ORGANIC GARDENING

The Natural No-Dig Way

Author : Charles Dowding

ISBN : 9781903998915

Publisher : Green Books

Pages : 224

Format : Paperback

Description : In Organic Gardening, Charles Dowding shares the philosophy, tips and techniques which have enabled him to run a successful organic garden supplying local restaurants and shops for over 25 years.
• Forget the rules: ‘received wisdom’ about gardening is surprisingly inaccurate – understand better what is going on in the soil and with your plants, in your own garden and climate, and work out your own methods instead.
• Respect and encourage life as much as you can, chiefly by spreading good compost or manure.
• There is no need to dig in compost and manure (digging can harm soil structure and is not helpful to plants) – just spread it on top and let worms take it in.
• You can reduce weeding to a little hand-weeding or hoeing every ten days

Based on his experience of a system of permanent slightly-raised beds, Charles takes you through a delicious variety of fruit and vegetables: what to choose, when to plant and harvest, and how best to avoid pests and diseases. The book includes recipes to inspire you to culinary heights with your fresh-picked produce.
