How to make DIY Ollas -- Low Tech Self-Watering Systems for Plants
 
05:14
Two simple ways to make your own Ollas. These traditional self-watering vessels are low-tech, easy to DIY, and will keep plants watered in the driest conditions. You bury the pots into the ground near plants that need regular watering and then top up the water in the vessel rather than the soil around the plant. The first way to make an Olla takes only a few minutes and the second more permanent DIY takes a day. If you enjoy this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe.

How to prune Thornless Blackberries
 
06:53
Winter is the perfect time to prune thornless blackberry canes and tie in green wood to a trellis. This perennial fruit is one of the easiest to grow in your home vegetable garden. All the care it needs each year is a top dressing of compost/manure and taking out of the dead wood once a year. True to their name, thornless blackberries don't have thorns. That makes them very easy to handle and to harvest from. Most varieties won't send up runners either so they won't take over your garden like their wild cousin, the bramble blackberry, will do. Best of all, their fruit is big, juicy, and delicious. Thornless blackberries are floricane -- meaning the berries grow only on second year wood. The first year the canes will be lush and covered with leaves. They'll overwinter and then the following year they'll put out flowers, and then berries. After the second year the cane will die and needs to be taken out to make space for newer wood. ➤ If you enjoyed this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!) ➤ Have a question or comment?

Honey Harvest: Crushing & Straining Method
 
04:26
It’s been a very busy couple of weeks for me with filling orders over at Lovely Greens Handmade, taking guests on a quirky weekend tour of the Isle of Man, and working in the garden. Something had to give and this time it was my bees. A couple of days ago I visited them for the first time in a couple of weeks and found that one of my colonies had been very busy indeed – not only filling the empty super I’d not taken off the hive with fresh honeycomb, but also building comb into a space that I’d forgotten to leave a frame. Doh! Here's how I crushed the capped comb and strained it to extract the honey.

Easy to DIY Compost Bin using wood pallets
 
08:03
The one thing that's missing and that I desperately need on my allotment is a compost pile. There's just so much waste material I have from clearing the new plot and I want to reuse it rather than get rid of it. Right now I have a plastic compost bin but it's really not cutting it. It takes such a long time for material to break down in mine and I think that's because it's not large enough to create a warm composting environment. I also don't have that many worms so they're not helping with breaking down the material either. I've decided to dedicate a space at the bottom of my new plot for good sized composting units. Using heat-treated wood pallets, I create the first bay in this video and then begin filling it with waste material, grass clippings, and spent coffee grounds from a local coffee shop. Coffee grounds have a neutral pH once they've been brewed and are a great 'green' material to add to compost. In this video: ✽ Building an easy compost bin using wood pallets ✽ Filling it with garden waste that will become compost ✽ Green and brown materials for compost ✽ Composting spent coffee grounds ✽ My new dungarees from Lucy & Yak!

Overgrown Strawberry Patch
 
07:27
One garden job that I do every January is clearing out my overgrown strawberry patch. In summer the plants spread and send out runners in every direction. If you don't keep on top of them, the strawberry bed can turn into a tangled mess. I let my plants go a bit wild in summer but come winter, that overgrown strawberry patch gets tidied. It's a lot easier to do than you'd think! I'm also clearing two rows of strawberry plants this year in order to plant new bare root plants. Strawberry plants need to be replaced every three years to keep productivity up.

Two Ways to plant Strawberries
 
10:43
I had planned to plant bare-root strawberry plants a couple of months ago but as you know, it's been a very cold start to spring. The plants arrived at the end of February and instead of chancing it outdoors, I potted the plants up and grew them on in the greenhouse. It's now finally warm enough to plant them in the garden! I've been given two types of strawberries from Thompson & Morgan to try out -- Mara des Bois, that I've really been wanting to grow, and Just Add Cream, a new one for me. The Mara des Bois have always been destined for the allotment garden but I recently decided to plant the Just Add Cream plants in a strawberry pot. The plants are smallish and I think would suit growing in a container. In this video: ✽ Introduction to Mara des Bois strawberries ✽ Seeing the pink petals of Just Add Cream strawberries ✽ How to plant a terracotta strawberry pot ✽ How to plant strawberry plants in the garden ➤ https://www.thompson-morgan.com/fruit/fruit-plants/strawberry-plants ➤ My second pair of dungarees from Lucy & Yak!

January in the Allotment Garden
 
11:02
January is often a cold, wet, and dismal month. This year it's more like an early spring here on the Isle of Man. With 10°C / 50°F temperatures, the honeybees are flying and it's actually been quite pleasant to get some work done in the allotment garden. This week I manage to manure and cover part of the 'new' allotment garden and also have a look around to see what's rearing it's head this early in the year. The garlic chives are about six inches tall and I already have the first small stems of rhubarb waving their green palms in the wind. It seems like spring arrives a little earlier every year. Let me know what the weather is like in your parts and if you've seen any 'signs of life' in the garden too. Lovely Greens needs your help. More than 20% of my week is dedicated to creating a weekly gardening YouTube video but I'd like to be able to offer MORE.

March in the allotment garden is bright and sunny and full of life. The potatoes went in last week on the first day of spring and at home I'm sowing plenty of seeds for this year's veggie patch. In this video we'll be looking at most of the beds in the garden and I'll be running you through what's in them now and what they'll be growing this summer. Don't hold me to my word though since I'm one of those gardeners who changes her mind at the last minute. Although much of the garden looks bare there are also some delicious crops waiting to be picked. The purple sprouting broccoli is out in full force and I pick another meal full. Also ready for harvest is the sweet and tender forced rhubarb. It's bright pink and is going to make a delicious homemade rhubarb crumble tonight for dinner. Interested in how I make videos?

Planting Early Potatoes the No-Dig Way
 
10:02
Good Friday is the traditional day for planting out seed potatoes. Though it's been a cold start to spring, I kept to this tradition and planted my own just a day later. This year I'm growing a small patch of Red Duke of York First Earlies and am planting them the no-dig method. You can order Red Duke of York seed potatoes online here in the UK https://amzn.to/2pWyy9d -- this is an affiliate link and I'll make a small commission if you end up making a purchase. This is the first time I'm attempting to grow them this way and it involves using mulch to both plant and earth them up. Disturbing the soil as little as possible is the no-dig way. I did have to dig the bed over though to find the dahlia tubers that were still there. With those transplanted, I planted my potatoes just a couple inches deep in the soil. I did this mainly because I'm a bit fearful of a late frost and don't want my spuds being affected. Over the top I spread about two inches of composted horse manure. As the leaves grow, I'll continue adding more mulch to 'earth them up'.

How to Transplant Aloe Vera Babies
 
13:31
If you have an aloe vera plant, you'll eventually find it growing babies. Lots of babies! Aloe vera pups can be removed from the parent plant and then potted on to make new plants and this video will show you how I do it. I have several aloe vera plants that I use for handmade skincare and for first aide. With the annual Seed & Plant Share coming up I decided it was time to pot up my extra aloe vera pups so that I can give them away to others. Aloe vera is well known for its use in treating burns, sunburns, and insect bites. It's also a natural astringent that can be blended into handmade lotions and creams. This Gardening DIY project involves: ✽ Teasing and cutting the aloe vera babies (called Pups) from the parent plant ✽ Allowing the plants to dry at room temperature and out of direct sunlight for 1-2 days ✽ Planting into a potting mix with good drainage -- perlite or grit mixed into multipurpose compost or use cactus compost ✽ Though I do water my plants a little bit after potting on the official recommendation is to wait a few days before watering. ✽ The plants will begin to grow new roots and leaves and can get as big as the mother plant within a couple of years. ➤ If you enjoy this video on how to transplant aloe vera babies please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!). ➤Remember to TURN ON notifications to know when new videos are out ➤ FIND LOVELY GREENS ONLINE LEARN MORE: http://lovelygreens.com/p/about.html INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/lovely.greens/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LovelyGreens FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/lovely.greens.iom/ ➤ NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTION https://www.subscribepage.com/q2d1b7 ➤ ENQUIRIES [email protected] ➤ MUSIC CREDIT Walk In The Park by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)

Tips on planting Bare Root Roses 'Generous Gardener' from David Austin Roses
 
09:57
Work continues in the home garden. This week I show you the completed garden arch and plant bare root roses at its sides. Bare root roses are plants sent with bare roots. They'll come in the autumn and winter and be dormant. You can plant them at any time, except during a really deep freeze. The rose variety I chose is called Generous Gardener from David Austin Roses. This type is a climbing rose with fragrant old rose scent and pale pink petals. What I especially like about them is that they produce beautiful hips that I'll be able to harvest for tea next autumn. Planting bare root roses begins with soaking the plants in water, working manure into the soil, and planting along with mycorrhizal fungi. These pellets help to create bigger and better root systems, naturally. Question for you: Are you planting roses this autumn? If so, what varieties do you have planned and have already growing in your garden? ➤ If you enjoyed this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!) ➤Remember to TURN ON notifications to know when new videos are out ➤ FIND LOVELY GREENS ONLINE LEARN MORE: https://lovelygreens.com/about INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/lovely.greens/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LovelyGreens FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/lovely.greens.iom/ ➤ NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTION https://www.subscribepage.com/lovelygreens ➤ ENQUIRIES [email protected] #howtogrowroses #growingroses #barerootroses

Deep Cleaning the Greenhouse using low-impact and organic cleaners
 
11:58
It's like spring came a month early and with temps of about 12-14C (55-57F) all week it seemed a fitting time to deep clean the greenhouse. Over the winter I've been using it to house my container plants -- strawberries in pots, scented geraniums, and succulents. Their added moisture has made the moss, algae, and overall gunk issue even worse. And have you had a look at the ribbons of algae living in the places where the glass panes overlap? That needed to go. Using low-impact and organic products I give the entire greenhouse the full twice over. From top to bottom I scrape away the gunk, and even use a new trick to clean the algae between the glass. Afterwards I apply an organic spray that will control future algae growth for the months ahead. You can get it online if you're interested in using it for your greenhouse or poly tunnel.

How to make Handmade Lemongrass Soap
 
09:03
Make Natural Soap with Lemongrass Essential Oil This simple recipe for handmade lemongrass soap requires only four main oils, natural pigment in the form of oxides, essential oil, and a few other ingredients and materials. It's also a palm-free soap recipe so you can rest assured that the ingredients are as ethical as possible. Making cold-process soap is quick but there is a cure time of four weeks before you can use the bars. During that curing time, the extra water from the recipe evaporates out, creating hard and long-lasting bars. More details on this recipe and links to get ingredients: https://lovelygreens.com/make-natural-lemongrass-soap/ RECIPE UPDATE -- in the video, the amount of water in oz shown in text is incorrect. It's not a big deal and you can still make the soap with that amount of water. It's best to use 196g / 7 oz though ➤ If you liked this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!) ➤Remember to TURN ON notifications to know when new videos are out ➤ FIND LOVELY GREENS ONLINE LEARN MORE: http://lovelygreens.com/p/about.html INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/lovely.greens/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LovelyGreens FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/lovely.greens.iom/ ➤ NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTION https://www.subscribepage.com/q2d1b7 ➤ ENQUIRIES [email protected] Music credit: Travel Light by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/

How to relocate a Hive of Honeybees
 
04:31
I recently had to move one of my colonies of honeybees from one town to the next. Since it was more than 3km away, the method is straightforward and I show you how I did it in the video. I keep honeybees on the Isle of Man, an island nation between England and Ireland. My bees are smaller than the average honeybee because they have 'British Black' bee ancestry. That's why they're more black than yellow too! ➤ If you enjoy this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!) ➤Remember to TURN ON notifications to know when new videos are out ➤ FIND LOVELY GREENS ONLINE LEARN MORE: http://lovelygreens.com/p/about.html INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/lovely.greens/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LovelyGreens FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/lovely.greens.iom/ ➤ NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTION https://www.subscribepage.com/q2d1b7 ➤ ENQUIRIES [email protected]

In the Garden: Building a Blackberry Trellis
 
05:49
For two years I've been growing thornless blackberries along the bottom of my allotment garden. They really need to be supported though so I've created an inexpensive support frame using timber, wire, and eyelet screws. The project took me about an hour and a half and the end result will create a firm foundation for my thornless blackberries to grow on. Each vertical support is 47" tall with 35" above ground. The first eyelet screw is placed 3" below the top of the post and the second is 25" down. Coated steel wire is strung between the posts and I'll be tying the blackberry canes onto it with string. ➤ If you enjoy this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!). ➤Remember to TURN ON notifications to know when new videos are out ➤ FIND LOVELY GREENS ONLINE LEARN MORE: http://lovelygreens.com/p/about.html INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/lovely.greens/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LovelyGreens FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/lovely.greens.iom/ ➤ NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTION https://www.subscribepage.com/q2d1b7 ➤ ENQUIRIES [email protected]

February in the Allotment Garden
 
10:26
February in the allotment garden can be wet, windy, and bitterly cold. Still there are things to do around the plot including looking for storm damage, covering early rhubarb for tender ‘forced’ stems, and even spotting the year’s first frog spawn. In this video I show you around the allotment on a very windy day. It was also a balmy 10C so actually very pleasant to be outside. February always feels like the cusp of spring but I know all too well that mild temperatures can turn frigid within minutes. I’m starting the gardening year slowly and not sowing anything that could suffer in a cold snap. QUESTIONS for you: 1. Do you have any ideas for protecting the frog spawn from freezing? 2. What would you do with the apple tree? Move it or train it to a lower height?

Starting a Vegetable Garden
 
12:16
I've been sharing videos from my allotment garden for the past couple of years but in today's piece I'm going to show where it all began. I've put it together to show the story of my vegetable garden but also to inspire new gardeners to start their own. I took my current plot back in 2015 and that first year I started to work it alongside my old plot. YES, I used to have another plot. You'll get to see it in this video too. I started slowly by suppressing weeds with polythene -- thick black plastic that's reusable and essential as part of our allotment association's plot maintenance. You can get here: USA: https://amzn.to/2FH6HC7 UK: https://amzn.to/2OAUB1c That first year I peeled it back gradually and planted a few things. It was only in the second and third years that my new vegetable garden starting taking shape. I built small raised beds, created wood chip paths, installed a blackberry trellis, and built a garden pond. I also converted my gardening space into a no-dig garden. Gradually the plot evolved to what it is today. Work still continues, especially with the new half-plot and home garden. If you're interested in seeing those spaces transform, follow their progress this year. Interested in how I make videos?

Winter Solstice in the Garden: Christmas potatoes, planting garlic, and a visit to a Neolithic Tomb
 
10:53
The Winter Solstice is the shortest day and longest night of the year. Also the first day of winter, it's the traditional time to plant garlic and I've kept some of mine back to do just that. I've also decided to harvest my Christmas potatoes a few days early and to head to the allotment to pick some veg to make a meal out it. Purple brussels sprouts and kale will do! Then at the end of our time in the allotment I'll take you to a very special place here on the Isle of Man. Cashtal yn Ard is a 4000 year old stone tomb in Maughold. Places like this have been aligned with the rising or setting sun on the winter solstice making this day a special time to visit Neolithic sites. We can't be sure what their builders were thinking but the predominant theory seems to be of the symbolism of rebirth and new beginnings. In any case, we should all be celebrating the slow return of daylight -- it means spring is on her way. ➤ If you enjoyed this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!) ➤ Remember to TURN ON notifications to know when new videos are out ➤ Have a question or comment?

Natural Rosemary Soap Recipe + DIY Instructions
 
13:10
Rosemary is not only a delicious culinary herb, it also has therapeutic skin properties. One of which is that it's anti-bacterial and can help treat skin that suffers from pimples and acne. Combined with oil pulling cambrian blue clay it makes an excellent soap for oily and problematic skin. This is how I make natural rosemary soap. It's made with natural vegetable oils, is free from palm oil, and that beautiful clay gives it a pretty blue colour. Rosemary essential oil is what scents it but there's also fresh garden-grown rosemary for added texture and interest.

Bad Beekeeper + Loads of Honey
 
07:26
I've been a busy bee these past few weeks and haven't been out to visit my colonies. This is my first inspection of Primrose and Bluebell in a few weeks and a chance to bring the honeybees more frames to build on. It's also an opportunity see if there's any honey to extract.

Butternut Squash Pie Recipe: the best 'Pumpkin Pie' you'll ever taste
 
02:49
I’m about to shatter your childhood illusions. You know those creamy pumpkin pies you chow down into each Thanksgiving? Well, it turns out there’s no real “pumpkin” in them in at all.https://www.youtube.com/edit?video_id=LDP_vWCobCY&show_mt=1&ar=1 Recently, I was researching the best pumpkin varieties for eating when I decided to look into Libby’s pumpkin purée. It has great flavor and is what most people use to make pumpkin pie. What variety is it that they use though? I was more than a little surprised to find out that it’s actually a squash. The Dickinson Select squash more closely resembles a butternut squash than a traditional pumpkin. It’s a trademarked variety so you can’t buy seeds to grow it yourself. That got me to thinking though — what would a pie made with butternut squash taste like? It turns out that it tastes exactly like a delicious pumpkin pie.

Creating and Resurfacing Wood Chip Garden Paths
 
10:31
Two years ago I made one of the best decisions ever -- to cover my pathways with landscaping fabric and wood chips. Not only does it create a non-slip walkway in my garden but it's stopped perennial weeds from springing up. It's saved me SO MUCH TIME. Pre-wood chips I had to weed not only my beds but the pathways too. I've done very little maintenance since then so it's time for some fresh wood chips. With a fresh delivery at the allotment I used a sunny winter afternoon to resurface the paths. It only took a couple of hours but the effect is stunning. See the before and after of my wood chip garden paths and see how you too can create your own. I give tips on how I first created my paths and show how I spread new wood chips on. ➤ If you enjoyed this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!) ➤ Have a question or comment?

It's that time of the year again -- honey extracting time! I have a video from a few years ago showing my process ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufLnOEoaN-c&t=9s ) but I thought I'd take you on a tour around the Honey Shed. Extracting honey is a messy business so it's great to have a dedicated space for it. This video shows you the set-up and introduces some of the tools and methods used in extracting honey from the honeycomb. Please leave me comments or questions below.

#edibleflowers #herbalism #gardening Calendula flowers (Calendula officinalis) are an easy to grow herbal treatment for skin complaints ranging from eczema to minor cuts and sores. It’s safe and effective and there are many studies showing how calendula extract helps speed up the healing of minor skin injuries. There is also some research into its use in anti-aging. All the more reason to use calendula flowers as a natural medicine and skincare herb. In this video I share how I grow calendula flowers, how I harvest them, and how I use the petals to make calendula oil. Oil infused with calendula can be used as a skincare ingredient, as a safe herbal remedy, and even mixed into salad dressings and consumed. That’s how safe calendula is – you can eat it.

December in the Allotment Garden
 
07:09
December is cold, brown, and soggy and the allotment garden is much different than it was just a couple months ago. Despite the gloom, there’s still winter veg to be picked including turnips, beet root, and carrots. There are also hearty greens on the menu including crispy oriental greens and kale. While it’s a bright and calm day I also decide to replace the mouse-guards on the beehives with entrance blocks. It’s been very cold at night and the restricted entrance will help keep warmth inside the hives. The children’s book I mention at the beginning is Stone Soup and you can find it on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/2iFCoUN It’s also available on Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2Anr8CR This video focuses on ✽ Picking winter vegetables ✽ Preparing the New Zealand Yams (Oca) for harvest ✽ Putting entrance blocks into the beehives ➤ If you enjoy this video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe (thank you!) ➤Remember to TURN ON notifications to know when new videos are out ➤ FIND LOVELY GREENS ONLINE LEARN MORE: http://lovelygreens.com/p/about.html INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/lovely.greens/ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LovelyGreens FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/lovely.greens.iom/ ➤ NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIPTION https://www.subscribepage.com/q2d1b7 ➤ ENQUIRIES [email protected] MUSIC CREDIT Walk In The Park by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/
