  1. You mentioned Watercress? My FAVORITE micro green. I just love it because I
    can “cut and come again” unlike my other micro greens. Oh how I would love
    to grow a long bean! Not in my climate, but I grew them all the time when I
    lived in Florida.

    I still have to wait a bit for the stores around here to offer these ,,
    great video 

  3. I bought all my plants off of a crack baby.

    it must be pretty warm where you are – a T-shirt! It’s still freezing here
    - can’t wait to get planting outside. Thanks for taking us your shopping
    trip to home depot! Now I want to go get some seeds…although I have more
    than enough already!

  5. Love those plant protectors John. Those pots looked a little small for
    zucchini but I’m sure you will keep them well fed and productive.

  6. John, dont you worry about what the Bonnie company fertilize their plants
    with that is most likely not organic???

  7. I was at the Homedepot last week and I bought a bunch of seeds most were
    like $1.50-$2.50 and i was expecting to pay $20+ dollars for them. To my
    surprise they were all $0.30-$0.60. The early bird gets the worm! I need to
    go back there and get more seeds before they jack up the price during prime
    garden weather.

  8. Mini-green houses. Sweet!

  9. Florida weather is a blessing and punishment,sure the rains feed the plants
    and dilutes the chloramines to a micro ppm,but the hurricanes,tornados,and
    thunderstorms are coming with it.

  10. Super useful episode. Here on the windy coast of Southern England the
    solution was scrap see-through storage boxes because they are heavier and
    you can put weights on top and also peg down the edges so they dont blow
    away. After frost date they just get stacked up until the next winter. The
    whole idea of plastic stackable mini green houses is transforming my
    gardening for sure.

  11. I make mini greenhouses out of 2-liter bottles.

  12. John, though not as tall or cool looking, you could use gallon milk jugs
    as plant protectors. I’ve got 8 ppl in my household, so we go through a
    lot of milk and OJ.

    they can afford the 1 year guarantee because many of their plants are
    cloned. It’s so cheap to propagate them that way.

  14. I would think you only buy products that weren’t genetically modified
    (gmo). Like from rare seeds

  15. IN Australia we have bunnings and it has a perfect plant promise but NOT
    with annuals, tube stock, herbs or cottage range. You must have proof of
    purchase with a receipt.
    I’ve always found that zucchini grows better from seed and its up in a few
    days. Much cheaper way to go,

    instead you should go to a local store

  22. Thanks John, appreciate the info on the plant protectors, they will come in
    handy as I plan on starting a week before out last frost date. Right now
    we still have snow on the ground so it will be a while before any planting
    is started.

  23. Hey John, I really love your Channel , I learn so much about gardening and
    have a lot of fun with it, thank you very much.
    It make me a better prepper and more self reliant.
    Take care Mate and all the best

  24. Just stopped by HD to get seeds. All their plant starts die due to
    frost/cold here I’m houston.


    I <3 you. (:
