Here are a few gardening channels from Youtube that I find useful, practical, and informative. There are many other great channels out there that I’m probably leaving out, but these are the ones that I come back to time and time again when I want to learn or review something.
The Gardening Channel With James Prigioni – James Prigioni, and his faithful garden companion, a little dog named Tuck share their journey of growing a food forest in New Jersey. James’s channel has useful information on a very wide variety of topics from pruning, mulching, composting, and much more. James and Tuck are always entertaining and James always brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm. A great resource that makes learning about gardening really fun!
MIGardener – Another great channel that has covered about every gardening topic under the sun. There are several hosts you may see on the videos, but all of them very knowledgeable and informative. I’ve watched videos from them on overwintering peppers, making leaf compost, and much more. I love that they are in a very similar climate to us here in Western PA, so a lot of the videos about preparing the garden for winter are very applicable to our little corner here.
Next Level Gardening – California Garden TV – Yet another channel that has covered an extensive amount of information. Based in California, a very different climate, but he always takes climate considerations into account in all videos and makes sure views know what applies to their locality. The series is laid back, but packs a lot of really useful skills into the videos.
Melissa K. Norris – Modern Homesteading – Melissa K. Norris’s channel has a wealth of gardening information, but this channel goes beyond that. Melissa has tons of information on preserving food, keeping chickens and other animals, cooking, and much more. Melissa also offers a highly acclaimed canning course, although I can’t really endorse because I haven’t yet taken the course.
Daisy Creek Farms with Jag Singh – Jag Singh walks you through his journey of discovery after buying 20 acres of farmland. Like the resources listed above, he covers a wide array of topics from planting fruit trees to constructing cold frames. This channel is yet another library’s worth of information!
Mikes BackyardNursery – I shouldn’t be sharing this channel, a lot of the videos are about how to start a nursery! But Mike’s videos go well beyond that. He touches on topics like propagation, landscaping, and much more. His many years of experience and knowledge really come through, and even though he sells courses, so much of his information he shares for free on Youtube and his website.
These are just a few of the channels that I regularly go to for information, tutorials, and general learning. Am I missing any of the best channels out there? If so, let me know in the comments below.
