    Hello David, enjoyed your video very much. answered a lot of questions very
    straight forward and not complicated. Thanks! I was wondering where to find
    the warm weather and cool weather vegetable videos.

    My mother used to use plastic now I spends days on end picking out the
    plastic out of the soil. It can be very carconogenic. Good advise with that
    exception, however I prefer Geoff Lawton’s style and permaculture… simply
    too much plastic.

  • Applepiebetty says:

    Loved your show, but there is one thing that just doesn’t make sense to me,
    and yet all gardeners say it and that is.. “Not to plant the same thing in
    the same areas as the year before.” In the wilds this happens 100% of the
    time, even in a forever garden so why is it different for a home planted
    garden?

    Lots of negative comments on here.. if you watched it all as I have, the
    vids cut the flow, it doesnt mean follow exactly.. as an experienced indoor
    gardener this added a lot of easy wins to a toolkit.
    The main think that I think should be gathered from this is prep is key…
    ie soil prep, keep the soil right every thing else fine as long as u plan
    what your growing.

    Does any one have the links for the other two videos. Cool Weather Vega
    tables and Warm Weather Vegetables?

    I just finished watching this. When I started I was totally clueless and
    now I feel I am ready to go out and use what I learned and get some good
    results. I learned so much its wonderful and all in one great video. I
    can’t thank you enough.

    PLASTIC NO NO NO ! Will it become MULCH ? NO,NO,NO! Plastic is a bad idea
    all the way around.

  • Rajshree Varshney says:

    I understand well

  • Izolda G says:

    first put worms in your garden and then kill them by digging the soil O.O

  • Mike DeMan says:

    Great video. You covered a lot of topics and imparted a lot of information.
    I did worry a bit about those earthworms you added in, especially when you
    then used that powered tiller/rotovator to kill them 🙂
    One thing I’d like to add, if you are using pressure-treated planks around
    the raised beds, check that the chemicals used are non-toxic or you might
    poison/kill any plants near or touching the planks.
    I’m glad you mentioned sowing just the right amount of plants. Lots of
    gardeners overplant and are left with gluts of good vegetables that get
    wasted/composted. The other important topic is to sow successively, a few
    plants/seeds at regular intervals so as to keep a constant supply of
    vegetables through the growing season. And of course preserving/canning
    goods for use in the winter. I haven’t yet looked at many of your videos so
    maybe your covered those topics already.
    I’m looking forward to enjoying more of your videos. Thanks.

    Wow, thanks to this video, I have watched a lot of videos about gardening
    and this one is one of the best to start a backyard garden. It covers most
    of things you need to prepare and do before start a garden. Its basic is
    giving the right way to start a garden up to finish/harvest your own
    produce. I have a very small urban yard [a quarter of an acre] but enough
    to produce my own produce for the entire growing season. I live alone and
    this size of garden is more than enough for me for all the vegetables i
    need every season. Thanks a lot for this video.

  • id77 says:

    VERY informative! Thank you! it resolved many many many of my doubts!
    Thanks!

  • Nalini Odapalli says:

    Great video with all the information needed for anyone who wants to start
    the vegetable patch. Thank you.

  • Michael Collins says:

    I’m a beginner who has never picked up a gardening tool. Therefore, I wish
    he would have giving instructions on tilling. If he’s teaching to
    beginners, well, then teach as if a beginner knows nothing as to what
    you’re talking about or doing. Now my space is extremely small in size (70″
    x 66″) so I’m just wanting to grow vegetables & herbs for just myself.

    3 Common Garden Planning Mistakes (and how to avoid them)

  • Shaikh Rasool says:
  • Wholesome Day says:

    Some great simple tips. I always want to plant as much as possible but
    should leave more room.

  • Kevin Byrne says:

    Good advice. I know many gardeners who plant a dozen tomato plants and a
    half dozen courgette plants, and then find themselves drowning in
    vegetables at the end of the season. They struggle to find people willing
    to accept the surpluses. Plant fewer plants and space them over time so
    that you don’t end up with more vegetables than you can handle.

  • StinKyChupz says:

    oh my goosh i luv gardens oh ma goosh! <3 from korea

  • Howard Dimmock says:

    Another reason to avoid planting stuff too close is that it’s much easier
    to hoe between the rows if there’s plenty of space to get your hoe in
    there! Regular maintenance, including keeping the weeds down, can be time
    consuming, so make it easier and it will save time!

  • Adam Cooper says:

    thank you so much for this video. I made a lot of mistakes and will be able
    to now get a better growing cycle and harvest.

  • phillippe robinson says:

    Thank you for the tips. I’m just starting to learn basic gardening
    knowledge.

  • Toko H says:

    I also would like to know if this program would take my location into
    account as i am from New Zealand. This looks interesting

  • Justgivemethetruth says:

    Good rules … much better the simple-minded moronic stuff many of these
    fake gardening channels spout.

  • www.MuscadinesAndMore.com says:

  • Pedram Pete Bidhendi says:

    Good stuff. Thank you. I like to look into getting this “Garden Planner”
    software as it looks like a good & effective way for a beginner like me to
    bring “technology” into the mix without getting too fancy. Where can I get
    it, and does it have settings that take my location into account? I’m
    betting my growing season here in Atlanta, GA might be a bit different and
    longer than what you “Brits” deal with over there! 🙂
