    Great video! You are so fun to watch! I just started a garden and I’m so excited! I’ve actually created a cost analysis spreadsheet to track my garden expenses, retail cost of produce, and how much I harvest to see exactly how much I save my family in cost of produce! I’m trying to share with as many people as possible because gardening is so much fun and can save money too! I’m trying to soak up as much knowledge as I can and share what I learn with others too! Thanks for sharing!!

    Great video on Gardening. Lovely.

  13. Emma Nicholson on May 7, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    Not good to add gravel – it makes large spaces in the containers where the water gets water-logged in the soil and actually prevents drainage.

  14. Gerald Chong on May 7, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Great video. Thank you so much for the information. I am planning on making my second serious attempt at growing my own vegetables in containers, and the information you provided would help me to care properly for my plants.

    Can you do something to the soil from your garden to kill the weeds, so you can use the soil. It’s just that I have so much soil here that buying soil seems ridiculous.

    I would like to hear more about self-watering containers, which I have used successfully for several years now. They are great for tomatoes, small cabbages, salad greens, baby eggplant, small peppers, herbs.

    Hi , with the salad i am a bit confused. In many videos i watched they all say needs at least 6 hours sun per day but they also say that if exposed to sunlight it sprouts up so what is the ideal place salad should be?
