    Was wondering if you had any tips on growing in a Tennessee climate! Love your vids but most are on desert climate growing and not sure of what I could do here in middle Tennessee

    Whats your verdict on growing plants in conatiners like an ordinary plastic pot vs. a colander, fabric pot or a pond basket ? The last 3 have better drainage, better root aeration and have the extra benefit of air-pruning, for denser roots. Yet, plastic pots are commonly used worldwide, including horticultural universities ! Is basic horticultural science being ignored even by the experts ? Where does self watering pots fit in all this ? Thanks for your perspective on this.

    Would love if you did a video on high yielding varieties of sweet peppers. I have like 10 varieties I tried this summer, and only my yellow wax pepper is doing well and producing frequently.

    I am new to gardening (1st year)–so, forgive me if this is common knowledge–but what is the canopy made of that's over all the plants? And what is it used for? Is it for shade?

    Hi John! I live in Southern New England, and have just gotten my hands on a raised bed abandoned by my neighbor. We've taken care of getting the soil ready, but I'm not sure what we can plant because our growing season is so short. We already have two beds with greens, peppers, and tomatoes, but we were hoping to fill the new bed with greens that will have a quick turnaround time. Do you have any suggestions as to what we can plant in anon desert climate this late?

    Thanks for all that you do!

    Is there a place like this in vegas?

    I disagree that those starts take 3 months. Most veg started from seed only takes about month to get to about a foot height, and get to almost their full size potential in about 2 months. I plant 95% of plants from seeds, and it takes very little effort. A single packet of seeds could net u like 50 plants for like $1.50.

    Not in Lake Havasu City! Nothing survives the summer of Havasu! Try 118 degrees! For 3 months! Try 120 degrees! Your chances of growing veggies on Venus are better.

    What do you think about eating the cannabis buds? I've been doing this for many months and it feels great but no high like smoking it. I am curious to know if you have tried it? Thanks for your helpful gardening tips!!
