YouTube is such an amazing source of knowledge so I'd like to share my favorite gardening channels that have been such a source of inspiration for me.
From what I understand this garden is located in the Chicagoland area. They're also Zone 5 which gives me so much hope for my own gardening possibilities. I can't believe how early they have stuff coming up, WOW! They have a small area to garden in and check out their amazing yield! Its awe inspiring. I've been watching these videos for about six months now and I learn something really interesting every time. Probably my number one favorite garden channel.
Garden Answer was one of the reasons I got into succulents. Her succulent arrangements are adorable! I also really love all of her DIY projects like making planters out of literally anything and I liked her recent video about making a rain gutter planter. She makes it all seems so easy. One thing I've noticed lately is that she is obviously an employee for Proven Winners which make me feel a little - meh - but hey, we all have to make the dollars so its totally cool. If you want to avoid those videos, they tend to be the ones where she's planting flowers into containers.
That theme song, amiright? Too funny. I am partial to this channel I think because they're located in Wisconsin so obviously it will work for my area. I loved her videos on vermicomposting and if you're interested in composting with worms I would watch those videos, they're a great starting off point. This one gets the award for sheer quantity. SO MANY videos to watch.
These are videos that don't necessarily count as gardening channels but I still have found useful in lots of different ways when it comes to the garden.
Ok, so April doesn't really do garden videos at all. I just think I want everyone to know about her because I think her videos are fantastic. I just think she's an amazing role model. If you have any interest in building anything watch and be inspired by April's carpentry skills!
These folks live off grid and their videos are really interesting. I appreciate how real/raw the videos are. They know its not an easy life but its the life they've chosen and I think thats really commendable.
I love this channel for so many reasons. Its basically all DIY videos (not too many plant related ones). I think what strikes me about the videos is that its very clean and white and tidy and so much about gardening is not that at all. So I like the idea of incorporating some clean lines and modernity with plants. He just put out a video on how to make a raised bed and he put chicken wire under the bed and for some reason it never occurred to me to do that and of course I have animals coming through the bottoms of my beds all the time and just never thought about the chicken wire. Of course! Next time.
Let me know what your favorite gardening YouTube channels are!
