From initial landscape designs to patio and garden trellis, he wanted to create a dramatic change throughout the garden. Andrew Greenhill, member of MyBuilder.com since January 2009, knew from his teens that he wanted to work outdoors and when he left school he went to Pershore College in Worcestershire to study horticulture.

My edible perennials are really taking off! As my berries and fruits trees are getting more established, they are now beginning to bear fruit! I continue to train plants to grow on a variety of trellis systems to increase plant density. Espalier pruning techniques have kept trees looking nice while remaining compact. As many over-story plants are getting established, I continue to layer in some smaller, plants which include herbs, flowers, and fruit bearing ground covers. I’ve set up a few mini fruit tree guilds and other companion plantings. In the one acidic loving fruit bed I have blueberries, lingonberries and wintergreen. These are all quite happy growing alongside each other. At the base of my 4-in-1 stone fruit multi-grafted tree (peach + apricot + plum + nectarine) I also have oregano, citronella balm and yarrow. In another edible landscaping bed I have an Asian persimmon, some honeyberries, Alpine strawberries and garlic chives. The trellis systems are all in place. No doubt, the passion fruit will be an aggressive grower. My Chinese yam (air potato) is growing very well. And my hardy kiwi is already blooming and […]

    I really had to end the life of making my garden look good and getting the pool and the front of the house which gives me that much stress to keep requesting for new designs. Until my sister told me what to do and it was this program   [Details Here==https://plus.google.com/u/1/110086446704524205338/posts/HrzGjo6aFKc ] that really saved me from harming myself. I’m grateful.

    Lovely video content! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard the talk about – Saankramer Breathtaking Design System (do a google search)? It is an awesome one off product for learning how to design an amazing dream landscape without the headache. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my good mate called Gray finally got great success with it.

    Great tour of your garden. Smartly put together. You made mention of your good friend, climate change, and I am assuming you mean man-made climate change. Would you do a video to substaintiate your good friend, man-made climate change. Please touch on the archeological evidence of the massive changes in temperature pre-industrialized world, to include both ice ages. Touch on the temperature data that says there has been no significant "warming" in the last 20 years or so. Touch on the hystaria of global cooling of the early 1970's and touch on the direct correspondance of increased activity on the Sun parrallels increases of Earth's Temperature as well as the direct correspondence of lesser activbity to lower temperatures. This is a serious request, not tongue in cheeck. I think the garden is great!!!!

    Albo, last year I built two 3' by 12' sub-irrigated beds. I followed your instructions to the T and had a great harvest. This year, I topped off the beds with more potting mix, but the crops have not done nearly as well. What organic fertilizers should I have used and in what quantities?

    Hi, great garden, I just subscribed. Your grapevine, it looks like it's in part shade, does it produce grapes? I'm thinking of planting a grapevine in a part shade.

    Can I ask where you got the H. Yellow Gooseberry? I've been looking for that variety and can only find the red.

    I'm in Central NY in zone 5b. I LOVE passion fruit. I didn't think you could grow them in colder climates? May I ask which variety you have, where you got them and how you take care of them please? I would Love, love LOVE to have them here since they are 2 for 5.00 at the grocery store.

    it looks like you added maybe a irrigation pipe down your self watering or do you still use a vertical pipe for adding the water? I'm getting ready to build mine bed this sunday!

    Hi, Al. New subscriber. Love your vids. Lots of great ideas. If you answered this before, please forgive me for asking you to respond again. What zone are you in? I see a lot of your plants that share my zone 6, so assume that you are 5 or 6.

    All your plants look like they r growing well, and u got almost every available space nicely populated. Luv peaches, u got loads. R u able to produce enough veg/fruits for yourself, up to like 90+% ? Asian pear tree looks big enough to have some fruits.

    Great video! Nice selections. I've been growing the hardy kiwi for awhile but not the Issai version. You'll probably have better luck with that one.

    Those honeyberries will totally take over that space in 1-2 seasons. Be prepared! Some of my 3rd year ones are taking up 4 sq/ft each.
