Day course in no dig veg gardening at Perch Hill, April 11th
April 11 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 am £185
Charles will explain the principles of no-dig growing and how it saves so much time! For beginners and experienced gardeners he will show how to create a productive garden and show methods which will increase the growth and health of your plants. Efficient compost creation is also part of this course – view and buy here.
Compost on the surface results in healthy growth, few weeds and good moisture retention. 2018 was an excellent year for me, despit or thanks to the drought – light levels were good! I explain where to buy compost as well as how to make it.
You learn about clearing weeds without removing them or disturbing soil.
How to propagate plants in order to keep your beds full all the time.
How to grow and pick salads, all year round.
In a few words, how to enjoy your veg growing more!
“Many thanks for making the journey to Sheffield last week, and providing such a fantastic and stimulating talk for our audience. Everyone loved it!”

“Charles has become the guru of no dig gardening. He’s a really good grower, organic, has fabulous produce and we went down to Somerset to see how he does it…. I’m a convert now, I want to dig as little as possible.”

I came on a course last August, and it has given me so much direction and understanding in my gardening thinking. And your updates through the winter are an absolute tonic.
@charles_dowding has changed my life! I tried for so many years to grow veg, read loads of books and just made a lot of slugs very happy. In 2016 I decided to give it one last try before packing it in. I religiously followed his book, sticking to exactly the varieties he recommended. I followed his sowing times on the monthly Newsletter and the difference in what I can grow has been phenomenal! Having regular pickings of salads like this at this time of year used to be a far off dream!
