Books

Charles’ wealth of growing experience has been captured across a range of books published by Green Books, Frances Lincoln, Permanent and his own publishing house No Dig Garden.

All books feature no dig as the background to growing an abundance of vegetables, more easily. There is much original information and I give reasons for all my advice, even when it contradicts some popular notions, because what I advise is based on sound necessity and not on traditional hearsay.

This comment from Iestyn Jones, March 2017 on this composting video gives an idea of how my books can help you:

I bought Charles ‘Organic gardening no dig’ book last year and had my most rewarding year by far in terms of maximum abundance for minimum effort. The man is a horticultural genius. If like me the balance between success and failure in gardening has tipped the wrong way, treat yourself to one or three of his books… certainly transformed my fortunes.

This from Robin Lane Fox’s review of Winter Vegetables gives the flavour of my writing

“I like the calendar format and good pictures in Charles Dowding’s How to Grow Winter Vegetables (Green Books, £14.95). Winter is generously defined as the kitchen garden gap from October until May but there is a mass of proven advice here from a serious vegetable grower who knows what he is talking about. The subject is an excellent one as so many of us have veg patches which are blank in the colder weather except for a few pigeon-pecked brussels sprouts leaning at an angle among the invaluable purple sprouting. Dowding demystifies leeks and much else. If you gave your best beloved a Joy Larkcom or Alan Titchmarsh veg title last year, you can follow up aptly with this sequel. Anyone in the British climate zone will learn from it.”

For £1 extra, books are available with signature and personal dedications as an option.
