    I would think yes, but I never lived there. Should be similar in most ways though.

  5. Thanks to share. Great stuff. Does these tips also be applicable to tropical climates, like in Malaysia?

    my tomato yield was low last year as opposed to the year before where i had them planted close together (1st time) and the yield was high.last year i spaced them and the result was low, dont know why kind feel it was the soil and lack of rain. also how do you feel about miracle grow?

  8. Definetly a thumbs up! I too am a no digger, I mulch mainly with well rotted stable manure which seems to bring good result also agree about digging the “no dig” garden in its first year and that it takes several years to get to full productivity. One question though….. Any tips for growing good brussels sprouts mine all seem to “blow” every year regardless of what I do , I have read that you must plant them in realy firmly , but this has made no difference

    You can, but you will need to have Patience. If you have worms they will dig your garden for you as they go to the top for the mulch. Straw is good but grass clippings even better for vegetables. If it is for your trees then barkmulch or cardboard is needed. You have to wait though or loosen the soil real well and dig in lots of compost initially. For the trees it is good to give a little sprinkle of leaf litter before you add the bark. For vegetables with the grass add compost tea. Cheers :)

    Great video. A couple of questions. I have a garden with about 120 fruit bearing trees. THe soil is almost entirely made up of clay. We’ve traditionally we always tilled the soil every year, but I want to get into no till gardening. Can I use Straw for mulch to condition my soil?
    I guess that’s just one question (-:

    Thanks and greetings from Shiraz, Iran

  18. Sure will post them to you when they are ready, just personal message me your address :)

  19. can i have some lettuce seeds

  20. Cheers

  21. Kudos on the well, I would love to have one here myself. One of my neighbors have one so it should be possible. I am actually in New England just south of Boston, Mass. It has been a really crazy weather year. We had a heatwave very early, so my fruit trees started up, then a cold snap and boom, no fruit this year! Right now I am collecting rain from my shed roof, it is only about 120 sqft, but that will still give me like 60+ gallons from 1 inch of rain!

  22. I am 20km outside Galway city. If your ever in this neck of the woods your welcome if you don’t mind the mess and the noise(kids). Its great how you have a balance with nature. I am having a great time this year as i look for food for the trout i am getting rid of my pests like slugs and catapillars at the same time so i have not used anything bar my bug bucket on the garden this year. Best of luck!

  23. The tomatoes harvested fine (of course, it was my first year), trimming for wind damage doubled for trimming for transplant shock, so the timing meant there was no loss because it was seen as a single event by the plants that needed the trimming at that time anyway!

    Hey no prob, Is my pleasure. It will take a few years for the worms to did through all your soil. But then in time your veg will get bigger and more of them too. Good luck with your project hey :)

  25. No I just have the small hand tools for like house plant gardening I can’t afford the cost of large tools nor the rental cost :( and at the moment where I live if I could purchase a nice chopper like what you used or a pair of good shovels I don’t have the space to store them even though there is a shed out back it’s chuck full of stuff. I just laid down about two or three inches of wet newspaper and a good mixture of compost on top :) thanks for replying love your updates and feedback
