1. Martha Stewart

Not surprisingly, Martha Stewart may be the most accomplished celebrity gardener. From her books, videos, and websites dedicated to teaching others about home living, Stewart has made a living creating and maintaining a variety of gardens. And she makes good use of her knowledge. At her Cantitoe Corners home in New York, Martha Stewart has created a fully functional vegetable garden. The 90 by 150 foot garden is encased by a seven foot tall metal fence to keep large and small animals away. Within the metal fence are vegetables ranging from kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, tomatoes, pumpkins, onions, several varieties of lettuce, and potatoes. Being the queen of tips and tricks gives Martha a gardening advantage. She utilizes salt hay for mulching because it minimizes weeds and retains moisture, mustard greens are planted alongside kale, cabbage, and broccoli to trap flea beetles, and patches of hay are placed below pumpkins to prevent early rotting and bruising during growth.
