In this hardback edition of Organic Gardening, Charles Dowding (the guru of no dig gardening), Charles shares his organic, no-dig approach to soil and plants, revealing the range of techniques that enable him to grow healthy, vibrant crops while, with sustainability in mind, maintaining a healthy soil. His success is based on these key principles * No-dig *Spread organic matter on the soil surface *Clean & improve the soil in the first 3-12 months * Weed every 10 days or so, when weeds are small. By using a system of permanent, slightly raised beds, Charles shows how to grow a delicious variety of fruit and vegetables organically: what to choose; when to sow, plant and harvest; and how best to avoid pests and diseases.
