    I hope I get an answer from you, as I’m new with this and have been enjoying ur videos!
    my question :
    out of 7 plants I planted on 9/23, only 1 has sprouted,the chard. the zucchini plant I transplanted seems ok, but the others I’m not sure they are draining well. should I just start over and replant but this time add petite and peet moss? I use Nature’s Care organic for raised beds, but they are all in container.
    thanks and God bless

    I didn’t know the gravel was a myth. I’ve got gravel in a lot of my containers. I did well with and without gravel. I think I will leave it out in future buckets. I will still leave it my big 8 inch deep trays. thanks for a great video!.

    Thanks for sharing. I grow flowers in containers and hanging flowers mostly, such as Petunias, Marigolds you know just the annual flowers. How can I reuse these potting mix when the season is over?

    Thank you. I love your videos. I just started gardening a couple of months ago, and killed everything I planted due to over watering. I just replanted some vegetables, and when I through out the old soil, it stunk and was very wet. 🙁 Do you have watering advice for people that are growing in pots on an upstairs patio, and have no access to a hose for drip watering? Thanks again. 🙂

    I have watched several of your videos. I like the fact that they’re different than everyone else’s, from seedlings to harvest.

    One thing I do differently from what you mentioned in this video is that I don’t toss out my potting mix. I throw it in the compost bin or amend it and dump it in the raised beds.

    No, no, NO!!!
    Empty the used soil in a wheelbarrow or tote. Then refertilize it! You can use natural fertilizer or compost. It’s a complete waste to throw it away.

    Thanks for the tips. Perlite or vermiculite is a must for sure.

    Thank you for this video. I have always done my pots the way of my family… which does not follow anything you have put in this video. 😀 I’m hoping that my pots this year will be gorgeous as I will do them following your method. In particular, it will be nice to not be hunting around the garden for suitable stones to put in the bottom of the pot!!! 😉 Thank you so much for this. Blessings.

    Hi, is there a specific reason why you are using traditional plastic pots ? Wouldn’t a colander, fabric pot, large net pot or a pond basket be much better in terms of drainage, root aeration and also give the extra benefit of air-pruning, leading to denser roots and higher yields ?

    You have a great channel here. Found your channel now, so better late than never. I was looking for potting tips until day before however, just went ahead and potted my seeds and plants. Now fingers crossed. How often you suggest I water pots with seeds? Could you please make a video on how to use vegetables/seeds from vegetables at home such as Okra, green chillies, etc. to pot from basics. Can they be used fresh or should be dried before potting, etc. Thanks, Chitra.

    Nice video….

  30. Larry022 on October 2, 2019 at 4:28 am

    I would like to know what type of watering system do you have and the type of nozzles you use.  I have the same type of containers as you and also i use grow bags.  I just received (2) 40 gallon rain catchment barrels.  I will be in good shape for next year.  This year was a very good learning year for me even with the growing experience that i have.
