    I want to start growing vegetables in my garden. Great tips! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

  3. Sandia Martin on March 23, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Good tips. I’ve also heard fragrant soap hanging in nylons keep deer away and lightly crumbled egg shells keeps slugs away. Thanks.

  4. ADI LIVE on March 23, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Using empty egg shell for sprouting beans and peas are great too…one can simply transfer as such and the calcium in the egg shell adds to the nutritIve value of the soil.

    great tips.

    My 2 cents / tip: Instead of planting spring onions and garlic in one area, I tend to spread them out in amongst other plants, or place single-rows between other plants. Supposedly, the chemicals given off my the onion/garlic family are a deterrent to aphids and other pests.

    2:34 love the channel super good tips but a tray of water works fine too…

    Guttering works better with ends fixed on them

    Isopropyl alcohol will remove permanent marker ("Sharpie") from plastic plant stakes.

  12. NRG Ltwrkr on March 23, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    These were some great hacks. I am going to mark my garden hoe handle, and I already cut up a plastic bottle for my tomatoes. Love the soaking peas and then putting them in toilet paper rolls! Thank you! Here’s one: I could never get the hang of composting. Then, one day, my neighbor lady with the beautiful garden suggested this: Once a day, take your veggie and herb trimmings, egg shells and tea and/or coffee grounds from the day and put them into a blender – fill with water and blenderize. Pour this mixture over your garden. Great for the soil and the plants love it. No more need to compost. Has worked for me ever since and I have never "burned" a plant from doing it this way.

  13. Penelope Hammerton on March 23, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Great hacks, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Carol Leach on March 23, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    can anyone recommend a garden planning software??

  15. Rhoman Mason on March 23, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Grow potatoes and carrots in hanging buckets to keep carrot fly and slugs n snails away from your growing veg ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ

    Great video…

    dude’s kinda creepy though.

  17. Trinmulin9 on March 23, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you for the gardening tips. But, never boil your vegetable you want to eat. You wash out all the nutrients. Cook them slowly in butter or just steam them!

  18. Sevak Kirakosyan on March 23, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Nice vid. Thanks.

    My favorite hack is to use the cardboard egg containers to start seedlings. Then cut them apart and plant it still in the cardboard.

  21. Gabriel Meece on March 23, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I feel like this one should be included

  22. tackless on March 23, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I have a tip to share with everyone. Years ago I had a boat on the Eastern shore of Maryland and there I met the oldest working Waterman on the bay. At the time mr. Johnny was 93 years old. He had a very large garden right near Remington Farms who specialized in food plots to raise deer for the hunter customers. Of course in this area are rabbits and everything else. I asked mr. Johnny don’t you have problems with the animals and he said no look at that pole in the center of my garden. On that pole he had a radio tuned to a talk show on a timer covered with a 5 gallon bucket . Mr. Johnny explain to me if you just play music The Critters will get used to that but they will never come near two people talkin in the middle of a field. I live in the wild Open Country and I have been using mr. Johnny’s trick for many years now and believe me it works. And I mean perfectly. Good luck. T

  23. Yo Drop on March 23, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    ah yes. i really need to label my sage as i get it confused with my tomato plants.

  24. Chantej Singh Bedi on March 23, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Use a paint brush to remove aphids, it works well.

  25. Joe Joe on March 23, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Hi, I have looked for a garden planning program an have had no luck. Any suggestion are appreciated. Thanks

  26. Gillenz Fluff on March 23, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    1 liter of water a tablespoon of vegetable oil and a few drips of washing up liquid blended with a soup wand or blender and use in a spray bottle for aphids spidermite caterpillars it will kill all insects so don’t spray beneficial insects, some plants are sensitive to it so it’s best to wash it off with water after a few minutes.

    At the first glance thought he waa tom felton

  28. Matthew Cunningham on March 23, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Very clever thanks

  29. LoraLee DaisyG on March 23, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Take the label off a plastic soda bottle, cut the bottom 1/3 of it off and put it over the seeds. This acts as a mini green house and helps keep them moist.

  30. Deb Fryer on March 23, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Thanks for this and the great tips on using veg and washing up water. Here in Yuma Arizona this video will be a great reference as I begin my gardening journey this autumn. ๐ŸŒด

  31. Pat Pathinayake on March 23, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Thank you so much. Absolutely delighted to listen and absorb data. Please, may I know what to plant in September, October & November in the UK? Thank you.

  32. Mary Watkins on March 23, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    2:16 The water reservoirs work well. I have also used this method to add compost tea and fish emulsion to my tomato plants.

  33. Monica Newkirk on March 23, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    You can use the absorbing material from a clean diaper in your soul to keep it hydrated. They hold a lot of water which will be released when the soil is too dry and absorb extra water when it rains.

    When I got tired of moving soil from the compost pile to the garden plot I started digging holes in the lousy soil where I wanted good soil later. I’d fill the hole with kitchen waste, manure, lawn clippings etc and cover with dirt as I dug a similar hole right next to the first. after a while the entire garden was full of composted soil and my back was still in good shape to wear myself out doing other garden chores

    i really enjoyd this cant wait for you next upload!!

  40. Dal Cloud on March 23, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Awesome, thank you!!!! My best tip today is soak seeds in yoghurt or other probiotic such as kefir overnight, or even longer! This really gives a boost to older seeds especially!!!!

  41. dave oneil on March 23, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Ive got a question. I have an indoor rabbit and been collecting the droppings to use with coco coir for seedlings of various kinds. They were in a small tub and now there is a white stuff growing on them. Could this be benificial fungi growing or bad mold? Should i just load 1 plant with it and see what happens as an experiment?

  42. Sharon Pienaar on March 23, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Very helpful Thank you.. sending lots of love all the way from sunny South Africa

  44. Luke Cague on March 23, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Or you can use egg cartons for seeds

  45. Steepleview Farm on March 23, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Have you ever tried beneficial nematodes to organically control garden pests? I tried today and made a how to video. What kind of success have you had with this? https://youtu.beNJy1XJD9j_A

    Isopropyl alcohol also removes permanent marker from plant labels, with a lot less work than sanding!
