  1. Yes, in a good environment herbs will self sow, and produce runners! You can build a massive herb garden without much effort once you know how! My advice is to plant companions together for optimum results!

  2. Great video! Thanks for the advice.

  3. Nice Herbs…but check out vodeos on Giant tomatoes, eating Ghost Pepeprs and Fun 6’6″ Pepper guy on my You-Tube.

  4. Cool

  5. Very nice, it is also very much informaton video thanks to all

  6. The new Food Safety Modernization Act will eventually outlaw private gardens. Soon only the giant multinational corporations will control all food and water.

    Help raise awareness about this issue before it’s too late!

    As far as pests are concerned, there are only a few you need to worry about with most herbs. Be on the lookout for red spider mites and aphids particularly. If you plant mints, check periodically for rust. You can mix a little castile soap with water and use a fine sprayer to wash off your herbs periodically to prevent these common pests.

  8. If you start reading thins you CANT stop .Once ther was a little girl named Cecilia.She was a little 7 year old who got strangled and raped by a man =.If you dont post this to 15 other videos you will see CCecilia standing at the end of your bed with a knife and she will kill you
    You have to do this by midnight or you will be dead

  9. I grow:
    Cress, Basil and Parsley. Yay!!!
    I have LOADS OF CRESS.
    I also have loads of Mustard, but that’s not a Herb.
    Nice video, I’ll rate this 5 stars.

  10. i wear a chinese coolie hat it works great but i look like a commy… o well

  11. I don’t see why you’d get flak for saying this; I was gonna say the same thing. ‘Course I went to school for Horticultue/Landscaping, and am an urban homesteader, so I just hope she doesn’t wear those to till in. If so, then I’m certain her toes are prosthetics.

  12. I wear a cowboy hat or my riffleman’s hat (resembles an Amish hat w/ one side pinned up) to keep the sun at bay.

  13. I use a hunting knife for this task. It’s way easier than a shovel.

  14. Make sure if you do this you only use ONE teaspoon of miracle grow! It has to be very diluted. Too much will cause burning and even more stress on the plant.
    1 teaspoon for 5 gallons of water. Also make sure you keep the bucket covered if you have pets so they don’t drink the water.

  15. One thing I do when transplanting plants from one area to another is this:
    I fill a 5 gallon bucket with water and put one teaspoon of miracle grow in the water and make sure it’s disolved well. Then place the plant or plants into the bucket and leave them for a few hours or even overnight.

    I do this with all my plants I move and it really reduces shock. I did this with some irises one spring, and they bloomed that summer!

  16. i’ve started an information blog about veggie gardening, self sufficiency and sustainability…thought some of you guys might be interested,,,

    if you are, give me a yell :) e-mail my youtube account

    cheers guys

    Didn’t need a shovel… that’s funny because she didn’t. If you laughed like I did, you probably like gardening humor. If so, check out “WE GROW TOGETHER”

  18. She didn’t need a shovel to dig that plant up. She could have dug it out with a small transplanter or a cultivator which would separate the roots from the dirt easily.

  19. I have basil which looked like a pile of dead leaves and they weren’t even 1cm (1/3 inch) tall. Now the basil is 30cm (12 inches) tall and is the best growing plant I have. I bought the basil for AU$0.10. Looking in bargain bins at the nursery really pays off.

  20. This lady has lots of videos in Youtube. In all of them (at least in most I watched) she never wore the correct shoe to work in her garden. When working with light – heavy to somewhat dangerous tools, we need to wear PROPER SHOES (boots, tennis shoes etc) to prevent getting hurt from tools falling in our feet. Not to mention it will also protect our feet from getting dirty. I wonder how many hours a day she’ll spend cleaning her nails….better invest that time to air the compost bin…

  21. Not to me…it keeps the sun off your neck and out of your eyes…I live on the Coast and if you garden,,you absolutely need either this stye of hat or a bandana and cap..

  22. caring wombman
    bless her

  23. wrong tool and she did alot of wrong things
    no shoes ,glooves and water .

  24. Most herbs are well hard, they can take a bit of push and shove :-) I’ve planted what looks like dead root stock in the past and been most surprised!
