Thank you to your Uncle for taking us around your garden. It would be good to get a follow up. Huge plot.

Ahmed Islam says:

That is my uncle. This is probably the only YouTuber that is my relative.

Baltic Homesteaders says:

Really interesting. I always love seeing tour videos because there's always something to learn, some inspiration or an idea to try out. It was really interesting about the stuff on amaranth as I'm trying to grow that this year too. Am really interesting to know more about how it's processed to get the seed out or is it used a different way? And the beds of coriander – wow, it's like the beds of dill folk grow here. Good stuff, look forward to others, hope to do a few myself this year as well.

Sent this video to my dad. He loves gardening if only the Bengali was a bit louder. Why don’t you make some videos in Bengali my dad and the elder generation would love it

Thank you and please thank your uncle for us. I loved how he's recycling so much and using simple free things as fertiliser. Does he leave the grass to sit a bit before putting it down as a mulch or put it straight down and if he leaves it how long for please? I'm never sure which your supposed to do with using grass as a mulch. You know when he was putting the comfrey in the big container of water what was he saying if it was about that please? Does he just use it straight undiluted from there? Does it not smell as much as making a more concentrated comfrey tea to add to water or does he find that an easier way of doing it? He must use a lot of coriander he's growing loads. I never know what to do much with coriander. I need to learn how to grow and cook with fresh spices that we can grow in england. I always tend to use them more out of jars even though I make curries ect. Thank you

Nice pink barrel with swamp water and yes it brings back live in complete dead soil tested

I like the idea of a garden tour. Looking forward to more

Marianne Gibson says:

I love the chimney pot idea – I'm thinking it could help my squash plants stay safer from slug attacks until they're stronger

Gary Finch says:

Great to see the diversity of plants, people and materials – Does your uncle grow chick peas every year Mothin? I thought they needed warmer climates to do well? Interesting that Amaranth is a staple for Bangladeshi people – originally from the America's so guess it was taken along with chillies by the Portuguese? How does your uncle deal with slugs and snails please?
