These really are the top gardening mistakes made by first time gardeners. Great tips!

buckstarchaser says:

I couldn’t tell that the pumpkins were crowded 🙁 I bet they were a small variety anyway 🙂

The diging down technique with the organic material tip and “if you don’t feel moisture add water” she gave should cover both soil types, wouldn’t you think? Covering both types individually would be a much longer and confusing explanation in this brief clip for beginners I think.

My dad is a top gardener and he never makes mistakes. unlike my friends dad who is a builder.
Sad people, who would want to be a builder when you could be a gardener.

What kind of dumbass would grow pumpkins, except some Halloween geek

AntiPrankPerson says:

YES! Over-watering! You are so correct!!! WOW, this youtube is pretty cool!

donze52 says:

the worst mistake is not to much water, as I use only rain water and save it till I need it.
the worst mistake is using pesticides.
I use a bug repellent for my plants.
I use wild gourd leaves and make a tea to spray on my plants. Nothing in the bug world eats wild Gourd leaves so your plants are safe.

..people make mistakes. It may not be a mistake, but someone may have a better way of doing something. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable when it comes to growing vegies, but there is always someone who knows more. I am open to suggestions and trying new ways. If the new ways work better, I employ those new ways. Open minds allow us to grow and continue to learn.

ToyMaster83 says:

I like using my insect friends to eat the bad insects. I do not use organic or chemical pesticides any more. I promote the good bugs in my garden to eat them– or use safe traps, like beer traps or coloured plastic in water to attract certain bugs or my hands to catch them. The BEST way to fight off bugs is to have healthy plants as they produce their own natural pesticides. Growing in nutrient rich compost produces REALLY healthy plants. There is nothing like it.

donze52 says:

Your wisdom is evident, but hope you consider wild gourd tea, as it does not kill bugs but rather stop them from eating your crops. always test on one type of plant to make sure of no problems. but I have in my years found nothing better as a bug repellent for plants

Does anyone use Growbags (Combination of coco peat and/or husk chips) to grow Tomato’s? Growbags are 100% natural and environmentally sustainable, used widely in the industry due to the benefits of the product for Tomato growing…

Help protect our environment, use environmentally friendly products.

@HoboCabbage I’m thinking the same……..

There are no mistakes….only learning opportunities .

Those pumpkins look large enough for my needs. I don’t need a pumpkin bigger than a volkswagon. 🙂

good info thank you

I believe she is wrong about the number of pumpkin plants in that bed resulting in smaller pumpkins. If you are going to plant that amount of pumpkins then what should be done is making sure the required nutrients are there now for that number of plants. Adding more compost, regular applications of compost tea, etc. I recommend people to always learn from various schools of thought and experiment for themselves.
