Bill the Butcher - Charles Dowdings No Dig Salad Leaves
|1 x 100g
1 x 100g Salad Leaves.
Charles Dowding has been growing organic vegetables over three and a half decades, in five different gardens on a range of soils, with an organic, no dig approach.
His market gardens have ranged from eleven acres in the 1980s, with four apprentice helpers, to the current third of an acre where his fertile beds produce year-round salad leaves and a wide range of vegetables, sold in local shops and restaurants. The garden grows trials too, such as comparing the effect on plant growth of digging with not digging, more about which can be found on https://www.charlesdowding.co.uk/no-dig-growing/homeacres/
Thanks to his long experience and successful results, including that his gardens have so few weeds, he is frequently asked to talk and give advice to individuals and groups who seek better results, for less effort. The approach he uses is as suitable for small gardens as for market gardens, and he has great testimonials from both, including a whole programme of Gardeners World with Geoff Hamilton in 1988.
Since 2006 he has distilled his experience into a number of books on vegetable growing and has written articles for many gardening publications, including Gardeners World, Kitchen Garden, Country Smallholding, Permaculture, Grow Your Own, The Daily Telegraph, NVS, Optimum Nutrition and the RHS.
