How to Grow Garden Vegetables In Small Spaces

2687 ratings | 618169 views
BBC Gardener of The Decade, Katherine Crouch, shows how to plant and grow a vegetable garden in a small space. Katherine uses a grow bag and wooden poles to allow the vegetable plants and seeds to grow upwards to maximise what fruit and vegetables you can grow in a small space. The varieties of climbing vegetables used in this video include Runner beans and Haricot beans.

I bet that cat crapped in that garden as soon as she turned her back, and probably took out a few lettuces like mine did the other day

Hello there. I would like to know if I should mix some of that compose with some soil, instead of using just compost?

I agree that the finish is a little disappointing -at  the end of summer, the glorious garden would have looked fabulous.  This would further inspire those who are new to this to go out and do it, as it is not a cheap investment until you start to see and eat all the vegetables you can harvest.  Condensed gardening is also known as the Square Foot Gardening Method for those who think these were planted too closely together.

Natasha Lindner kind of like Goddess permaculture guild gardening.

Just my opinion: As much as I wish for this garden bed to thrive and stay healthy, I HIGHLY DOUBT that it will... herbs have sightly different watering requirement, chards need room to grow, watering at the base to prevent spread of diseases. It will work. Harvest all leafy greens and herbs at baby green stage and prevent disease protectively. 😁
Marty Luty (1 year ago)
This is not quite what Im imagining when someone say small speces :D also the space is poorly used, as there is too much unused space above the garden
Nevena Dorova (1 year ago)
I watched this video yesterday and got so inspired that I went to the nursery today and bought some seeds and 4 wooden panels and my husband made me a raised bed with the same dimensions 80 by 80 cm and tomorrow I'll be ready to plant. Thank you so much for the idea! I'll watch now some other videos from the channel.

For pole beans (Green snap beans) that take up very little surface area you can dig a trench about 14 inches wide, 12 feet long and about a foot deep. Mix Black Kow potting soil with regular potting soil along with dirt from the trench and plant your seeds about six inches apart. Dig holes on each end and put poles in them about 8 feet tall. Put string up in a lattice (squares...across and up and down) pattern between the poles for the beans to climb on. You can also plant a few cucumber seeds in the same trench and grow leaf lettuce at the bottom. This saves a LOT of space and provides a LOT of food! Plant more beans seeds every two or three weeks for a continuous harvest until first frost...
Thanks for sharing some great garden ideas & techniques :D i love it madam :)

This is right up my street - small scale, to see how i do. Love the cat (made me giggle as our old cat would be with us in the garden all day long). Read other posts re: cat loo - lets hope not!!
Beesa10 (2 years ago)
I've made a small raised bed from an old pine drawer with the bottom cut out and filled with compost, I don't have much space and whilst being realistic I'm hoping to grow a few different herbs and veg so this video is very encouraging.
Beesa10 (2 years ago)
+1960gal Thankyou! I nearly broke it apart to take to the tip, I'm glad I didn't because now I have a mini herb garden instead. I went a bit crazy and planted it with chives, parsley, oregano, rosemary, sage, thyme, basil, a tomato plant and two pea plants. Your herb growing sounds like a success! Yes, she does have a pleasant, straightforward way of explaining things and is obviously very knowledgeable (and flexible).
1960gal (2 years ago)
+Beesa10 Hiya - That sounds a really good idea! Nice and contained, supported and sounds like you've a good a chance of growing something as any of us. I'm only just getting into gardening, but I'm loving a big tub the previous owner left here because I've filled it with herbs......AND they're still growing!!! Good Luck. Lets hope you have some success . (Do like watching Katherine, don't you? Nice and realistic, nothing fancy. Just wish I could bend as well as she does!!) :D

When you say "compost" do you mean straight compost or a garden/potting soil?
Elsbeth Steele (2 years ago)
Not helpful.
Melinda Fülöp (6 months ago)
I have to agree. She is a lovely lady, I love how she planted lots of vegetables and herbs is a small space. I think, in fact I know from my own experience, that it will work nicely. But I did not learn anything about how and when to seed these plants, what to do with them later. I will maybe find this info in a later video.

Elizabeth Sulzby (3 years ago)
Also, it seems that all UK and Canadian videos on garden talk about "compost" and do not distinguish between all compost, as Katherine claims, which would lead to weaker plants--and a composted mixture, which would be more advantageous. This video has been bugging me ever since I saw it a couple of weeks ago.
roseofmercy (1 year ago)
Elizabeth Sulzby because being English, it's obvious what she means ! Are you gardener of the decade?
Elizabeth Sulzby (3 years ago)
Katherine, do you answer people's questions and comments? Why would you plant 4 varieties of beans instead of more variety in your vegetables. I get lots of lettuces/salad stuff, lots of herbs, and lots of beans from your video. Don't understand that choice.
Cras gomez (10 months ago)
roseofmercy maybe it's true that she could have given a better example. The most yield that's her original concept that she stated at the beginning of the video
roseofmercy (1 year ago)
Elizabeth Sulzby it's an example, not something to follow slavishly, if you don't like the choices grow something else! Actually, as you are so critical of her in every video, and find fault with her - you clearly don't like her, I think she is great! - why are you even watching her videos?!
Carolyn Campbell (1 year ago)
Why are you criticizing her choices? It's an example of what one can grow. Rather than being a Critical Cathy, make your own video, buy all the plants and do the work. There is nothing in this video that says YOU have to do it her way.
Elizabeth Sulzby (2 years ago)
+FoxyDevonLady I ordered purple hull beans and red runner beans for next year. My regular green beans were once again very prolific but I didn't get much output from my regular black-eyed peas this year. My growing season is too short and I don't get enough heat for them. However, crowder peas and purple hulls grew prolifically for another gardener in my area.
Elizabeth Sulzby (2 years ago)
Hehehe. She's supposed to be a UK expert or model gardener, not a bean counter.

At end I thought she is going to plant some apple trees in between.
Libra Sad (3 years ago)
This is way too crowded, I won't recommend it at all. It looks pretty now but results will be very poor in such sort of method that she used. Veggies need space to grow.

Why would plant anything in a plastic bag with no holes? Your garden is going to be terribly water logged once it rains! Also, silverbeet (or chard) can getting bloody huge. Spinach might actually be a better option in such a small garden, just grow it in a shady spot (like behind the beans) to stop it from bolting (e.g. flowering). Good ideas though and I like the variety you use!

Alice (1 year ago)
Red Deer I may try this but id get my garden fork and give it drainage holes before planting...also ive found the snails can't be bothered climbing up to get at the plants when the are in containers as much as what happens when I plant directly into the soil.

+marble man  Hello Marble man.  I grow potatoes in plastic shopping bags. Gives you a chance to harvest the potatoes from the same plant more than once. Click the link, it's a neat trick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESzW4f3xC4U
marble man (3 years ago)
That is not a solid plastic material, it is weaved shader, exactly the same material as the blue shopping bags found in Ikea. Even if the lady didn't cut holes in it, it is completely fine, because this material will drain water without seeping dirt and nutrients. I fashioned lots of containers out of this material (10mX5m shader sold for shading cars and boats etc), cheep, durable and highly recommended.

Love the trellis idea!  I would keep my tags from the pots and place near the plants.  Helps me remember what they are so those I like I can recommend or plant more next year!  Thanks!

ברק חרמש (3 years ago)
thanks for the lovely video. I have two questions: 1. is the you used 100% compost, or is it mosly dirt which is composted? can't a high percent of compost "burn" the roots? 2. what is the importance of the plastic bag? is it only to shape the garden bed?
Home Grown Veg (3 years ago)
Hello Catherine        Your mini raised bed looks a little overcrowded to me and the cat has certainly got its eye on it and not for picking vegetables. I have just had some good results growing leeks, carrots, dwarf beans, potatoes etc in pots on my patio. Link attached if anybody's interested. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK--IyeT8JQ

+ASMR Gratitude  Hello ASMR. I am not to keen on videos that show a lot of veg being planted in a small space all regimented and looking very pretty reds and greens. I like to see seeds being sown, veg being grown then something being harvested at the end. It usually takes more than one video to show this but it gives you more confidence that what you are being shown, works. Glad you liked my video.
ASMR Gratitude (3 years ago)
Thank you for the link. Your videos make much more sense then her videos do.
