    Hello All,

    I have a lot of rocks and pebbles in my garden, would you guys recommend sifting where i am going to plant a fruit tree? Also how or what size should the wire mesh be?
    Thank you in advance.

    Can you just stick to the title of your video instead of wasting away the time. And just simply write the link for other reference after the video is more better than wasting the time with unecessary information relevant to the title of your clips.

    What is the best organic fungicide for dealing with black rot on apple tree limbs, I've pruned but I think I'll need a fungicide to fight off the remaining black rot patches, any suggestions?

    Anyone know how I could correct a small fruit tree tilting 45 degrees?  I just bought it.  If I plant the rootstock vertical, the lone branch is tilted.  It's 4ft tall so I don't think I can bend it back without breaking.  It's a bit disappointing.  Thanks.

    Keep in mind guys, that when you top dress soil with Azomite, that is will look "sandy" for a while.  Even when I use micronized Azomite, I find it takes a while to go from the top, to the middle (root zone).  I wish it didn't change the look of my soil, as I love the black look, but for Azomite, it's a trade-off that pays off over time.

    Check my vids if you guys get a chance, as I also deal with Azomite (rock dust), with various experiments and so on.  Thanks to John, I also use rock dust as my cornerstone.

    When digging a hole for any plant, dig it WIDER than the root ball of the plant but not deeper.  If you dig it deeper, then backfill, the plant may sink once the loosened soil re-compacts.  This can cause serious root problems.

    Hey John, thank you so much for answering my question! I couldn't believe it when I heard my You Tube name. If you do come to Sydney, please let me know somehow. I'm sure you agree that having a local to show you round can help get you started with your tour Downunder. Although I've only been gardening since September 2013, I'd love to show you round my modest patio container garden that you were instrumental in creating. You inspired me to learn gardening and what's funny is that I've probably spent over $1000 to end up with about $10 worth of amazingly tasty food (so far) but the learning has been priceless! Keep the videos coming, and again, Thank You.

    I would very much appreciate a reply from either you or a WELL INFORMED viewer.

    Obviously from showing the hose nozzle, I take it you and many others use your hose for watering all your plants, do you think the chemicals in the water, mainly Fluoride, will effect the plant or eventually you, negatively? Is organic gardening still considered organic when you use hose water with all those contaminates?

    Go to the Beekind store near where you live.  They have tons of beekeeping supplies.  Not sure if I've seen any top bar hives there though.  

    If you find deals on CL be careful because used items can have disease & eggs esp. wax moth, so freeze them.  Order from Mann catalog (they're the bee club's fav. place), find good stuff on ebay, or even become a member of a bee club (these are all things that I did and found to be the best sources for info & supplies).  As for being a bee club member, well that was fun too for the first 2 yrs. (as I'm no longer a member now).  You can get a caught swarm or a split in a nuc. if you ask a beekeeper, but typically at the bee clubs they will have 3-4# pkg. bees to order for about $60-80.  Lots of good videos on youtube.  I used to have tons of good ones on my fav. list on my old account.  Mar./Apr. is the best time to set your hive in ca.

    Lol, you've got one black button, awe.

    I've seen your videos on Big Lots deals that include the lawn and garden buyout, and greenhouses and such, Well I work the weekly truck here in TEXAS, and this week we got a whole bunch of different greenhouses, pots and planters, NEW seed starters, and more. I got a $29 4-tier greenhouse to help this winter. Middle of January on, brace yourselves….BIG deals are coming.¬†

    As for bees, check out LDSprepper's channel, he's got a few videos about hive construction and what works effectively, he's very knowledgeable about it. You can get the bees from the local bee keeping society.
