    Hi from Polettirosa Homestead. I live in 6b, in Wise County VA, Southwest VA

    I’m a science teacher and we are all shut out of school due to corona. I’m trying to learn how to garden and sharing the experience with my students on my YouTube channel. This video was REALLY helpful to me as I don’t know what I’m doing. For example, I was about to plant tomato plants outdoors a couple of days ago when my neighbor/gardening expert stopped me because it is WAY too early to do that. Thanks again. I subscribed and look forward to more of your videos.

    I know that this is a year old but im curious about starting kale indoors?
    I start kale and spinach in the fall, they stay small and look dead over the winter and shoot up fast and get huge early in the spring. Zone 6

  4. Samyukta Dutta on April 30, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Thank you… very informative videos.. Can you please make a video on hardy perennial roses for zone 5 to 9

  5. tehdewm on April 30, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!

  6. MetaDrew on April 30, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Super helpful, I’m a novice gardener and I’m just too lazy to make a notebook of what things to do when – I’ll probably reference this video series for a couple years until I either retain the information myself or muster up the will to write these things down. Looking forward to the April guide. Thank you!

    Thank you

    You may want to add broad beans to your repertoire. I started mine last week, and when they are a bit bigger they get replanted into milk crates (9 plants per crate), and put into the greenhouse until its time to plant my tomatoes. Then they get lugged out and set in a sheltered spot (its very windy where we live) to keep growing. I get a decent harvest from them. When the weather warms up, I also plant more in the main garden.

    Good job .NIce video series .I started my peppers last year on March 1. I plan on starting mid feb this year .

  11. Misty Blue Garcia on April 30, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    When should we sow flower seeds in zone 6 or 6b?

  12. John Wayne on April 30, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    You literally repeated your last video. I thought you were trying to be a gardener not a YouTube star.

  13. Cracker Carl Bumpkin on April 30, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Starts at 2:22

  14. Small Lot Gardening on April 30, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Thank you for the informative video!

  15. Lisa Petric on April 30, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Finally, someone who answered my question. Can you tell me about when I can direct sow onion seed outside in zone 6 (Ohio just south of Cleveland). We’re pushing the end of March. I’m a teacher. Spring Break is coming up. For the first time in years, they aren’t predicting Noah’s floods for our spring so I’d like to get things started.

  16. rich gresch on April 30, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    We’re dying for the zone 5/6 April planting guide. 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  17. Mary Had A Little Farm on April 30, 2022 at 7:13 pm

  18. Tyricka Wilcox on April 30, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    …and if one were to prefer a paid assistant answer their comment?🤔

    ..

  23. Robin Rayner on April 30, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    I have the worst luck gardening one year…. Black ants raids everything in sight. What is the best solution to avoid from recurring ?

  24. Morning Light on April 30, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Good stuff, thanks!

  25. Gayle Scovel on April 30, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Finally! Someone who talks about my zone! Yea!

  26. Madam Truth on April 30, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Thanks for this video really had a lot of info was thinking of starting a garden at my new house. Really dont know where to start so I thought Id start with what zone I live in. Not many videos that explain like yours so I really enjoyed this.

  27. Nimco M. on April 30, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Thank you so much. this really helped.

  28. Gmj Steele on April 30, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    I live in PEI and in Zone 5. Nothing goes in the ground before June. We shovel snow into April.

  29. Alexia Silcox on April 30, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    gust got a sub HAHA

  30. averageboring on April 30, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    Zone 6. I put down carrot and Alaska pea seeds. There is about 2 to 4 inches of barn manure/shavings. Then a layer of hay. All in a cold frame/tunnel. Was this foolish? First time gardening after moving from California.

  31. LeeAnn Lawie on April 30, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    2nd year gardener here, it’s funny how much harder it is this year now that I know way more yet oh sooo little still. 🤣
    I do a LOT of containers in my tiny zone 6a yard. So my big question is… can I sew seeds outside in containers the same way I would in the ground in the early spring???

  32. Rosemarie Kury on April 30, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    I’m a beginner gardener in Zone 5 but I plan to mostly use bags and a small raised garden bed. Trouble here is we are in a drought and they’re predicting a hot and dry spring! Last year began getting hot in May and by June 100 degree temps so I’m hoping they’ll be a warm April and May so I can plant. Your video was helpful. I always want to plant flowers early but along comes snow in May!

  33. James Steffens on April 30, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    What is your location? I will be growing a garden for the 1st time in Chesterton in. Am I in zone 6 or 6a?

  34. Janice Bowcott on April 30, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Should I be fertilizing my soil before I plant seeds outdoors. Awesome video. Thank you.

  35. ificandoitsocanyou on April 30, 2022 at 7:29 pm

  36. Anonymous Prepper on April 30, 2022 at 7:29 pm

  45. KabNpaujNeeb Vwj on April 30, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Hey…what happened to flower seeds? January videos included flowers. LOL

  46. Nan Colorado on April 30, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    I have a lot of trees in perimeter of possible garden area. Would you recommend container gardening over raised beds? 5b zone🙂

  47. luke lucy on April 30, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    New to Idaho, I went to your website for the zone, didn’t see it.

  48. triste1517 on April 30, 2022 at 7:41 pm
