    I am curious to what YouTube channels everyone watches or subscribes to for gardening. My favorites are The Rustic Gardener, Epic Gardening and MIGardener.

    To be honest, I've never looked at a gardening feature on YouTube.

    I don't even look at gardening programmes on TV.

    I did occasionally look at Gardener's World when Jeff Hamilton did it (how long ago was that?) But gave up when he died and the "irritating perennial plant potter" took over. I call him that, as at one time he was in "everything," not just funeral service commercials as he seems to be now.

    I do not watch anything on you tube.
    But I do watch Growing a Greener World, Central Texas Gardener, Garden Smart and Texas Parks and Wildlife on our local PBS station.
    When I first started my garden out back, I found that most of the gardening information available (magazines and TV programs) was aimed at specific areas and none of those areas included the black clay that jokingly passes for soil in my yard...when wet it will suck the shoes off your feet, when dry it will break the tines off of any wimpy garden fork you think will do the job. I use a spading fork.

    youtube is a very usefull resource.
    everything I know is because of youtube.

    hacks for making dinner? KD+ hotdogs!
    how to grow a pizza tree? Just plant the seed and add water!
    who killed jfk? The Illuminati, of course!
    is the earth really round? the earth is flat, moon landing is fake
    what is the meaning of life? producing high-quality cat videos.

    lol... seriously tho, if you ignore the BS you can find some really good info, and some high-quality content, on youtube.

    plus you can click the settings icon and put the playback speed to like 2x, that way you get twice the info in half the time. sounds crazy, but I only slow it down to 1.5x if the host already is a fast speaker.

    YouTube is good for DIY advice for those with little experience, if you avoid those where the person who makes them think their video is "their first step to movie stardom."
