  3. Excellent advice on mulching in preparation for winter! Yikes, I can’t
    believe we’re talking about winter already. We should be planting our cover
    crops next weekend, then we’ll probably mulch with leaves in December.

  9. This was very interesting. Thank you.
    I found you through your talk on pine needles on the One Yard Revolution
    video and I was wondering if I could use pine needles, which I have in
    abundance, somewhere in the layering process you describe here. I do not
    have comfrey, but I do have leaves of Robinia pseudoacacia, and I’m
    wondering if they could be of use along with pine needles.
    I live in southern Italy and we rarely get snow, although it can freeze
    several times during the winter months.

  11. Hi Steven,
    This a a good tip. I like t build up the layers on my beds in fall too and
    then work them in come spring.
    I like that you talk about coffee grounds I’ve been collecting them but
    haven’t put it in the garden yet.
    Thanks for sharing!

    thumbs up!

  14. I was inspired by your mention of the deep roots of comfrey to think of
    rhubarb as a good source of nutrients in leaves deriving from its deep
    roots to search about it’s root system (I was reminded that the leaves are
    poisonous) – and found this. It is old so lacking in peer reviewed science
    but rich in knowledge of what works and what doesn’t from generations of
    traditional use. You might find some insights regarding your rhubarb.

  15. interesting stuff Stephen. I have heard both you and Patrick talk about
    comfrey. Is comfrey not a spreading plant? Could you grow it in buckets?
    As always your info is great.

    Cheers

  16. Great Video Stephen, thank you! I wonder if you or anyone has used dry
    corn plants as mulch? I have quite a few at this point.

  19. Great video. I don’t mulch since I live in the Caribbeans but love to use
    the coffee. I use my own coffee. I let it dry and put it on the plants. I
    also use egg shells for calcium and home made compost. Gardening is
    awesome. Thanks Stephen 

  20. Yeah the winter is not too far away at all , I can feel the difference
    already at night with the chill in the air , but it might be because of my
    location it always is a bit colder as the wind blows off the water
