    What sort of weeds simple β€œscrape out”? Certainly not the weeds in my area!

  7. Yvonne Houston on June 5, 2019 at 1:35 am

    Katherine Crouch, BBC Gardener of the Decade! My jaw dropped to see her do that old school style of bed prepping. Fantastic and you can see why she earned the title. Also a lovely planting, never mind the camera work.

    Thank you so much for slowly printing the plant names alongside the corresponding picture of the plant – Sooo helpful and the first time I’ve seen that done. Brilliant πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸŒ± thankyou

    Hi! Does this garden also work for autumn and winter?

  14. chumleyok on June 5, 2019 at 1:45 am

    BBC gardener of the… decade. She tries to keep a straight face

  15. Bertha Butt on June 5, 2019 at 1:48 am

    What zone are you in?

  16. Roger Keulen on June 5, 2019 at 1:48 am

    Compost from a small plastic bag ? Looks like the owner of the hous doesn’t have a compost heap.

  17. Susan M on June 5, 2019 at 1:48 am

    Excellent video. The best bit for me was near the end when you listed the plants’ names using fly out labels that remain long enough for the viewer to jot down a shopping list.

  18. Katharine Davis on June 5, 2019 at 1:50 am

    It does look good ! K

  19. buffalobillbuffalove on June 5, 2019 at 1:50 am

    0:00 …and…start walking…look natural…fail.

  20. Katharine Davis on June 5, 2019 at 1:51 am

    You havent told us what those plants are and its dufficult to see to identify. K

  21. John JohnG on June 5, 2019 at 1:51 am

    You did a spectacular job! I’ve watched many landscaping videos. This is the best one yet! 😊

  22. R R on June 5, 2019 at 1:51 am

    Wow this was a great video. I’m ready to start gardening. Thank you

  23. Thurston Thornclift on June 5, 2019 at 1:54 am

    You’re hired!

  24. Thoai Anh Dinh on June 5, 2019 at 1:55 am

    the end of the clip there was quite a bit of sun. Will these plants do well in complete shade? (say the spot where tall building cover all the sun? Bright outdoor area but no sun at all

  25. Beverly Martin on June 5, 2019 at 1:55 am

    I wish you were my neighbor! You are inspiring! Lovely garden..

  26. L4sleeko on June 5, 2019 at 1:55 am

    Oh wow, looks beautiful. Trying one of these shade gardens myself. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘Œ

  27. Guy Alter on June 5, 2019 at 1:57 am

    great video

  28. Michele Bolitho on June 5, 2019 at 1:57 am

    What is the espaliered shrub please Katherine? Here in Oz I’d like to grow one on a south-facing wall. Thanks for all the good suggestions.

  29. Shirley Senkler on June 5, 2019 at 1:57 am

    It is amazing how fast they will settle in and grow, I live in the US(Minnesota) dug a new bed in my yard and in a few weeks several hostas were blooming. Had no flower stalks when put in.

  30. Red Devil9 on June 5, 2019 at 1:57 am

    Thank you.

  31. Kathryn Davis on June 5, 2019 at 2:02 am

    Hey! My maiden name is CROUCH! πŸ˜‰ Are we related? πŸ˜‰ Kathryn Crouch (now Davis)

  32. Taz 74 on June 5, 2019 at 2:02 am

    Excellent work..hope you can help I’ve done the same but using bark…do I lay the plants first or bark first? I’ve also used weed fabric.

  33. Kay Wallace on June 5, 2019 at 2:02 am

    Super

  34. Zeljko Trifunovic on June 5, 2019 at 2:04 am

    what if ……..
    you could have used thick layer of mulching first add compost ?

  35. Katharine Davis on June 5, 2019 at 2:04 am

    What on earth are they. The grey leaved ones in particular cant be seen ! K

  36. maria mahr on June 5, 2019 at 2:07 am

    Lovely

  37. W01Fernandez on June 5, 2019 at 2:07 am

    HEHEHEHE SHE SAID "MOIST"

  38. May Ibrahim on June 5, 2019 at 2:07 am

    informative video, nice job..may I please have
    a list of the plants

  39. Bedlamartist on June 5, 2019 at 2:10 am

    Excellent film. I cannot find the list of the plants used. Would be useful.

  40. Anthony Coppola on June 5, 2019 at 2:11 am

    It is so bizarre to see a woman doing hard labor . . . God bless her.

  41. David Ian Go on June 5, 2019 at 2:12 am

    I love using my Dutch hoe

  42. Ivy Mossgarden on June 5, 2019 at 2:13 am

    You told me more about the soil than which are good shade plants. I was curious about the ground cover or other good ground covers for shady damp places. You assume we know these things. If we did we wouldn’t need to watch. Vaguery is unhelpful.

  43. Tim Kreamer on June 5, 2019 at 2:14 am

    Outstanding results

  44. Nathan Dean on June 5, 2019 at 2:15 am

    Thank you very much on what to plants But I need the names of the plants

  45. David on June 5, 2019 at 2:17 am

    No deer to worry about.

  46. Sh Harv on June 5, 2019 at 2:18 am

    You are an angel and this video is heaven sent, I haven’t a scooby when it comes to gardening but I’m keen to start 😬 been on the hunt for something simple and straight forward to help me understand, thank you πŸ™‚

  47. RE ABERILLA on June 5, 2019 at 2:20 am

    It’s just a corner full of "BUSHES"!!! It’s not that it’s a "rock garden", with ‘carefully chosen" – plants!!!duhhhhhhhhhhhh

  48. First Last on June 5, 2019 at 2:25 am

    i bet she can give one hell of a hand job

  49. Perihan Gok Atakent on June 5, 2019 at 2:26 am

  50. Paul Gwalion on June 5, 2019 at 2:27 am
