    Great tips! What is the name of the white bark tree in the background? Its beautiful!

  2. Charles gilliland on April 4, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I wish the garden centers by my had proven winners

  3. Jen Lynn on April 4, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    would love an update video on this garden !

  4. Christina Kreilich on April 4, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Do you ever post update photos or videos so we can see the results during bloom season?

  5. Angael Tartar Rose on April 4, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Such beautiful work! Yet, i’d really love to see an episode on how to reclaim rough ground, & begin a planting bed!
    What are all the alternative ways, such as tilling, etcetera. It sure does look easier with existing beds! Show us how you made them from scratch, please!

  6. Awesome68ful on April 4, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Great tips and advice. Thanks much for the inspiration. Love your videos even if I can’t apply it here, watching them is like walking in your garden. Btw, Laura is it better to remove those containers for perennial ground covers. Or better to have them inside the ground for easy management of ground plants. M in a tropical country so I don’t have to change my plants according to seasons.! Much appreciated and look forward to yr reply. 🥰

    finally found the first Garden Answer video I ever saw! Liked it so much I became a regular viewer. Thanks guys!

  8. Terry Walkenhorst on April 4, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    I love your Russell. Such a ham. Best tutorial I’ve ever heard about clematis. Short sweet and succinct explanation. Clematis demystified. 👏👏👏. If that is a Fiskars rake they will replace at no cost. Love Fiskars products especially the new ones (to me) you’ve introduced me to. (❤️ my new shrub rake and kangaroo bag!!!). I do ❤️ love my Felco 2 best of pruners. Another find (and Christmas gift) thanks to your great videos. Keep teaching and inspiring all of us. 😊💐🪴👏

  9. Carol Hughes on April 4, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I love that you don’t go off topic or take forever to give the information! Clear, concise and to the point! Very refreshing!

  10. Love always Jasmine on April 4, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Can I use a shovel to remove weeds?

  11. LoriMinnesota on April 4, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    I know you say not to stress about what kind of mulch, but here we cannot find anything as fine or deep brown as what you have. So what kind is it? I stick to wood chips in front of my house…it looks good and the plants seem to like it ok. But I am adding a flower garden out back and would love to know…what kind?!

  12. Alisa Benjamin on April 4, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Rumor has it Russell is really a small lion. #rawrrr

  13. Mary Willis on April 4, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Love Russell

    Russell seems right-at-home in the garden!! =).

  17. D C on April 4, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Just found your channel and already obsessed

  18. Leonardo BC on April 4, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I already applied mulch on my front bed, and I want to plant to some peonies; can I plant herbaceous peonies bulbs in mulch, or I need to dig into the soil?

  19. Gayle Klein on April 4, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    You inspire me!!!

  20. Deborah Plyler on April 4, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    hi, I bought every green shrubs in the fall of 2018, I planted them in high quality soil and mulch, but I wasn’t aware deer loved these shrubs they chewed green off left the wood. There not growing good because of deer, would it help them to grow back to health if I dig them up and put them in pots ? And trim the plant where the deer chewed the green off of the shrubs?

  21. Lynne Moore on April 4, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    I picked begonias and impatiens for the shady spots in my garden.

  22. Miki B. Hon on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    the cat on the tree must be happy, being out again after winter.

  23. Eb Brown on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Hey Laura what is the name of mulch you use

  24. Kat M. on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Great video

  25. Kj Kayla Johnson on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Just put some new flowers in our flower bed and now they’re all wilted because it keeps getting cold at night. So irritating.

  26. Rita’s Sewing Haven on April 4, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Is there a Garden Answer for zone 10a?

  27. Priscilla Whinery on April 4, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Where do you get all your plants?

  28. Charles Bale on April 4, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I got some great ideas, thank you.

  29. Jennifer Simpson on April 4, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    What irrigation system do you recommend? Have you ever done a video on installing drip irrigation in a garden?

  30. Curt Clapier on April 4, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    I’d like to discuss with you a cross promotion strategy. I need content for a Facebook Page I run. We sell home services and so we want to provide valuable content to our audience of home owners. I think how to garden content would be great. I’m wondering if you’d allow me to take some of your content and upload to natively to my facebook page with credit given to you obviously and links back to your channel. We are not competing with you, we just think your content would be of interest to the same people we sell our services to. Home owners. If you are open to a discussion please let me know how to get a hold of you or email me at curt.clapier@gmail.com

  31. Noreen Bowen on April 4, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Thank you so much for this video! I have a flower bed that has been neglected for several years and want to completely revamp it. These tips will help so much in undertaking this project!! And I will definitely have to check into incorporating the clematis … I love their blooms and have never been successful in having the vine type. Hopefully I will have better luck with the bush type! Thanks again for sharing 🙂

  32. Toya Weber on April 4, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    This was very helpful and clear to a beginner like myself. Thank you 🙂

  33. Geeta Padayachi on April 4, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Nice video!

  34. Sara Haley on April 4, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Hello from June 2020- this was my first Garden Answer video 2 years ago! ❤️

  35. Carla Ross on April 4, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    You are the best

  36. Aline Santos on April 4, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Great video! It looks beautiful

  37. Lynette Lewis on April 4, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Very informative and inspiring. I have a few areas to work on

  38. Mair Waugus on April 4, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    A ginger cat named Russell 🙀

  39. Virshone Brinkley Sproles on April 4, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Beautiful garden bed! What is drip tubing and how does it work? Do you leave your hose on all day?

  40. Meena Mankar on April 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    loved it

  41. Nel Clark on April 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I enjoy your videos. Your easy to understand, you give good advice that’s not too complicated, yet knowledgeable. You also offer names of plants that can be used in a colder climate. Makes me want to get out there and start my garden! 🙂

  42. Chamber20 on April 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm


  43. Midnight9400 on April 4, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    So is that water-hose in the ground being used to irrigate?

  44. RWS12234 on April 4, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    This is challenging for newbies like me. 😳 Going to need a notepad and another few views. Lol.

  45. julybabie24 on April 4, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    I’m trying to get to the links that you’ve added in your description and I can’t get into any of the more links category with the tools, soil, tech etc… can you try to post it again?

  46. Chi Chi's World on April 5, 2021 at 12:01 am

    how long do you run the water in that area to be considered enough water? 30 min or 1 hour? I never hear how long you would round the water for each garden area. Help! lol

  47. Stephanie Jones on April 5, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Hi I’m new to the channel. My mom passed Away June 2019 and I am going to be taking over the gardening. I need to learn everything and this channel is amazing!!!!

  48. tfat98 on April 5, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Very helpful!

  49. Ahmed Charfeddine on April 5, 2021 at 12:05 am

    When you plant flowers, do you need to replant new ones next season, or is it a one life time job, in the sense that when flowers die in winter their seeds fall down and give rebirth in following season and thus it is like you are having a perennial plants ?

  50. Debra Hardesty on April 5, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Great tutorial
