    @ Maddy Harland, can you tell me what those striking orange flowers are (in front of you when you are talking about the potatoes in the wheelbarrow)?

    I have a garden of 30-50sqm growing space and the biggest factor I have found is that you need to disregard traditional spacings and plant closer together. I can grow 1 month's supply of salad onions in an area of 0.5*0.5m, 1sqm will grow me 23 parsnips, enough to last a winter as they grow big in a 20*20cm equilateral triangle lattice. I sow radish and carrots far closer than recommended and get excellent yields. Focussing on yield per square metre is more important than yield per plant. This year I am trying a four crop successional growing strategy on 1sqm. I got 10lb of radish (6lb after topping and tailing) in May, this month I will harvest 36 beetroots, I have sown spring onions to plant out 70 modules in late July and will put out Valdor lettuce in mid September to hopefully get a crop in mid to late November.

    12m*15m is almost a full allotment! A small garden is 30-50sqm.

    Was interested to see that you are growing in used tyres. The current thinking is that you should not do it, chemicals leaching out etc. I'm nearly 70 and have always done it as did my grandmother and we all seem to have suffered no ill effects.

    Chemicals in tyres can leach into the soil and then into the veg.

    So, don't buy greens from the store because they might be cleaned with chlorinated water, yet you grow food in car tires and railroad tie boxes?

    Hello Huw, do you also grow sweet potato? They take extremely a lot of space and I would like to know how you would go about it in planting them in a way to control them from spreading all over the garden.

    Great video as always Huw! Your videos are always a moment of serenity in strange times 🙂 I have an off topic and possibly offbeat question for Tim. Where did you get that t-shirt and are they available for purchase? Simply amazing 🙂

    4:00 Brassica cages really work, I have not had a cabbage escape yet….

    Are those wooden lattice trellis safe for the garden? Isn’t it treated with chemicals to prevent rotting? Wouldn’t it leach into your vege patch?

    With so much produce, how do you decide what to eat every day?

    Why do so many ignore autists for whom this method of teaching DOES NOT WORK…. Just love(not) being constantly excluded!
