    It’s like she doesn’t have an accent but she does at the same time 🧐

    Awesome 😍😍 So pretty

  3. Adhya Devarashetty on April 1, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    It would be good to put lettuce in shade it does better there

    Your Video is really so interesting, please stay connected! Like

    If you have a sharp point knife like a steak knife, you can make your own holes in cheap plastic pots. Just apply even firm pressure while turning the knife, it will eventually make a hole because the plastic is relatively soft. You can do that with plastic bottle too if you want cheap pots to start plants in; or a drainage pot to put inside a cover pot. <3

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂 I hope to follow in your footprints this next spring.

    What is the crackling noise throughout the video??

  9. Zakiya Mangera on April 1, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    This was so calming to watch and I love the terracotta /clay pots against the brick backdrop

  10. teresa0923 on April 1, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Hi what kind of soil you use ?

  11. Porschia Thomas on April 1, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Cute garden girl! I love it and I also love the fact that you were in actual house gardening clothes in the beginning montage, keeping it real 🙂

  12. Kimberly Meade on April 1, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Enjoyed this ❤️recently got 3 house plants for my room really makes a difference to the space.

  13. Random Thoughts on April 1, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Carrots and broccoli need at least a five gallon container to grow in.

  14. Ellen's Abundant Life on Less on April 1, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    I love to see other people’s small gardens. I have a garden in my small townhouse space and also an indoor garden that I enjoy in the winter especially. You did a nice job 👍

  15. Sahar Sunrise on April 1, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    It looks nice! We also try new ideas in our balcony every year! 😃

  16. Lorena Marks on April 1, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    The video you linked is also the one I viewed before I start on this journey. I’m a little nervous, gardening is something I’ve been wanting to do, but I don’t wanna kill any plants.

    Good luck to us on this venture!

  17. Joyce McInnis on April 1, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Don’t worry about the aloe. Like Bae Bae’s kids, they don’t die, they multiply. 😊

  18. Kelly Anne on April 1, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Beautiful! Congratulations. Love what you’ve done with what you have, where you are. Inspiring.

  19. Olwethu Nkalitshana on April 1, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    Thank you for this video!
    I have been planning on starting a veggie and herb garden for about a year now but this is the motivation I needed. I have been trying to grow an avo seed into a tree on my window sill for about 2 weeks now. I can’t believe I have grown into liking home & garden content and videos, crazy what age does to you😅

    Oh and thanks for linking the shelves! Hopefully they ship to SA💜

  20. OMGshinyobject on April 2, 2021 at 12:01 am

    I have seen so many patio garden videos from non brits living in London is this a conspiracy 🤔

  21. shanice ward on April 2, 2021 at 12:01 am

    8:35 this is so beautiful btw, love this channel already

  22. Mimi Abdul on April 2, 2021 at 12:02 am

    You have inspired me to grow some herbs !!!!!

  23. Ifeyinwa on April 2, 2021 at 12:06 am

    I just posted a garden update video!!!! Check it out here and thank you so much for watching:)

  24. Lewis W on April 2, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Do you still find yourself buying the same veg/herbs or are you rotating enough to sustain meals, etc?

  25. Joyce McInnis on April 2, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Mint is very invasive., it will need more space or to be pruned often.

  26. Krissy Isabelle on April 2, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Omg this has made me excited to start my balcony garden! x

  27. Tashé on April 2, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Where is your patio chair and table from?

  28. Karina on April 2, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Don’t forget your can get a lot of materials 2nd hand. Gardening gets expensive if you buy everything new.

  29. Meenu Meenu on April 2, 2021 at 12:12 am

    Fully enjoyed the vdo👌👍👏

  30. Jamaican Gyal on April 2, 2021 at 12:13 am

    You could drill holes in the pots

  31. The Beach Planter on April 2, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Your space is beautiful sis!

    Miracle grow is really really bad by the way. Never buy it for your indoor plants. It has fungus gnats in it. I’m going to be trying to get ‘live soil’ this year. Anything with worm castings would be good too. Go organic. It’s better for you too.

  34. akshay tarfe on April 2, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Some of your plants may need just indirect sunlight. So they might look weak in current light conditions. Try keeping weaker one’s in indirect light for some time.

  35. my home rumahku on April 2, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Beautiful garden 🌱

  36. Kavitha Joanes on April 2, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Poundland pots you need to poke holes underneath.

  37. Carol Anne Chapman on April 2, 2021 at 12:20 am

    I like how you take us through step-by-step. Plus, that’s a great suggestion: cheaper garage shelves instead of more expensive gardening shelves. Even though I’m in the U.S., I know what to look for now. Thanks. 🌻🌺🌸

  38. None-ya Business on April 2, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Hello from south London, love your video , I’m doing the same thing as you are , u only have a balcony, but I’m planting a lot, but I recycled my water bottles and plant my vegetables.. your aloe vera plant will grow better in the Bathroom, they don’t like to much water and don’t grow well in the cold..❤❤❤

  39. Miss Chris on April 2, 2021 at 12:21 am

    OMG your story is my story sis. I researched for over a year trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I got lost in the matrix of gardening and all the so-called success tips from basic agriculture to star/sun/planetary alignment. Most of my delay was built around anxiety of being as organic as possible and from past experiences of killing plants I was not eager to fail.
    Then one day I was at home depot making a budget list and just decided to purchase a city pickers patio raised bed container garden and went for it. At that moment I was like "the hell with it…let me just try." #BestDecisionEver.
    When I tell you it has been so surprisingly therapeutic and fun getting dirty. I get my weekly dose of vitamin D being out in the sun and it has really improved my mood. For all you ladies out here struggling with anxiety, anger and all of the above due to whatever has stimulated it, I am telling you that tending to my little patio garden has helped me gain much more peace. Putting my energy into the literal earth has fed me in ways that I could not imagine and did not expect. I was literally doing this to save money and am getting some therapy and self care simultaneously. YES!
    I have slowly been adding more beds and buying more seeds. 3 months later (I started in September) and I am nearly ready to harvest my red russian kale and have turnip greens sprouting (I started from seeds). I’ve lost and aloe plant and some pepper seeds so far but I do not feel like a failure. I am just refining my now green thumb. I am learning as I go since I exhausted researching the research on my researches. LOL, so Just Do It Ladies AND KEEP IT SIMPLE.
    The most helpful videos I have found have come from black and indian women. They keep it simple like my mom. Start simple then get complex. Everyone else explains the science without giving relative meaning and that is a major step they skip. Thank you Ifeyinwa!

  41. Erika Roy on April 2, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Oh by the way, about your scotch bonnet (very very hot) is best to take off the buds for the first two weeks after transplanting. After that you can let it flower.
    I learned that by chance last year when I happened to look up how to grow peppers. Also, I found out to never buy tomato plants with the flowers on them.

  42. Eugen O on April 2, 2021 at 12:26 am

    The one plant that didn’t survive as you stated was probably overwatered. Your soil does not seem to be well draining and with thorough watering this might lead to problems. For next season I suggest mixing in some sand or pearlite or use different soil. Happy growing 🙂

  43. shanice ward on April 2, 2021 at 12:26 am

    thank you for this! i’ve been trying to get my friends to start a garden who live in an apartment. ☀️hopefully this video will show them how simple it is!!
    i also have a channel i post about my garden, natural hair & being a college student.

  44. olives koster on April 2, 2021 at 12:27 am

    I subbed because I myself love gardening and every gardener in the world

  48. Bukola Ade on April 2, 2021 at 12:32 am

    This was very detailed and fun to watch. Never considered a small garden till now. i really want to start a small herb garden. I hope I can find some seedlings here in Lagos. So thanks for piquing my interest.

    Also, i have a small favour to ask all the other 1,500 subscribers on your channel. Kindly invite one person to subscribe so that Ifeyinwa can meet her target this month. If you are active on SM, kindly consider posting on your stories or timeline. She didn’t ask me to do this but I really want to contribute my little to helping her crush her goal this month. thanks guys. xx

  49. Ashioma Isu on April 2, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Beautiful, inspiring and motivating. I have been planning to start gardening for more than a year feeling really overwhelmed but your garden has truly inspired me. Wish me luck as I start my gardening journey this spring in Canada. New subscriber here.🤗
