    A little too “toy poodlish” for this landscaper but its a nice mix of color. Some of those same varieties left to grow naturally would be more attractive IMO, nothing like a thick full planting.

    I love your landscaping.I was wondering…. how you keep grass from growing into your beds without any edgers? I dont use edgers in my beds but the grass takes over them!

    Great video…I’m so glad you went through and said the names of the plants and trees. I’ve gone through several of your videos and learned a lot! Keep up the good work! I just realized where you are located…not far from me (Concord Twp). Small world 🙂

    Looks very nice. Japanese maple would cover that electrical equipment nicely. Still nice.

    I can’t help but laugh at Youtube’s Closed captioning. “This is a plant I’d highly consider drawing….and selling.”

    Gee, I was looking for some new canvas work…it also threw in growing something at the end of his bedroom – lol.

    I have really come to love the coral bells in the past year. So many colors available and easy division is a plus too. Great video Mike!

    i dont grow any veges, there are too many wild and domestic animals around that eat them so l don’t bother.

    they are a long time customer so i will be back there on a regular basis 🙂


  25. gregthegardener

    make sure you use older wood, not everything grows from cuttings, if you cut of a bit of branch and new shoots start growing from where you cut it off from the original tree, then you should be able to make cuttings, if not then it probably wont work.

    Greg, do you know the difference between a dead tree and a live tree?

    Answer: The live tree is growing.

    Same thing with humans to.

    Hello

    The first video I saw you did was how to grow plants from cuttings I must say up until now from all the videos I’ve seen on YouTube have not been able to cut and grow them I’m doing something wrong is to do what is up with demand potting soil and Pete Moss sprayed them often with a water bottle and a slowly died is this certainly at the cut it when you’re getting the cutting?


  41. joseffz

    Are you gay, Greg?


  42. unanimous300

    You did a wonderful job sorting and placing the variety of plants in the best areas as always Greg. I liked AuntieDiluvain’s suggestion, it wold be really neat to see the progress from your landscaping projects. Cheers mate!

    Also a good tip to remember is to space your plants far enough apart from each other as many people forget that plants grow in width and not just in length.
