    Thanks for the tips I love interplanting. I never liked planting flowers I thought they were a waste of space but now I love them and am so excited about growing them next season!!

    Wow, thank you. I just wrote down that I need to plan out my veggie plan for this year. It looks like you use the square foot gardening theory. Yeah!!!

    I watch and follow a lot of gardening Youtube channels and I’m continually impressed with the quality and content of your channel. So much good info on a wide array of topics and you explain them all in such an easy-to-understand way. Kudos to you and thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us!!!

  12. Safiya Johnson on September 21, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    You give the best advise with so much detail. Your game of thrones voice is a plus.

  13. Shih Tzus Rule on September 21, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Thank you. I love your content, delivery, and encouragement. I noticed that The Old Farmer’s Almanac website does, too. I also noticed there were no ads before the video, during, or after providing the next video is from your channel. I follow several gardening channels and I’ve noticed of the ones I can watch regularly and actively search for, 2 are from UK, and 1 is from Australia and I don’t live in either of those countries.

  14. Deb Kincaid on September 21, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    My best planning rule? Watch & implement your videos. Always good information without a lot of chit-chat, delivered with enthusiasm and a smile. Thanks for this one, especially now.

  15. Gabrielle Chadowitz on September 21, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Hi, I love your videos and signed up to use your garden planner. I created a mini Hugelkultur garden last Summer. Do you think the garden planner can be used in my garden? I am rotating crops mounds but I have limited sun, so I placed my lettaces on area with less Sun. which does make rotation a bit more challenging. Any thoughts? Thanks

  16. SoCalledKaty on September 21, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Hello ๐Ÿ‘‹ is the Gardening Planner supporting different hardiness zones or just the UKs? ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ

    You donโ€™t usually spend a whole video flogging the garden planner ๐Ÿ™

    Very helpful video, thank you.

  26. rawfoodelectric on September 21, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Question: if I ammend my garden soil every year, do I still need to rotate crops?

    Hi, this is ixchel_lught from instagram.
    Help! My plants have some white stuff on the leafs. It looks like white powder, how do I get rid of it?

  32. Sarah McCormick on September 21, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Question for anyone who might be able to help: I had my yard treated (pest control) back in January of this year, so 7 months ago. They really loaded it all over the yard as I live in SW Florida where we have big headed ants that were burrowing into our house. They even injected the ground surrounding the perimeter of our house. They treat around the house with spray every two months. My question is, I want to do organic vegetable gardening and begin within the next month, and I plan on doing raised beds with store bought soil. Would this be a safe way to garden, is it safe enough, and how deep should I make it so there is no cross contamination with anything within the soil from the pesticides? I worry about the safety of it and nobody seems to be able to help me with this. I have even reached out to our local Ag Extension via email and have heard nothing back. Should I put any type of product down at the bottom of the raised bed to protect the soil within from the soil underneath leaching any pesticides through? Thank you for any answers you can give, anyone!

    One of my favorite things about your channel are the garden images you show us of those veg, fruit, and flowers, they are just memorizing and gorgeous!! It helps me imagine what my own space could look like following your tips!

    @growveg can’t stop binging your videos Ben. Love how you just get straight into the video with no time wasting. Thanks for all the advice!!

  40. DB on September 21, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    I would really love to know more about how to grow fruiting plants/trees in pots. I have a garden that is practically all decking but would love a fruit tree! I’d also really like to hear your thoughts on the practice of root trimming (if that’s what it’s called) to keep large plants from outgrowing pots

  41. MamaPegasus on September 21, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    I always mulch and try to keep soil covered!

  42. Najma Ali on September 21, 2022 at 7:40 pm

  44. Bessie on September 21, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    You really should be employed by schools to teach children where food comes from and the benefits of growing veggies ๐Ÿฅ—

  45. K Linzey on September 21, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Have you fixed your garden planner so that it doesn’t rely on Flash yet?

  46. Milka - Americus on September 21, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    I just got a community garden plot. I used to have one of 15m2, and now it’s 100m2. This is a great help. Thank u. Please be safe during our snowstorm Darcy.

  47. julz s on September 21, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Just wish the planner would work on my phone. I don’t have a computer and although I pay for the planner I can’t use it

    There he is!!! Yay!
