Organic Gardening: The Natural No-dig Way full colour edn
picture
Features:-
Charles Dowding has been practising no-dig organic growing for over 30 years. In this new, full colour edition of Organic Gardening, he shares the wealth of his experience, explaining his approach to soil and plants and revealing the range of techniques that have enabled him to grow healthy and vibrant plants for decades. His success is based on some key principles: No-dig enhances soil structure and encourages healthy growth; Organic matter is best spread on the surface - just leave it on the top and let the worms take it in, aerating the soil as they do so; When starting with weedy soil there is a period of 3-12 months, depending on weed types, when the emphasis is on cleaning and improving the soil; Using a no-dig method you can easily control weeds with just a little hand weeding or hoeing every ten days or so, when weeds are small. Based on this approach and his experience of a system of permanent, slightly raised beds, Organic Gardening shows you how to grow a delicious variety of fruit and vegetables: what to choose, when to sow, plant and harvest, and how best to avoid pests and diseases without the need to dig.

How to Grow Winter Vegetables
picture
Features:-
This book explains how to come through winter with plenty of vegetables stored, fresh harvests to make, and also has advice for growing plants to withstand the winter, for eating in spring during the hungry gap season of April, May and early June. Winter and early spring require a different kind of gardening to the summer months; not a lot grows at this time, but a well planned plot may nonetheless be quite full. Vegetables need to be sown and planted at specific times so the book's middle section is a monthly sowing, planting and growing calendar. The next part covers monthly harvesting adventures, from garlic in July to spring cabbage and pea shoots in may. through winter, soil is cool and transforms the plot into a large outdoor larder where many vegetables keep healthy and alive, ready for harvesting when needed. many salads can be grown in winter, especially with a little protection, such as from fleece and cloches. Many examples of frost hardy salad plants and other vegetables are given, with best sowing dates and harvesting methods. The beauty of winter and its produce is captured in photographs from the author's garden. 'High producers that take up little space make fantastic sense. One of our national specialists in doing this successfully is Charles Dowding, the salad-growing expert, who has pioneered the no-dig technique of growing veg in raised beds.' -- Sarah Raven, Daily Telegraph
