ive pretty much made all the mistakes you pointed out at one point or another in the last couple of years. I am a home grower which means i grow in pots and indoors. Lost my home during the storm and no longer have access to ground planting and growing so to feed my gardening passion i started indoor gardening 5 years ago and i stumbled and learned. But i feel the biggest mistake that people make is not fertilizing and over or under watering for two reasons 1. people assume like you said that plants only need the sun and water to grow so they don't fertilize and Watering. they only look at the top of the soil and assume that the plants need water.
Bin landscaping/gardening for yrs,Mistake= allowing the mobile weekend warrior wanna be Gardner in your yard w loppers/saw,what took yrs 4an evergreen to screen off is now gawn to a beautiful view of another house with siding
My biggest problem was not listed here :( but I have been looking desperately for the answer. I am growing mangos, tomatoes, chilies, avocados, and others, but my problem is infestation of a little, black annoying fly, it just shows on anything I plant and reproduce fast, on my inside plants as well as outside.
I tried vinegar with dish soap, ginger tea, stickers you name it, and nothing works.
My plants don't seem to mind them, but I do because they should not be there. I have little a green room for my inside plants, they are there, also they get in my kitchen sometimes even when is always clean and no food exposure. Some people tell me they are called "fruit flies"
I am just to give up on all gardening just because of these tiny flies. Any idea please I am desperate to get rid of these bugs? Thank you.
I still think i have a pretty green thumb. I kill plants easily, especially if they are not familiar species, but now ive learned. Once i killed like 6 norfolk pines, but now my new big boi ones can recover super well. Now i even am taking challenges like growing the cedar of lebanon (the tree of my nation) and love working with small shrubs and conifers
I put lady bugs in my plants so they eat the aphids.
My biggest mistake was making compost with Callistemon leaves. Even though those leaves smell very similar to eucalyptus, I didn't realize that they kill plants different for them.
Overwatering is so easy to do. I should walk around with my soil moisture meter before watering! I'm going to do this (this is why I have the moisture meter to begin with!) to get a better idea of how often I should be watering certain areas of my garden, as well as my indoor plants. Thank you for the reminder!
I found such an easy way to germinate my seeds without having to wait a week to 2 weeks. Thx for sharing. I have done this for a long time now and grow all kinds of veggies herbs and flowering plants. It's always good to learn other techniques.
thanks alot i need yo know about this because i am going to start gardening
i need your help i want to know that can i grow zinnia lilliput, tulsi,snapdragon,ice plant,and petunia in my garden during early or mid july and i live in himachl so climate is overall cool here but not so frosty where i live please help me and i want to grow from seeds????????
When my soil goes bad I usually don't put more soil in it, so thanks for your suggestion but it will not help me now because I'm lost in the middle of the atlantic ocean, thanks for giving the advice for pouring soil.
My first mistake: Poor or wrong (pH) soil. Also crowding the poor plants.
I am resolved to constantly rearranging :)
Edit: Thought of another mistake I've done. Wasting waaaayyy to much money on expensive soil and fertilizers! Now I just go with selfmade mulch of varying types some sand and lots of cowdung. I already have an overabundance of clay.I purchase rhododendron nutritions because it actually makes sense.
Something I've seen a lot in other beginners, is to much ambition. Filling the whole garden for instant satisfaction then finding themselves over there head and just dropping it all. Better to start slow and allow yourself to make a few mistakes that are easily corrected, dont you think?
He! You've got me going. Thought of one more. Overcaring :) Often the plant can handle some of the problems NATURE cause. All you need to do is provide the right conditions for the plant to succeed. Sometimes a problem can correct itself over time and the plant get better for it. I'm mostly thinking of ornamental plants.
You can never get rid of all insects so focus on damage control. Sometimes they can be contained to one plant if you let natural enemies help out. If you keep exterminating they'll soon be back with a vengence and you have succeeded in killing off the friendly bugs.
Im emotionally attached to my plants as u rightly said. 😆
Is it good to so mango seed in summer. Its about 42°C here in U.P, India. I have already sown 2 seeds, they sprouted and leaves also appeared but the leaves soon drooped and I almost cried. Pls help!
Thank you for the very-informative video! My biggest problem is watering, as sometimes it's difficult for me to water just the right amount at the right time. I also tend to plant seeds too closely, which I intend to correct this season.
How do I get my plant back to good health. I think it maybe due to overwatering or fertilizing? 2 out of the 4 leaves are brown. So I stopped water it for 9 days, but just watered it today. Do I cut the brown ones all the way at the roots or someone said pull them from the roots?
Its white bird of paradise plant.
As a new Gardener I think Mine is a the soil. Not adding a course sand to help with drainage or even coconut coir or perilite if it does not already have any. I did know about compost. I am planning on starting to make some compost behind my store and once we find our new house I am going to start some thier along with a worm farm.
This is the best easy to understand video I have seen about gardening. Over watering. I live in Phoenix AZ and to say I have never in any other state NJ, S CA EVER had as many plants die on me is an understatement. I keep trying, but it is very hard not to just say "FORGET ABOUT IT". THANK YOU FOR THE VIDEO. OVER WATERING GETS MY VOTE.
I started gardening when I was in class 12.it was then when I was growing winter plants during summer keeping them in shade ,thinking it was dying of direct sunlight however the real reason for their disintegration was that those were winter annuals.
For outside you may want azaleas, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, crepe myrtle, roses, dogwoods, redbuds, flowering cherry,. You must check to see that they survive the winter low temperatures. Most temperate zone plants will be ok
I do all of these. I've never fed my plants in the past and getting them sunlight is the hardest in my house. For years I've killed way to many plants but this year I seem to be doing pretty good and I think that with your videos my plants won't die this time. (Fingers crossed)
Thank you for the video!
Is it really need to have 6-8 hours of direct sunlight? Because as you know most of Indians live in apartment culture we may not find proper sunlight in balconies. So what kind of tips you suggest for Balcony gardeners?
About Planting Trees can U all reccomend some fast growing trees? It is possible we might be buying a house that does not have trees in the backyard. Be nice to have something that grows pretty quick for somesort of shade for us Humans and furry baby.
underfeeding is my guess, unfortunatly you still have to feed something like urine even if you are in compost, try using sand as potting soil with compost on top and feeding diluted urine, stay away from clay and some plants dont like much organic matter
Compost alone will burn the roots and plant will not grow only in compost. I need a balanced soil like how we eat a balanced diet. Compost should be about 30 percent, soil 40 - 50 percent and other stuff like cocopeat etc.

Hello Doctor...your tips are very useful. Thanks a lot.
I have one request. In point no. 4 you have shown one plant actually the rotten leaf part of the plant ..I really dont know the name but I love that plant and I have it also but I cant grow it properly. So I need your help.
I'm so happy I found your channel :)
I think one of the mistakes people make is thinking plants doesn't need proper care and attention. Some people buy plants and not water for days and not pot in proper soil, or place in a good place for enough shade and sunlight. I think if you do not have the time or patience to take care of plants then they shouldn't buy it. I hate to see plants suffering for water and dying :(
Also I have a question how come almost all the plants you grow, grow in heavy clay soils when you buy/grow them (I don’t know where you get them from - here in Australia almost all potted plants are grown in potting mix or some form of organic matter
Also about the pest management, (what I’m about to say is a bit controversial so here me out) let’s say if you were to plant 5 different types of tomatoes, all die to pests except 2 so you keep those 2 species and keep on growing them, then you can try cross breeding them other tomatoes to make them resistant, then overtime you develop strains of tomatoes that are resistant to pests - therefore giving you higher yields
Also many weeds that grow in the average newbies garden are actually edible, like for instance the plant you pulled out of the pot, that is called French sorrel and it Taste lemony and tarty and is great as a herb or tart filling
GARDEN TIPS there are actually 3 plants that look like clover, there is clover (also edible) has 3 circular leaves, wood sorrel (also edible) has 3 heart shaped leaves - tastes extremely tarty/citrusy and French sorrel (also edible) looks like wood sorrel except has a bulb witch leaves grow out of - tastes mildly lemony/tarty
So You are saying to take say your flat of Petunias and when u go to planting to plant them in deifferent areas of the area u are planting in. Then in those spaces add a companion ant or guess U could say Vegetable? NOT in one big clump?
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
