    I should have said that we are on agricultural land and very close to the sea on a penisular – hence it is quite raw. thank you

    hello. just found your videos and have been catching up loads. I live in North Devon and it's very damp all year round. I have a small veg patch and salad bed and find my biggest enemy is the constant wet and I notice that you seem to manage to have dry land, I wonder if your mulching is helping you and do you recommend I try that. Just to give you some indidcation of how wet it is here. I rarely have to water at all. I'd really appreciated some tips on how to get my garden less wet

    I absolutely love your videos Huw. I've currently been binging on them for the past couple of days. I'm a complete beginner, I have a large garden considering I live in London and currently on mat leave so I'd like to do something productive with my kids while I'm off. Off the top of my head I'd say my garden's about 20 by 40ft at least. I've always loved the thought of growing my own food. As we sit here, my garden is almost all grass, with a patio at the front and back. I really want to get going but the truth is I have no idea where to begin. I know it's too late for tomatoes and strawberries etc. What do you think I can do now as a start to get things going and what seeds should I buy for my first crop? I'd really appreciate help, thanks

    Question: The previous owner of our home planted a holly bush in a full-shade (no direct sunlight, hours of indirect sunlight) spot to cover an unsightly utility meter which is about 3 feet high. I want to remove the holly bush (so my very young children do not pick and eat the berries) and replace it with something that will grow at least 3 feet tall and produce some food. I am considering blackberries on a trellis. Will they produce with no direct sunlight? If not, do you have any other suggestions? (I am in zone 6, USA) Thank you very much!

    I absolutely LOVE your YouTube channel, and have started a no-dig garden with your help and the help of Charles Dowding. I am very excited with your upcoming endeavors. I will pray for your school exams! Happy Spring!

    Love this video. I just bought a house and have a mini orchard out back (1 cherry, 1 plum, 2 apples, and a hazelnut tree) and the ground under them is all waterlogged and unproductive.

    I'm planning on turning it into a permaculture food forest and this has given me great ideas of what I can add under and at the edges of the trees. Thank you!

    Fantastic, I think we have close the the same weather here in Vancouver so this will be really useful. Our yard is very shady(forest) with a few hours of hot sun in summer 😉
