    For Americans: Home Depot has bulk pricing on lots of 10 five gallon "Homer buckets" for about $3.50 each, by on line order with store pickup.

    Thank you so much. The adaptability of your garden techniques to my sore knees and shoulders is why you're my garden guru! And Molly, of course!

    The "Morrisons" that you talk about–is that a store in your area?  Do they sell online to the US?

    First time I've seen anything for the disabled to garden!  Thank you!  I am partially disabled, I use a wheelchair for anything longer than what it would take to get from a car into a store from disabled parking, (have trouble getting up, then can't walk very far or stand) so I use a scooter or wheel chair to garden, I have bad arthritis, in my legs/knees and in my hands–gripping gets painful, but I pace myself.  Last year I had to pay my nieces to do most garden stuff because I cannot get to the ground level, so I built 5 cheap raised beds to use this year. I paid a teen ager to fill them with compost,  and use him for the stuff I cannot do but because of the raised beds once set up, I can dig, weed, plant all by myself this year from a sitting position.  I started everything from seed this year inside, all by myself,  except 1 onion set and the potatoes.  From watching your videos I will be able to expand on my space by making some planting bags from weed block fabric.  Gardening has helped me eat healthier, I can, freeze and dry everything, it's organic, while I can't get around much better, I do think I wouldn't be getting around at all I wasn't doing this–healthier food, with no GMOs, and preservatives/chemicals gives me more energy and I feel better over all.  So thank you–your information is invaluable.

    Wonderful video…..thank you! Most people tend to think of "disabled" gardeners being in wheelchairs. This is not always the case (in mine it is a muscular/strength problem especially in my arms and hands plus the ususal "age related" problems 🙂 I meant to comment on your video about using a matchstick for picking up seeds….genious!

    I have mobility issues due to an old back injury and also inflammatory arthritis resulting in pain,weak fingers, hands and wrists.. so all my gardening takes place sitting or lying on the floor… My very best 'tools' are large rubber grip hand rake,hand tiller,hand fork and trowels.. I got from Aldi for £1 each and some ratchet secateurs which take the pressure off as my grip is so poor… and a camping mat to lie on… I have a lightweight lawn mower and an electric large grip handshear/trimmer (bosch isio) which is brilliant for keeping shrubs in check and lawn edging.. I keep all my tools in a bucket that gets dragged around the garden with me.as does a second bucket for rubbish… I clear up as I go in case I have to stop.. so I don't have to fetch and carry.. I use pots too… because it is so easy.. but I also have two areas at the bottom of the garden for veg … I dig in nutrients and compost as I plant with a hand fork..The results are enough for me……. .. ( can't dig with a spade)… Most importantly… I am slow, methodical and take my time..Little and often.. I can't do full days in the garden like I used to to ….I enjoy it.. Last Sunday I was sitting in my garden digging out couch grass roots and my 'pet' robin was with me for hours absolute bliss… My front garden is a mess at the moment.. I concentrate on what I can do, and don't fret if I have to let stuff go… Gardening is for pleasure ,not a chore… My local Band Q are brilliant… If and when I need compost or supplies they load it into the car for me and I have a good neighbour who takes it out form me … seeds not a problem with your wet matchstick trick…I use an old dining fork and soup spoon for handling seedlings to pot up. I do find some child proof bottles and lids a problem…My compost bin is sectional so I can dismantle it and get at the compost if I need to….Wheelchair clearance is normally between 28-31" width. If paths and back gates need to be looked at for access. Every need is personal… so plan ahead… Thanks for the suggestions. Where there is will there is a way..

    This is a great idea Jim I love it! I am getting my soil ready for the carrots now, got some great mole hills from our local walk today – such amazing soil. I'm glad you think you can grow veggies up against a sunny wall as I was not sure there would be enough light. I presume you just keep turning them round do you? Is this the wall you had your idea about the vertical gardening last year, what a lovely sunny space : ))
