Is this your Yard? Beautiful
Where do u find these smart pots?
I have tried container gardening in the past, but never knew what soil to use or how to feed the containers. Knowing the right size container to use also helps. Does this soil mix drain well? You didn't add any perlite.
Wow! Watching all these gardening videos, including YOURS< really get me excited to start gardening here at my home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have already started seriously at gardening a couple of weeks ago.
My yard isn't big, being in an urban residential area of Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia's capital and largest city of few million people). But I have a front yard, a smaller back yard, and outside of my home gate is a piece of public land by the main residential road, all my neighbors are already gardening on the public land by the roadside opposite their houses. I will garden at the public land opposite my house too.
Couple of weeks ago I started planting BORNEO EGGPLANT, OKRA, MALABAR SPINACH, SWEET POTATO (I am focusing on the leaves which is delicious as a veggie) and BRAZIL SPINACH.
Of course, much earlier I planted SCREWPINE (an aromatic leaf used in many Malaysian dishes), LEMONGRASS (used a lot in Asian cooking), VIETNAMESE CORIANDER (used in Asian cooking), CUBAN OREGANO (we use it as a seasoning for spaghetti sauce), CHIVE, TURMERIC (we use the leaves for cooking aromatic), SUJI PANDAN/Dracaena angustifolia (for its green coloring for food especially desserts), CURRY LEAVES (for curries and many other dishes), KAFFIR LIME (we use leaves like Americans used bay leaf), NONI (I harvest leaves as a veggie, sometime I eat fruits for medicinal), KADOK/Piper sarmentosum (as veggie/salad), TORCH GINGER (aromatic for cooking) and PISONIA (leaves used as veggie).
Today I just ordered from Lazada Malaysia the following: SWISS CHARD, ZUCCHINI, CURLY KALE and ITALIAN DINO KALE. I am so gardeningly excited!. Your video is very helpful and informative. Tqvm.
Can’t afford all this special soil. Need to scale back to “ what u can buy at Wal Mart or Lowe’s”.
Containers are they made of canvas?
Does your family eat everything you grow? What do you do with the excess food?
What do you recommend the drip irrigation or microspray irrigation?
can you advise what is the name of the container u are using, i have not seen it in Sydney Australia. Thanks
Thanks, I like your video. I have learned from watching it.
man, I wish you was my mom or grandmother. My grandmother was the only one in my family that had a garden but because she was so selfish, self centered and narcissistic she refused to teach me how to garden. Fast forward 10 years later and i'm just now really trying to garden.
Good Day !!! Inspiring video. I would like to know the cost of these grow bag containers
Great advice! Im going these ideas to practice at home this season! Starting my own video ms but mostly to keep track of what i do! Thanks!!
Don't you wish your neighbors living next door were as nice and helpful as this lady.
You have made all things possible! Thanks
Oh this information is Fantastic and the drip looks easier than I thought, I really appreciate your personality and helpful fun videos, growing vertically is just what I need for my very small backyard. Take care
Thank you for this informative video . One sees , what you do , you do it with love . That´s why you are so succesful in what you do . I enjoyed watching this video .
Where can I buy those kinds of bags wow I like that idea
Started a container garden this year.Not as fancy,but fun!
Yeah you couldn't be more right plastic stinks.
This is my first year using smart pots and I'm a litter concern about put them in a pool of water so I'm going to try putting a medium plastic pot plates ( 4 for $1 from Dollar tree) filled with Peat moss in the bottom of the smart pot and then fill with the rest as usual with soil. I hope this will work. I'm pretty new gardening but most of what I have learn is from your videos. Thanks.
I love that little backyard garden. Can't wait to buy my own house with a backyard space to plant.
I add soil moist to the soil helps retain moisture
Camera person is having a lot of trouble controlling their camera lol
I put 3 tomatoes in a small pot and when the roots came out I put a bigger pot under the tomatoes. Here we use gates in the balcony and the doorway and I decided to put them in my balcony and let it go over the gate and it started to go down the gate. This was a experiment but it worked great. Since I'm in a wheelchair now I don't have to get some to one get my tomatoes I just put my hand through the gate and pick them myself. June will be a year and it gave me all year round since we live in the Caribbeans. .
How long would one expect to wait to harvest the watermelon varieties you potted?
If you want them to absorb the nutrients you should be PH penning your water. Best PH is between 5.6- 6.0. And when your 2-3 weeks from harvest you should be flushing the soil from salt and nutrient build up. for freshest and tastiest results. And look up a company called Mykos for Micro bacteria it’s the best! Thanks for the video and keep it up lil momma.
Where you buy the bag an soil. Is a good idea.
Are there alternatives to marigolds to pair with the vegetables? My husband tends to have asthma flare up around marigolds.
Your video is very helpful. I am new here.Beautiful garden. Nice to make friends and I will watch more your videos to learn from you. 😃
essas plantas foram plantadas com tanto amor que com certeza vai produzir com abundancia sussesos pra voce
1st. Comment. WHY can't I find a girl like you in real life??? 2nd… Aren't those the most EXPENSIVE Zucchini, Watermelon etc… When all is said and done???
Hi. In your raised beds I can sometimes see a few red spiral shaped piping used as bottomless (I presume) containers. What are that kind of pipe called? And where do you get hold of it? Kind regards, Mademoiselle du Sfonctionelle
Just the video I was looking for. I live in a small apt. in L.A. but I've always wanted to try growing veggies and fruit. Thanks!
That is not a pitchfork, it is a garden fork, A pitchfork has longer, thinner tines and is used for shifting hay/straw.
I am here because of the Rustic Gardener. This NJ'er is happy to find you!
Such a warm personality you got there. The way you speak is very encouraging
Aaaahhh I need this leaf mulch
Thank you for this video! I was so impressed by the Smart Pots that I went to their website and bought some. I forgot to use your coupon code though.
Does mold grow under the bags if it is constantly moist and doesn't move?
Thank you so much! I love that you are mindful of those that don't own homes making this a possibility! 😘😘😘😘
Hi! Can banana be planted there or avocado?😊
I grew my 5.91 pound California State record tomato in a 30 or 40 gallon smart pot. my plant was limited to 3 feet high and fertilized weekly. given compost tea. started early like in February in a greenhouse. Mycos and azos help as well. be prepared to spend the moolah if you want size. my seeds are also pedigreed from award winners. it was the 15th largest tomato in 2018 in the world. it was 2 feet around.
Cali Kim quick question. If I have a bunch of worms in my raised bed already are the worm castings neccessary to get? Have you ever put worms in your containers? Thanks!
We are running "smart pots" for the first season ever, decided on 50 and 80 gallon white versions. We needed far more soil than I ever imagined, what would you suggest as a additive to our soil mix to ensure it does not dry out too quickly, I cannot decide between vermiculite,perlite,coco or a mix of all…From your exp with these pots what do you recommend?
The cheaper to buy organic
What's the warm tea watering recipe? Thanks for the tips, great video.🌱❤️
HI Kim..do I need drip irrigation to grow fruits and veggies in Miami, Fl?? Its usually very humid here..Also…last year, I planted cantelope seeds that grew like crazy, until the whole plant died before it grew any fruit.I dont know why that happened and would like to know why it died?? Also, when u grow a cantelope or watermelon plant, does it stay alive forever, or will it eventually die out? Thank u…!!
so what do you do once the items are growing? how do you support them with the wire cages? any follow up videos?
How DO u keep critters out of your veggie pots??
No offense but what I never see is anyone actually MOVING those containers into another location. Do the 'handles' really STAND UP to being 'moved'?
Would have liked to see how you added the connection of drip from one pot to another
Awesome Video! You are an Expert; and SO Graciously generous; with your knowledge. In what Zone are you located please? Thanks A Million & Perpetual Success to You!👐😄❤👑
I planted a tomato tree on balcony but it's not getting enough sun. Will artificial lights help.
Great video as always, Cali, but I can't help thinking that those pots would be the ideal situation for using ollas instead of drip irrigation. Have you ever tried using ollas? I think they would work better.
very nice ,I'm sitting in my garden drinking coffee after 8 months of winter in Michigan, there only to season here, winter and summer nothing in between!
If you do this much container gardening, what do you do with the soil at the end of each growing season? I've struggled with finding enough places to hide it. I've also tried making my own compost tea and re-activating the soil by watering with it. Buying new bags of fresh soil for all the containers each year starts to get impractical especially when living in the city.
New urban garden any suggestions https://youtu.be/f6gBim6C6N0
I am very interested in seeing how the watermelons turn out! 🙂 Thanks for sharing 🙂
Loving your enthusiasm. I’m inspired. I’ve planted my first containers. I’ll see how it goes.
Another great video. Keep up the good work….
Thanks for sharing your container video I also plant in containers and I have been successful with planing blueberries in black bag containers as I’ve shown in my Channel. Thanks for sharing 👍👍
حلو عمل جيد
Hi! I live on the big island of Hawaii and I’m starting to plant some large veggies in pots, it’s my first time doing this so this video is very helpful Thankyou!
Love your video. I’m into gardening. I plant every year. Like how you explain about growing your plants
I've a feeling CaliKim attends church for the right reasons.
Nice video !!! Good work and information. Very well explained . Thanks
I just love your videos. Great advice and really great explanations of how you do things. Also, your voice is really soothing and easy to listen to.
How about lavenders? I heard lavenders can repeal bugs too?
your leaf mulch … just ground up leaves ? great video
can you introduce more info for the small plants? call miracle?? many thanks
Awesome video and great info! Can't wait to start my own garden!
Hi Kim. May I ask how you keep your container grown plants from falling over in storms/winds? I'm in Philadelphia, PA and I've woken up to a massacre at least twice so far.
Thanks for the video CaliKim!
I love everything about this! And, look at those Collard greens back there!😳 Love the fabric pots…so happy I found your site….I will have to do all my vegetables in containers, due to space & ground has so much rock. This video is so helpful, thank you for sharing! You are beautiful, also.🌺
Can wood chips be used instead of the leaf mulch?
I just started gardening and I love these videos! But I kept hearing you say that warm tea is good for your plants so I watered my plants with warm tea… I've only just realised it's 'worm tea' in an American accent! Oops!
Beautiful garden,I have garden too in my rooftop..
"Easy on the eyes Kim".Teriffic onfo. Thank you.
I LOVE YOUR BRAIN GIRL!
Any of you guys order from England? I was wondering how much the import tax is x
We live i England we are unable to get the Worm castings or Tea..If any of you guys from England have found a place i can order please could you leg me know x
I love your planting .oh I love you 💞
Great video! Very inspiring!
saw this old video and love this method..thank you for your info
It's so sad that I live in a place where potting soil/ mix is unheard of , tried to create my own . Anyway you are just amazing
This is very helpful in backyard gardening!
0:40 instead of turning into a root ball, they turn into a root ball ….. huh?
Watching for a couple years and I am inspired by your advice and information. Question: Are you at liberty to divulge the name of the smart pots that you use. I find them quite easy on the eyes. Thank you…
Such an awesome video. Switched to bags after watching this. They're so much easier to store, lighter to move and my plants seem happy – most of all I seem to have solved my "overwatering problem" too.
Wonderful garden 💚💚💚
I really enjoyed the photography. Kudos to TheCameraGuy!
i like aubergine on george foreman grill , brushed both sides with olive oil . sometimes melt some cheese on , sometimes not
