    I have a packet of Carrot seeds.
    There are 2000 seeds in the packet.
    How many should I sow in a 10″ pot?
    Just asking.

  • Backyardsoul says:

    Wiki article on Sphagnum (peat moss) conservation; Large-scale peat
    harvesting is not sustainable as it takes thousands of years to form the
    peat “bricks” that are harvested in just a week. In particular, the
    extraction of large quantities of moss is a threat to raised bogs. Coir has
    been touted as a sustainable alternative to peat moss in growing media

    GARBAGE in it, plastic, plastic bags etc :/// so not cool, i got 3 diff
    ones and the same thing

  • Linda Casey says:

    Mine doesn’t … my worms compost everything .. I keep a cardboard on top
    of the compost heap .. it’s in a special container with a lid on it. I keep
    it outside. No smell

  • Michael Hannah says:

    I found out that in order to get the mineral rock i have to drive to tampa
    or daytona (about two hours either way. But they also told me that Florida
    soils dont need it and lowes and home depot sell only things needed for
    local soils. How much validity do you think they have john?

  • HaslarHouse says:

    I have a question: If Jimmy cracked corn and the nobody cared, then why was
    there a song written about it?

  • Michael Hannah says:

    Oh, i went to lowes today and i built my totally awesome gigantic trellis.
    The box method really worked! My trellis is about 8 or 9 feet high, im
    going to try the passion fruit on the south east side of my house,
    hopefully it will shade it. Thanks for shoring me how to build those
    things….my neighbors hate me now 🙂

  • wineandgrind says:

    What if you just want to start in a container and then transfer to the
    ground? This is my first time, so just wondering. Thanks!

  • BobS4c4mano says:

  • alexasite says:

    I am still waiting for the last frost so i could put my plants outside..
    and plant more..

  • blisflvolcanodweller says:

    Another thing to consider: does your local green waste processing center
    mix in potentially contaminated soil for “custom blends”, for example, from
    a local military base that might have radioactive contamination? I wouldn’t
    expect a truthful/knowledgeable answer from them to that question. Just
    another reason to make your own compost at home.

    garden pro in delaware. they sell bags of humus and manure from lowes, for

  • srystr77 says:

    Thanks John, I llive in an area were composte is very limited. I usually
    buy my soil from lowes and walmart.

  • MyLittleGreenThumb says:

    Go to your nearest farm buy one year old “compost” which is aged cow
    manure. I pay 60 dollars for a heaping pick up truck load.

  • RedSoxBowHunter says:

    John, this will be my first attempt at a garden. I live in South-east
    Massachusetts and we have a compost pile that has been in the back yard
    since I was a kid. My question is, would the soil under the leaves,
    pine-needles, and branches be a good idea for my raised bed?

  • martysgarden says:

  • Catfishchic Waits says:

    Hello, John, great show! I have a question. What will happen now that I
    have my container garden planted with Miracle Grow Gardening Soil? I went
    to Walmart a few weeks back and asked the lady in the Garden Dept. what
    soil to use for vegetables in containers. She told me Gardening Soil is
    what was needed for the job. Now, I am learning that it is not good to use
    it in containers. What will happen and how to fix it? Thanks for your
    advice, if you can offer any. Catfishchic

  • jffrywad says:

    rut ro… so don’t use this? it wont work? If you did buy it do you have to
    mix it with other things? peet ? manure?

  • Colin Miller says:

    plants love it, especially tomatoes

  • mysciencenow says:

  • FreedomFox1 says:

    Miracle Gro? You shouldn’t even think about gardening until you’ve
    composted your own poo for at least ten years!
