    I plan to use old potatoes that have eyes. I want to cut them up and plant the eye section in the ground. May do the bucket method but how many should I do per bucket? 3?

    Most of what I learned about gardening I learned from my Dad. He used to germinate some of his seeds in a paper towel, on a plate, in a bag. I noticed you don't do that, or even mention it. Is it an unnecessary step? I think he'd do tomatoes and peppers like that but not sure. I can't remember and he passed away so I can't ask him.

    Thank you ! For sharing all your knowledge. I feel so confident with all you have taught me in you youtube channel. I have been watching them over and over for weeks. Blessings!

    Hello, I have another question about watering. I'm doing the 1/4" (20 minute) bottom watering you recommended and have now come to the point where the tops are drying out some. When I water next will that top become damp again from the 20 minute soak or do I spray some on the top too? Also should I use soluble fertilizer every time I water (using the recommended seedling dosage)? The seedlings are starting to come up now. Thanks!

    I have a big bag of Premier peat moss that was left over from last year for lawn. Is that usable in a container to grow a blueberry plant i picked up from Home Depot? I'd do the same routine of soaking it in boiling water first to get rid of any problems.

    Gary, Thank you for all your videos. In March of 2017, you shared a video about peppers and you planted two peppers in one transplant pot. Can I transplant two peppers seedlings from six cell seedlings into a cup? or I will need a bigger transplant into 3" container?

    Another great video, extremely helpful! I personally love the longer formats. I can’t sit through movies, but for some reason I can binge watch and note take on hour long YouTube videos! Lol

    Hi Gary, do you need to wash down the box fruit plant's roots to hydrate them and get rid of any fungus gnats? Don't want to have fungus gnats in my indoor space. Any suggestions on how to get rid of them once you have them? Thanks.

    Any suggestions for getting rid of fungus gnats if they've already been brought indoors? They are in my houseplants. I was thinking of rinsing all the soil off them and planting them in new soil after I hot water sterilze it.

    As always very informative!! One recommendation, wear a lighter (or white) shirt. When you show the roots it blends in with your shirt. Keep up the awesome videos!!

    i really enjoy your videos. I noticed you are using 2 gallon buckets. I thought all containers need drainage holes on the bottom. advise. Thanks

    Really like your videos Gary! You are refreshing a lot of really old memories and sparking new ideas for memories I hope to make with my daughters! I’m a second year gardener this year (as an adult anyway…we gardened as kids growing up but got away from it) but anyway we started onions a week ago ( I was so excited, and excited about the excitement my 5 year old had to see germination already at 6-7 days under lights in the garage)but haven’t started anything else yet and wanted to know if the starting mix should be “re sterilized” with boiling water if kept in a plastic container? We haven’t seen any gnats but want to start some annual flowers indoors along with other garden vegetables in the next few weeks! Any assistance would be greatly appreciate! Keep up the good work!

    thanks for the video, i've already bought a few, they're in my garage, and im hoping they survive until april 15th (my last frost date) but i think ill throw in some peat/coco like u mentioned.

    Super hot peppers take about 130 – 150 days (seed to fruit) harvest ripened fruit. Now rare wild pepper varieties can take 50+ days to germinate, more of a challenge to grow. Great video my friend! Keep up the good work.

    Do you recommend fish emulsion to feed seedings or is it too strong?

    Hi Gary, I just wanted to let you know that I've been doing my own seed starting mix with 1 part coco coir (mother earth bale, has 0 ppm), 1 part peat moss, 1 part worm castings and 1/4 part vermiculite for the past 5 year and it has work wonders for me. I had never had to use any kind of fertilizer on my seedlings. Hope you'll give it a try. Thanks again for another great video.

    very nice episode. Keep the format as it is. Its like sitting their in your room. I do not have so much space indoors. I had to transplant Lupine's today, and take my chances with
    it, putting them in the greenhouse already. Although they can be started in February, we have cold freezing weather now, 35F daytime 18F night, but lot of Sunshine. I hope they survive.
    Put container in container for more protection against cold. Temps in greenhouse about 12-14 F higher, so about 30F at night. All the rest i have to start later, can't do as many indoor

    Awesome video Gary.. I have the worst luck with fig plants for some reason but I keep trying. Did you put a hole in that pot or no.?

    Very cool video Gary. I've got some peppers and tomatoes going myself. I only grow two peppers, a mildly spicy one and an orange sweet bell. I bred both of them. I need to look into AAS for a possible input in the squash family–a yellow summer. I really like how you steer people to correct container mixes. It doesn't have to be difficult. All the best brother.

    THANKS very much for your video's.  Your my favorite gardening channel.  I appreciate all the effort you put into the video's.  Your a great teacher and very thorough. I'm sure my garden will improve with your information.

    Great ideas. I wasn’t successful last year with strawberries starters, but will try your method in starting inside. On your small white buckets, how many holes do you generally make and how many times do you fertilize your fruit plants? Thank you for the great advise.

    Just to let other people know: I bought grape plants and brought them inside to take care of them. Unfortunately, they had fungus gnats in their soil so it harmed all of my other plants. So please be careful about buying those plants and bringing them inside. Just wait until the last frost date then buy them. It's just not worth it, in my opinion, to buy them early and tend to them indoors.

    Too bad you don't have a helper to zoom in. Some of the things you do, I wish I could see more closely. Or an overhead camera to get bits of what you're doing. I've been a subscriber for a long time, so I know what you're already doing, but sometimes it's nice to see what you're seeing. ☺️

    Hi Gary love your info but one question I see a lot of people using Pvc or abs an not for short periods of time but for year's is it save I see people making strawberry tower's and many other not food safe product….. Keep the great work going… Take care. Thanks

    My vote is for the longer format videos. The storage container used upside down is an amazing idea.

    I can tell you're optimistic about this planting season. Lots of gardeners seem to be upbeat this year; could be we've all learned some valuable lessons last year. Love the plastic containers! Going to see if they have a bit bigger ones for my tomato sprouts. March wind in SE TX will tear them to pieces if they're outside uncovered.
