    Awesome. To water your yard or garden easily, get the Amazon’s Choice "strongest water hose 2019" (from January 23, 2019) from "greenfriendlyhome" at @t. 5 *****stars 2019 new technology product – strongest expandable garden water hose in the market! This is a great hose if you want to focus on enjoying your gardening experience, if you want to be fully relaxed and tranquil after a long day, without being distracted by a heavy, tangled, and kinked hose. You can watch the "greenfriendlyhome" videos too on YouTube

    Quick question or thought: I have two GARDENS which have gotten overgrown from lack of care and general laziness. What would you suggest I do? I have drawn up a rough floorplan for one of them which i have a certain amount of passion for but i don’t quite know where to start as the back of the garden is a mini-forest, the front of the garden has debris from a knocked down shed and another section of the garden has a woodpile with a galvanised incinerator. What would you suggest i do or start on? If you would like more details to help me, please reply for more info i may have not given you. – Nick 🙂

    "Slug hunting party" – those UK people really know how to have a good time.

  5. Ammad Laskani on May 25, 2019 at 10:19 pm

    Great video for wanna be kitchen gardens like myself. Also I found it very informative. I would like more tips around ploughing the soil and how to sow the seeds. Cheers man.

    Excellent content, very knowledgeable on gardening.  Great vocabulary and proper grammar. You can tell that you read a lot and were raised well.  Love the fact no bs and extra nonsense stories.  Good job and keep up the wonderful videos. Thanks for sharing!

    Love this! I’m just starting off a new allotment and like to see how other people are getting on. I’m a retired garden designer, so now I’m gardening for ME! 🙂

  8. Jeannie Carpenter on May 25, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    Hi lovely video i just have a question about insect netting i have just made a medium sized cloche and put Insect scaffolding netting over it . i just wondered if it would block out too much sunlight ,thanks

  18. Jon on May 25, 2019 at 10:31 pm

    how do nitrogen levels in manure compare to typical fertilizer?

  19. azeeg ismail on May 25, 2019 at 10:32 pm

    Hi there.. I live in a tropical, here in South East Asia sometimes it get super hot and sunny. My question is what is the best veggies that I can grow on my backyard?

  20. Joel on May 25, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    Hi Huw you mentioned the square foot gardening book. Which author are you recommending as a few different people have released sfg books. Cheers

  21. Kieran Daly on May 25, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    I live a plant based diet so I love all of your videos and ideas. I grow lemons. Many herbs. Tomato’s. On a balcony in Tokyo. And we have an electronic composer so everything is organic. Using a tiny space we can grow quite a bit of food for us to live on. Avocados too

  22. Jerry C on May 25, 2019 at 10:34 pm

    Sorry dude, but with the Earth entering a period of rapid cooling the way it is thanks to the new Grand solar minimum that we are heading into. You need to make a video about how to grow the food you will need to survive INSIDE, because doing it outside is going to be very difficult in a couple of years

  23. Dean Wilson on May 25, 2019 at 10:34 pm

    Not much of a video wen all you do is TALK !?

  24. Mai garden vui với thiên nhiên on May 25, 2019 at 10:36 pm

    Thank you. Great video 😍

  25. Ajay Pradhan on May 25, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    Show more, talk less. This is video, not radio.

  26. Erin Aiston on May 25, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    I want to thank you so much and tell you how appreciative I am of this video and all the others you post!!! You are by FAR the best when it comes to garden videos. Like others say, you are so incredibly detailed, which helps so much. At the end of others videos I have so many questions that usually go unanswered, however, you are so detailed I actually can’t even think of any questions. The thing I love the most is how cost-effective you are too, you let us know where you got it and for how much which is extremely helpful. I needed to buy a growing light, and Garden Answer did a video on lights and the one I thought I’d like cost about …I can’t afford that, and that defeats my purpose of wanting to grow my own food to begin with. I would absolutely love if you made a Instagram for your gardening and kitty cat. I will be your first follower!!!

    Not sure if you will be able to help me. I’m from Australia and I’ve been growing majool date seeds( I have about 6 of them in a 50cm long pot. I started around Christmas time and I germinated them inside. They have been out in the shade for the past few months. They are now about 10/15cms tall. I’m wondering if I should move them into a bigger pot. If I should move them into the sun since it’s getting a little cooler now. If you don’t know, could you point me in a direction that some one may know more about. Cheers

  28. Robin Song on May 25, 2019 at 10:40 pm

    literally plucking slugs at night!? OMG my nightmare

    I discovered your vlog last week and im stunned to find out that there is someone out there that goes as fare as me in my research of a better gardening. How or from what are you basing your lactic fermentation recipes as i found a very interesting blog and book from a french specialist but each culture has its own way of doing it so im curious to learn more. Thanks

  34. rpg metanoia on May 25, 2019 at 10:46 pm

    great vid!

  40. David Fortier on May 25, 2019 at 10:54 pm

    This is a great video Huw. I have been gardening all my life on both small and large scale from plastic containers on an apartment balcony to my uncles hobby farm of 30 arcs. This and the rest of your videos are spot on, and a great resource for me when I am helping friends and family with their gardens. For some reason, the believe the advice more coming from you. 8 ) Keep the vids coming!

  41. Maayong Aga on May 25, 2019 at 10:54 pm

    Thank you for giving me an idea.

  42. _ひらり on May 25, 2019 at 10:56 pm

    Question: what do I do after catching as many slugs as possible? I’d rather not kill them, but unleashing them somewhere else might create a problem for someone else or just allow them to come back, right?

  44. ann fieldhouse on May 25, 2019 at 11:02 pm
