Talk on No Dig gardening at St Albans allotments, June 9th

June 9 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Charles Dowding no dig

An illustrated, one hour talk on how to have healthy soil and enjoy easier harvests, followed by questions and answers.

Here is a page where you can email Martyn Astley for tickets.

  • Based on my long experience of organic, no dig growing and giving you the knowledge to grow more easily and quickly, while also reaping the benefits of working with nature and her amazing processes for maintaining soil and plant health.

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.
