tropical girl, with a cabana boy. :-)

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

Cottage Romantic, complete with most of the plants listed. I am getting more and more away from roses because my body's liking low-maintenance plants better and better! ;O)

Richmond Hill, GA(Zone 8b)

Another Cottage Romantic! LOL


Middle, TN(Zone 6b)

I am another cottage romantic. I am not the least bit surprised since I love cottage gardens and that is what I have. I also have almost all the plants. Thanks Go Vols for offering us the chance to take the quiz. It was fun.

Powhatan, VA(Zone 6b)

Low maintenance...I have the plants they mention and more..if it doesn't make it I don't won't buy it again.

puttyrat :)

Madison, AL(Zone 7b)

OH MY! How can a jeans and t-shirt gal be European Formal? ~Gasp~ But the description pretty much fits me, sooooooooo. LOL

That was fun. Thanks for sharing.



Bodrum, Turkey(Zone 10a)

Tropical jungle here too...I see I'm in excellent company.
