Can you guess what decade these vintage gardening ads are from?

”You got 4 out of 12” —Which is just TERRIBLE FOR ME!! —Were you able to weed out the wrong answers on this quiz? —NO!! —I got 2, 5, 6, and 10 correct.

There’s no way anyone could have done anything but guess at these questions.

I might have recognized more if they had canary poop on them.

Ya, I thought that couch was from the 70’s.
A great clue is to check out the hair styles and clothes!

I guessed the 70s also.


WRONG! The sofa pictured was available in the early 1970s, we had one!! And from Sears!
The Flymo was also available in the later 1970s. MeTV — you need to have experienced quiz makers on staff!

Clearly a late 1960s early 1970s couch. Also easily researchable. The Where America Shops…. Campaign ran in the 1970s. The accompanying thin, serif logo with wider letters was the late 60s thru 1980 when they switched to the tan bags. Also. Dayna below this post got a 9/10 not a 10/10. Being as wrong as the teacher doesn’t make you right.

They were big in the 80’s also my mom still has hers.

Thanks!! I knew I saw couches like that in the 70’s – and was sure they stopped using that fabric by the 80’s!


Great score!!!
But, weren’t there 12 questions????

Yes, there were 12 questions….

Guess I don’t have a green thumb, only 9/12.

7/12 I was doing good, but then missed the last 4.

I never paid much attention to gardening ads. But I did earn $1.50 per lawn mowed back in the 1960’s. Sometimes paid in Franklin half dollars. Remember those?

I remember them but haven’t seen one in years.

Yeah…this divorced lady paid me in those…jungled in my pocket felt like I was really somebody. Lol. The things u remember.

I got a Kennedy half dollar as change at the local hardware store. Bought something at another store and gave it to the cashier as payment and she had no idea what it was. Had to tell her it’s a half dollar and she still acted like she wasn’t sure it was real.

I missed five that time!

Can I tell what decade these ads are from? Let’s just say no and leave it there…

Good answer.

LoL, good one.

8/12 I feel like a bloomin’ idiot.


4/12 UGH! LOL


8/12, considering all the yard work I have done in the past, should have done better.

5/12. I never do well on these ad quizzes.

9/12. Missed 9, 11 and 12. Guess the quiz kind of grows on you.🌿🍀🍃🌻
