    Maritime Gardening has a lot of videos on his no dig gardens, in case you are interested. Can't wait to see your miniature fruit trees planted up!

    That was a really interesting piece of information about the bees and crocus I didn't know , would love to read the article will the magazine be available in the UK. 🐝🐝🐝

    I don't know if you are going to grow the 'Black Russian' tomato next season, but I have grown them for about 10 years and they are one of the best tasting tomatoes, with a rich and complex taste, unlike anything you can buy in the shops, I slice them and cook them for a minute on top of cheese on toast. I also have grown 'Purple Ukraine', all of the Russian type tomatoes are good, infact I still have some 'Black Russian' on the landing windowsill that are the last to ripen from this years crop.

    Where can I get a planter like yours, the gray one with the pockets in it?

    Planting a variety of fruit trees on a dwarfing rootstock is a good way of saving space and getting more varieties into a small space, also if you train the trees into cordons, fans, espaliers you are making the best use of the vertical space. I like to choose a mix of the best of the modern disease resistant varieties of apple, pear and plum and some heritage varieties also. Happy gardening, Duncan.

    I love how u put your videos together. Cant figure out if you have two cameras or you have one (probably one…haha) and you perfectly pause, set up your framing, to continue talking on the same point. Lollz. You're clearly a writer or teacher based on your thoughtful video purpose! That sink is a perfect bulb container! Try putting some flowers on the top… like dianthus or larkspur or an ornamental grass. The bulbs will sprout through the surface plants and you'll have a multi seasonal planter!!!!! It wont just entice you in the early spring, but keep you visually hopeful during those awful windy winter days! …and love the tease of some of the results. Cant wait to see what the consensus from the polling are. I am sooooo invested in this community planned garden… hahaha (exaggerstion… but wheres the lie.) And praying for an unboxing!!! Your unwavering philosophy keeps me motivated to continue gardening too!

    Those bulbs in the sink are going to give a lovely show in spring.Cannot wait to see your climbing roses in flower.I love the way you pronounced Cotoneaster as two separate words, got me wondering if the way its pronounced in UK is completely wrong ..haha.

    Looking forwards to the next season but so much to do to prepare the veg and flower beds.Having a Great time digging in the dark and visualising the requirements of the size and location of each plant.Hope the weather stays mild to do more cultivating although there is a lot of flu going around with the mild weather we are having at the moment.

    Could you explain first early potatoes. What makes them first. I have heard some explanations, but I still don’t get it. Also, second early and main crop.

    Enjoying your videos. It's like visiting a weekly friend and her garden. Will be pretty to see the bulbs against your clear glass house. Do wonder about erosion if cardboard is laid across grass with mulch on top.

    That's a pretty neat idea about the potatoes. I had no idea you could do that to spring potatoes. Thank you for all that you shared.

    loved the video…it's like visiting a friend each week…your lawn looks so lush, even at this time of year…was curious? can you take worms from one spot and bring to another (to nourish your allotment)…love the 'sink' planting of bulbs…that color will be soooo welcomed in the spring…have a beautiful week and thanks for sharing…

    Positive thinking, spring is around the corner even though snow is on it's way.
    Spring is better to think about!
    Can't wait to see those bulbs blooming.

    My imagination is starting to work on things you have said you will be doing. I am excited for you as each project gets started and next year will be on display for us to see. Enjoy your week. 🙂

    Oh, I can’t wait to see your vintage sink when the flowers all pop through! Please give us an update when it happens. I really enjoy watching and learning from you. Watching you from Seattle, WA USA

    The bulbs will be beautiful. Any trouble with squirrels there? They always get to my tulips. Your yard is looking so nice.

    Tanya I love your positive view in talking about spring, but here in the Midwest we just had our first snow storm and it seems we have at least three and a half months of Winter!!
    I love how your garden it's coming along you have been a busy 🐝 🐝 🐝🐝

    Negrita are really beautiful and mine have been really reliable for a few years. The crocuses will be great for the bees, as they’ll provide that important food when they’re emerging from hibernation ☺️

    Yes Spring is around the corner. I love to plant bulbs and roses too! It is exciting to see the changes that you are making to the garden. I will be watching for great ideas. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

    Thank you for another lovely video. I have my allotment area at home too (also no dig) so love watching you preparing it all from scratch.
    There is a no dig Facebook group which Charles Dowding comments on as it is run by his partner Steph. I’m sure if you post your specific questions then they will be able to help/advise xx

    When I set a raised bed I use cardboard to separate the grass beneath from what I fill the bed with. It does a very good job of retaining the bed soil. I take the time to remove the tape off of shipping boxes it's not one hundred percent organic there is glues in cardboard but I feel it's minimal for the benefit of using it to set my raised beds. Just an idea. Great subject will have to check out bulbs soon! Those birds do a pretty good job of eliminating berries at least you have not to sweep them up!!

    That tulip bulb you turned on it's side had a small bulb to the side of it which means it would soon become two bulbs. So the main point will also sprout.

    I enjoy your videos. I like to keep up with what's going on in your gardens. Next spring should be an exciting one for you, seeing everything blossom and bloom. Have a great week!

    I just planted 80-90 saffron crocus for fall color & saffron threads. Perhaps you could add a few in next time you divide to feed the bees in the fall dearth.
