    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

    Interesting tips and ideas, I enjoy watching all of your video, improve my self more on gardening and promoting green world. Wish you all the best.

    How do you keep birds, deers, etc from eating your food? We are near the woods and have tried (with varying success) cages, wire, peppers and music (most effective). But I don’t have the heart to destroy a squirrel or shoot a deer so how do you keep them (and the birds) from eating berries or leaves?

    One thing missing from all these videos about gardening is picking, preparing and eating the food! After all, that’s the main reason we grow it in the first place but I cannot recall one video where someone filmed the process from plant to stomach.

    While literal shit seems to work well in gardens, I don’t want it in my food. While I’ll get a lot of hate for saying so, manure vegetables are not organic or valuable in my book. You guys are literally eating shit, tomatoes taste like the dirt they grow from.

  10. Gaynor Witchard on September 3, 2018 at 11:49 pm

    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! 🙂

  11. Charles Davis on September 3, 2018 at 11:51 pm

    Very informative video planting presentation of gardening greens and vegetables.

  12. Robin Song on September 3, 2018 at 11:51 pm

    literally plucking slugs at night!? OMG my nightmare

  13. Dean Wilson on September 3, 2018 at 11:52 pm

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

  14. Daizy Garg on September 3, 2018 at 11:52 pm

    Very nice information

  15. Erika Nicole on September 3, 2018 at 11:53 pm

    Your so right about succession planting! I find myself getting carried away sometimes but other times I under plant but the joys of beginner gardening (:

  16. ann fieldhouse on September 3, 2018 at 11:54 pm

    what an exceptional young man. Thankyou for your great tips! Ann x
    what about no dig gardening? Charles Dowding gave a talk locally and it was very inspiring

  17. Habibah Crafts on September 3, 2018 at 11:56 pm

    Thank you for sharing these tips, the video was very informative and easy to understand for newbies like us

  18. ILHEM ACHOUR BOUAKEZ on September 3, 2018 at 11:58 pm

  19. kl ro on September 4, 2018 at 12:00 am

    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!

  20. christophe lecoeur on September 4, 2018 at 12:00 am

    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

  21. Tran Anni on September 4, 2018 at 12:03 am

    Wish to have a big land like your, then i can plant more 🌾🌱🥦🌽🥕🍆🍋🍊🍐

  22. Roger Plessen on September 4, 2018 at 12:03 am

    I notice the grass between beds…do you mow it for grass clippimgs for compost?

  23. David Fortier on September 4, 2018 at 12:04 am

    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!

    *I have never seen a program this powerful in my life ever since I came across it. The program works really great and ever since then, I haven’t had any problem at all with my landscaping anywhere round my home. Now people do ask me the secret which I relate to them   [Details Here==**https://plus.google.com/u/1/110086446704524205338/posts/HrzGjo6aFKc** ] . Now I am using this medium to relate this program to you too.*

  28. frieza on September 4, 2018 at 12:09 am

    im using my garden scraps to feed my rabbits and chickens

  29. Jerry C on September 4, 2018 at 12:10 am

    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

  30. Catalin Ciprian on September 4, 2018 at 12:10 am

    Very nice ,useful

  31. Ammad Laskani on September 4, 2018 at 12:11 am

    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.

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

    if you want vitiman c grow a blue spruce tree

  38. Brooks Anderson on September 4, 2018 at 12:18 am

    Love your INFORMATION DENSE video. They are uncomon on YouTube. I like music, doggies, kitties, jokes, your family history, etc, but, takes notes frrom this guy and stick to the topic!

  39. Teresa Brooker on September 4, 2018 at 12:19 am

    I love the fact that there is none of that annoying intro- music, it is just straight down to business. You are a fast talker and that is a lot of information to take in – so I’ll just have to watch it again – that is a pleasure, not a problem. Question though, following a slug party – what do you do with the slugs? Your enthusiasm is infectious – I am probably 3 times your age and hoping to move house and all I keep thinking about is what I might do in the small garden – I presently have 1 1/2 acres and found it overwhelming yet the thought of the new smaller garden feel s me with ideas. I probably ought to take a closer look at the house but I consider the garden far more important.

  40. Erin Aiston on September 4, 2018 at 12:21 am

    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!!!

    Hi Huw! Since you grow in raised beds do you use untreated or treated wood? I use untreated wood but my beds only last around 3 seasons before I have to replace the wood. How long does your’s last before you have to replace the beds? Thanks! Rick

  42. T. Godemiche on September 4, 2018 at 12:22 am

    Thanks for all the videos! We were 100% self sustainable this summer, eating from the garden, foraging, and fishing!

  43. Mauli Ako on September 4, 2018 at 12:24 am

    Thank you for giving me an idea.

  44. Gigi Higgins on September 4, 2018 at 12:26 am

    Thank you!!!! So helpful 😁

  45. Kieran Daly on September 4, 2018 at 12:27 am

    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

  46. h sandgren on September 4, 2018 at 12:27 am

    Thank you for many great videos

  47. CraftCrafted on September 4, 2018 at 12:28 am

    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 🙂
