    So very helpful/informative – thank you so much

  2. JoAnn Bayne on August 28, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    I only garden on my deck – we just ordered some raised bed planters – they are on legs so are almost the height of a kitchen table – so I can work in the new boxes next year. I grew tomatoes and cucumbers in pots on the deck (can’t garden in the ground because of deer herds that come through our yard and I’m 74 and partially disabled from polio as a child) but yet you inspired me to take up gardening again this year and we are so happy with our little vegetable pots. I’ve always grown flowers – but had given up on vegetables. Next year, again inspired by you, I will have tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, chives and maybe even a few onions in with the flowers in the new planters. Thank you for your videos – your voice and style are so calming and we need that so much these days.

  3. Simplify Gardening on August 28, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    Great job liz. Garden looks fine after the storm we had. another great video

  4. Sandrine Fresne on August 28, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Thank you 😊 Is it too late for swede ? Pak choi, snowball turnips , winter lettuces are in but I suspect it’ll do better if protected by fleece later on or Akins of tunnel.

  5. Lynn Rushton on August 28, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Thanks Liz…….I’m having a slug war just now 😩 and I’m losing!

  6. Lorraine Owen on August 28, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Great tips for sowing, thanks Liz.. 😀

  7. Foxglove on August 28, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    I could do with some advice,. I have 11 raised planter trugs in my tiny patio, which I tried to grow veg this year,, it was an absolute disaster.. I was inundated with pests.l leaf miner, aphids, tomato blight, cabbage fly, which put me off as I’m disabled and it became too much of a fight.. is it possible to use the same soil that is in the planters, and is it worth trying to grow stuff this winter, or do I give up the ghost, ? Not sure if the pests and diseases will remain,. The leaf miner really put me off leafy greens, which is a shame as I eat a lot of leafy veg.

  8. WineBerry Farm on August 28, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Beautiful video as always! Your cabbage looked so delicious, I grew my first cabbage under cloth this year (thanks to your advice) who knew fresh cabbage could taste so good! Thanks Liz!

  9. Mark Francis on August 28, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Thanks for info Liz, another great video👍👍

    I love your garden, I have one also. Thanks for the tips,

  12. Çiçek Kılıç on August 28, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Hi Liz, how do you winter over the artichokes behind you? Some seem to be dried, would they live through winter? I have a similar dried looking artichoke, I wonder what should I do with them?

  13. Steven Dowden on August 28, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    enjoyable video had a lot of blight this year toms and spuds had it

  14. Pierette Turner on August 28, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Thank you Liz, always full of good advice and information and love seeing your garden as it looks like a,real garden!!Can you give advice on making or obtaining suitable protection for cabbages, are your ones home made they look really good with great accessibility, many thanks….

  15. Emma Story on August 28, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Love watching these seed videos! So useful, especially at this time of year! 😊

  16. Angela Davies on August 28, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    I’m planning on sowing/planting some potato seeds this weekend. Once they have finished flowering, can I leave them in the ground until I’m ready for them? (Providing of course they are not affected by blight or frost?)

  17. Donna Stevens on August 28, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    Liz, can you tell me, if I buy ‘normal’ non-organic seed, grow the crop organically, and then collect seed … is the resulting seed now organic, or not?

  18. Deborah Zamora on August 28, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Hi Liz, I just want to say how good you are looking. And great choice of color to wear in the garden, not only does it compliment the plants, but it lets you look very healthy and rosy.

  19. Skinkies Dinkies on August 28, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    Wait so would I plant cabbage/broccoli seedlings in september/october?
    I’m doing broccoli, Brussels, and cabbage, along with spinach, plan on transplanting late October to over winter

  20. Ali D on August 28, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    Oh Liz how could you make a better video these are just a joy to watch 🇨🇦🥕🥬🙏👍🌶☮️

  21. Elegant Sufficiency on August 28, 2020 at 10:41 pm

    Just what I needed to hear, thank you. I’ll be playing this back and taking notes tomorrow, ready to buy more seed. Just brilliant.

  22. Dan Reay on August 28, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Thank you Liz, watch your channel all the time, really useful information.

  23. Oblivion Guard on August 28, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    is elephant garlic good to sow in september?

  24. Nicole Ersser on August 28, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Love your monthly seed information, as a new veg gardener I’ve found it so helpful & reassuring I’m heading in the right direction

    In Australia so not even the same season but I love watching your garden year round. Green happiness!

  27. Patrick Meehan on August 28, 2020 at 10:48 pm

    Thank you Liz for sharing that informative video on September sowing

  28. My Bangla Garden Birmingham on August 28, 2020 at 10:51 pm

    Great advice and hope more and more people take up gardening. I’ve had the best gardening season ever and want to take up winter gardening this year.

  29. Growing in the Country on August 28, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    Nice! Always good to have a few fresh ideas at this time of the year. I recently sowed some daikon radishes, a first for me. Supposed to be quite mustardy I’ll give your horseradish type idea a go with those, I think! 🙂.

  30. Jennifer Teacher on August 28, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Liz that is the most GORGEOUS Savoy cabbage I have ever seen! And the size of it! I wish I was there I would buy it off of you and make at least 3 dishes out of it! I had to collect my jaw off of the floor after seeing that, and I now have cabbage envy! I love cabbage, but the Savoy is the most beautiful!

  31. KLW on August 28, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Your videos are superb. They don’t need improving🌷

  32. Mark Hitchman on August 28, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    Great video Liz, really helpful for me who is a 1st year allotmenteer. I’ve ordered some of the veg seeds that you recommend and will now be looking forward to continue growing during the colder months. Thanks. 🙂

  33. Missouri Girl on August 28, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    Wonderful suggestions Liz. Your garden is beautiful

  34. Jen's Allotment Adventures on August 28, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    Hi Liz, I got a lot of catching up to do so it great to have some ideas for autumn/winter. Jen

  35. Anne Lyle on August 28, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    I’m relieved to know I’m not too late to grow some winter greens – I’m a bit behind on my garden plans this year, and the UK heatwave followed by torrential rain hasn’t helped!

  36. Sam JB on August 28, 2020 at 11:03 pm

    Expat Brit here in California, I can’t do without your videos.

  37. Anna Mitchell on August 28, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    No turnips or radishes for us this year, they all bolted, twice.

  38. Eliop on August 28, 2020 at 11:07 pm

    great tip grating radishes! I was preserving mooli in vinegar, but will try this, too. I have way too many mooli and too much kimchi and preserves now. Thanks!

  39. Tom Tom on August 28, 2020 at 11:08 pm

    You really are inspiring, I live in the Midlands so I can’t always overwinter some veg however, you make me want to have a go. Thanks so much, gardening is a help with depression.

  40. Kevin Godbolt on August 28, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Thanks for the info. Your garden looks great.

  41. Anita on August 28, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Thank you for another excellent and informative video. Only 46 days till our (potentially) first frost here in US zone 5/6a and the temperature is only now starting to drop into the high 20s C. The summer crops are still going strong and I am scrambling to find space for my fall/winter crops. Direct sowing mostly is not an option so lots of seedlings going inside under grow lights, waiting for some cooler weather to plant them out. I love your gardening style and all the interplanting.

  42. Julian Kuni - Urban Gardening on August 28, 2020 at 11:09 pm

    Thanks liz! Amazing tips. It doesn’t help much in South Africa because we have the opposite climate (bar a little warmer). This will definitely come in handy in March next year! Hope you’re all keeping safe!


  43. Sobenyree KS on August 28, 2020 at 11:10 pm

    Thank you for the information! I didn’t realize how warm the southern UK is. Zone 8 is a hot state zone.

  44. Louise Brighton on August 28, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Hi Liz, do you have any recommendations for potato varieties to be sown around now?

  45. Half Century Farm on August 28, 2020 at 11:11 pm


  46. Willow Grove on August 28, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Thanks for this video Liz – its given me the inspiration to keep going over the winter and grow some kale, winter lettuce and perhaps some spuds for Christmas! 😊👍

  47. Ruth Jacombs on August 28, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Great videos, Thankyou x

  48. Maria Gillinson on August 28, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    Love your videos! Can you tell me what do you feed your plants or how do you amend the soil. I grew an Italian variety of squash and they are just wilting before they grow, I’m very disappointed!

  49. Rebecca Jo Steelman on August 28, 2020 at 11:14 pm

    Hi Liz, lots of love to you. Garden work is ongoing year round ~ the never-ending story as it were 😉

  50. Lynn Purfield on August 28, 2020 at 11:16 pm

    Well Liz, this was excellent. I have already started turnip, hoping the flea beetle won’t be just as active. You have enthused me to start some spinach outside as the only success I get is from perpetal spinach. I keep sowing radish…..argh, why is it difficult for me? Just sown the forth lot. Also keep doing successional sowings of cos lettuce which have only worked out well once this year.
    I love to sow micro crops now and they include a good ampunt of those you mention for using for stir frying. I got lots left in spring to plant out or put into the cool and shady greenhouse. Keep attempting potaoes for autumn pulling……never a big crop but always a joy to find in December .
    Thank you Liz
    Looking forward to growing the kale and onions.
