I started a no dig garden last year and also attended one of Charles’s No Dig day courses. The attached photo was taken in January 2024. Not much to show here at this time of year- except a few broad beans under cover.
I have included a couple of pictures I took today. Not much to show here at this time of year- except a few broad beans under cover.
I started last year following Charles' advice covering the ground with cardboard and piling on plenty of compost and using wood chippings for the paths. Compared with what I had achieved before last year, it was very productive under the new regime. However this is still early days. I used temporary wooden boards for the beds which I am now taking away as I put more compost on for the coming year. I am trying to get the compost production going although my view of the compost heaps looks a little forlorn! I would be happy for any no dig neighbours to get in touch; firstname.lastname@example.org
