Healthy Growth with No Dig Gardening, talk near Portsmouth
November 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An illustrated, one hour talk on how to have healthy soil and plants, and enjoy easier harvests, followed by questions and answers.
Charles explains how he makes, buys and uses compost of different kinds.
How to clear perennial weeds with mulches, including couch grass and bindweed.
How to maintain a no dig plot, with an annual mulch of compost.
You see photos of the trials Charles runs to compare the effects on growth of dig/no dig, different composts and no rotation.
As well as reducing the time and effort needed to cultivate and weed, no dig has many other benefits, which Charles explains, and he brings a selection of his nine books, signed and for sale.
