I was so excited when we planted our peach tree and it suffered bad with curling leaves, I think it was due to the rain here in Ireland!! Your garden is fantastic, do you ever have to remove soil with all the mulch and compost you bring in?

Great tips! Lovely seeing one of your videos agian, I've been very busy. Quality as always πŸ™‚ I will definitely be using these as I work on establishing a garden, the first at our very own place. There's so much to think about, I've never had this much space to work with! Thank you so much Patrick, for all the inspiration over the years, I now feel like I have a really good foundation, and a good amount of knowledge to draw from as I start this adventure of gardening for self sufficiency (and enjoyment of corse! And all the good food) at our little house in the woods. πŸ˜€

Kereen Bennett says:

Informative as usual Patrick ! Many thanks !

king james488 says:

I don't see how filling a raised bed with fresh soil is any better than digging a hole and filling it with fresh soil… saves money on wood if you just amend your own soil with w.e you would have filled a raised bed with.
if you have grass you should always have decent soil (unless you collect your clippings, stop that.). I can go till any part of my lawn and plant a garden there and it'll do fine.

and soil testing is a waste of money. just add good compost and manure and practice crop rotation and it'll all even out.

hope crews says:

Patrick & Oscar leading the pack as usual. Wonderful information presented succinctly and clearly once again. Thank you as always for sharing!

Brian Snider says:

If you're spending money on things to grow your own food doesn't it make it less expensive to eat?
