    Well I did find out that the bhuts are hot just looking at them. I liked
    the juice of just one pepper that was broken open and I can’t begin to
    explain how hot it was . Perhaps I won’t do any tasting, only growing from
    now on. I added this video to my favorites.

    Do you spray the plants with aspirin and Epsom salt, or add it to the soil?

    Your videos are helping me start my little in house garden. I have just
    started with sawing the seeds in little cups. I live in Japan and cant read
    Japanese so just bought seeds judging the size of tomatoes shown on the
    picture so now here I need your help. I have chosen a cherry tomato type
    and other medium type. I need tips on how frequently should I water them
    after I see the plant coming out of the soil and second question how many
    plants can I add in my 62 * 30 cms container. Thanks for making sch
    informative videos.

    Your tomatoes look so nice. So many tomatoes in one pot is very very nice.

  • Charlie Johnson says:

    Well done and informative video. The only disagreement I have is your
    statement that you should not recycle the potting soil. I am not sure why
    you feel that recycling of soil is a bad thing to do. I have been using the
    same potting soil for 6 years and have not experienced any negative
    effects. Most commercial potting soils have little or no NPK value and the
    gardener must incorporate the fertilizer on a regular basis. I have never
    had a problem with diseases either and that is why I question you on not
    recycling. I mix my potting soil with well composted horse manure acquired
    from a stable and find that by doing so I am supplying many of the trace
    elements not found in straight commercial potting soil and commercial
    fertilizers. Whatever you are doing certainly produces a nice crop.

    Hi i have a question about tomato plants
    I am growing some san marzano tomato plants in pots and i started 3-4 weeks
    ago. Now the plants are about 8-10 cm so i am wondering at this stage how
    should i look after them.
    Are they ok to be at direct sunlight for 6-8 hours per day or this is too
    much considering the sun here is quite hot specially around midle day .
    Also how frequently should i water them?
    Thank you

  • Susie Arviso says:

    Thank you for the video! Do you just throw some epsom salt in the soil?

    Very nice, was that corn you are growing in a container? I am growing a few
    corns in a container this year to see how well they do.

  • Ken Jain says:

    gardening last week from your YT channel. Can you please have a look and
    respond? It was about Falsa/Phalsa berry/Miracle Fruit. Thanks!
