  1. So they are NOT growing in wood chips they are growing in soil build from
    composted wood chips. 

  2. I’ve seen a guy sieving wood chips and digging from the bottom of the pile
    for his plot as the chips underneath are less used and probably have better
    nutrition.

    I’ve had the same results by using wood chips in my garden. 

  4. Holy CoW! Imagine how much kale chips you can make with these…. lol

  5. The lady was not properly mic’d so it would be cool if you could add

  8. For people with yards AND for anyone who knows anyone who trims trees or
    does woodwork…Let’s keep this wonderful resource out of the dump and get
    it into our yards. :) 

  9. I live in a cold climate, the ground freezes in the winter. Wood chips
    would act as an insulator, how can I get my soil to thaw and warm up in
    time for planting if I had wood chips on the garden.

  10. I don’t understand the difference between waiting three years and just
    getting different size chips including fine texture.

  11. John, can you let us know what type of mushroom spores we can use to add to
    our woodchips? Like I see this on amazon, is this a good option?

  12. why would they use cedar wood chips? cedar takes forever to break down

  13. Wood chips will rob the soil of nitrogen until they are completely broken
    down which can take as many as 3 years and longer for cedar, so it’s not a
    great idea to follow mr guru wannabe’s enthusiastic advice unless you are a
    mushroom farmer or a termite.

  14. Yeah, woodchips are typically free but the problem is you end up with may
    more than you need and don’t have the area store the rest.

  15. Where can you find rock dust? I couldn’t catch the name that she said she
    used, just that it is volcanic? Thanks

  16. seems to me that you can just plant what your going to plant and then put
    the wood chips on top……..:)

  17. so… any combination of wood chips are ok??? or do you have to make sure
    it’s a specific type

  18. hey – are hardwood / deciduous chips preferable over evergreen?

  19. Would my red wriggler worms in my” worm farm” like wood chips?

  20. I’m always looking for ways to increase the yield of my tiny 300 square
    foot garden.

  21. Great video. Rock dust is not the cheapest though. An alternative could be
    to apply diluted humic acid at the end of a brew of compost tea and
    spraying on to the wood which will give a better coverage and feed the
    fungi.

  22. This makes me wonder what if anything can be done with concrete rubble left
    over from building sites. Any comments?

  23. This guy is so funny – such a character. Seems nice, loves what he does and
    is very knowledgeable

    Yep. This is why I use wood chips.
