No dig, a great way to grow
Imagine producing an abundant garden of delicious vegetables without lifting a spade. Imagine putting organic, flavoursome food on the kitchen table in a way that saves you time, respects the environment and sustains the soil – the very lifeblood of the garden. This is all possible, even in small spaces, so why not give it a go?
All round advice
This website is to inform, interest and encourage you to try no dig gardening. There is plenty of other advice too such as seasonal sowings and my fortnightly updates on what’s best to do now. To find out more why not come on a course, or you can learn online with my in-depth video course.
I have spent 35 years learning and developing a no dig method of commercial, highly productive vegetable growing, with almost no weeds growing. My quarter acre of intensively cropped beds yield over a tonne of salad leaves every year, and vegetables for weekly boxes.
I’ve written seven books and produced many videos on caring for soil and growing vegetables. I also share my passion and knowledge through international talks, courses and regular magazine articles, earning the Garden Media Guilds award ‘Practical Journalist of the Year, 2014’.
