I should have said that we are on agricultural land and very close to the sea on a penisular - hence it is quite raw. thank you

hello. just found your videos and have been catching up loads. I live in North Devon and it's very damp all year round. I have a small veg patch and salad bed and find my biggest enemy is the constant wet and I notice that you seem to manage to have dry land, I wonder if your mulching is helping you and do you recommend I try that. Just to give you some indidcation of how wet it is here. I rarely have to water at all. I'd really appreciated some tips on how to get my garden less wet

I absolutely love your videos Huw. I've currently been binging on them for the past couple of days. I'm a complete beginner, I have a large garden considering I live in London and currently on mat leave so I'd like to do something productive with my kids while I'm off. Off the top of my head I'd say my garden's about 20 by 40ft at least. I've always loved the thought of growing my own food. As we sit here, my garden is almost all grass, with a patio at the front and back. I really want to get going but the truth is I have no idea where to begin. I know it's too late for tomatoes and strawberries etc. What do you think I can do now as a start to get things going and what seeds should I buy for my first crop? I'd really appreciate help, thanks
+Rose Tinted House Thank you so much for you lovely comment:') Oh that sounds like a fantastic idea! Would you be able to send me an email: huw@localfoodinitiative.com and I would love to help you with what you can do in more detail? Best wishes

Question: The previous owner of our home planted a holly bush in a full-shade (no direct sunlight, hours of indirect sunlight) spot to cover an unsightly utility meter which is about 3 feet high. I want to remove the holly bush (so my very young children do not pick and eat the berries) and replace it with something that will grow at least 3 feet tall and produce some food. I am considering blackberries on a trellis. Will they produce with no direct sunlight? If not, do you have any other suggestions? (I am in zone 6, USA) Thank you very much! I absolutely LOVE your YouTube channel, and have started a no-dig garden with your help and the help of Charles Dowding. I am very excited with your upcoming endeavors. I will pray for your school exams! Happy Spring!

Love this video. I just bought a house and have a mini orchard out back (1 cherry, 1 plum, 2 apples, and a hazelnut tree) and the ground under them is all waterlogged and unproductive. I'm planning on turning it into a permaculture food forest and this has given me great ideas of what I can add under and at the edges of the trees. Thank you!

Fantastic, I think we have close the the same weather here in Vancouver so this will be really useful. Our yard is very shady(forest) with a few hours of hot sun in summer ;-)

Thanks so much for your work and sharing it all, brilliant! I've been meaning to ask for ages... your polytunnel looks exactly the same as the one that I inherited (lucky me) on my allotment. It needs a new cover though and some tlc but have no idea where it came from - do you know?

Great job Huw. I learn a lot from your videos , keep it up !!
Great tips, Huw! Thanks for the shout out.
Thanks for sharing HUW . Love using the shade to grow some extra veg :)
Craig Overend (1 год назад)
Great tips. Dark green, and large leaf plants may do well in shade because of the higher chlorophyll content in the leaves and larger surface area to capture more light. At the opposite end I've noticed our Zucchini (Courgette) leaves turn a silvery colour in the full sun when the weather gets hot, I wonder if it may be to reflect some light and heat during the summer.

Very informative video! Swiss Chard is one of my top 5 vegetables to grow. I love it so much and grow in indoors and all year long outdoors. :)
Thank you so much for watching :) Yes it is great!
Lee Ann Steinmetz (1 год назад)
Thanks for this video. Every year my balcony gets less and less sunlight, so this information is very useful for me.
Awesome I am glad! :) Best wishes and thank you for watching

Swiss chard grows okay in part sun/shade, but you'l get a lot less. They bolt quicker too, ironically. Spinach is much the same. Kale goes grow great in partial shade. Another tip - don't sow seeds in partial shade. Make starts in good sun, then transplant to the shady area. Otherwise they'll become leggy and fall over. Shade from for example a fence or hedge can sometimes be an advantage for vertical trained crops like tomatoes - foliage in sun, the pot itself in the shade. Requires a lot less watering this way.
Christopher E. Pineda (1 год назад)
Darkfalz thanks for the tip! I'm definitely going to try this, last year I grew from start to finish in shade and the Kale did great. I bet starting with stronger plants is only going to yield greater results. Kale is worth it. Yum yum! 😂

Good video,  my garden is mostly shared all day and all year.    I never knew so many crops where shade tolerant.  I will try a few,
Good luck!!! :)

when you do the chard video, please tell me how to keep leaf miners off of them. I have yet to get a single leaf from my own crop because of it. thank you.

Thank you so much for watching and commenting!

Great video. I have a tiny backyard that is almost entirely in shade because if my neighbour's overgrown tree. I get some morning sun, but lose almost all of it by noon! I grow in containers and in the "flower beds" in my front yard and on my porch but have really wanted to use the back yard as I have so little space. I will have to give your suggestions a try! Thanks!
California Gardening (1 год назад)
Agreed! Happy Gardening!
H/Nursery, I like your style of farming, Simplistic, low-technology, looks you having bumper yields. I wanna stay with you, and recommend to my friends, I do only backyard farming, But , you guys, Britain, Need massive home-growing , as imported stuff are always so degraded, when you receive, And all your colonies are now independent .
Thank you so much! Best of luck and let me know how it goes! :)
