Published by Welbeck Publishing Group.

You dream of growing your own fruit and vegetables but don't like digging and weeding? This is the one for you! Whether you have a garden, a balcony, or a window box, my no dig method is the perfect way to create a family garden together.

Beautiful and charismatic illustrations by Kristyna Litten are on every page. They bring the possibilities and joy of gardening to life, before you even begin.

I explain how healthy soil will lead to healthy plants, and will grow more of the amazing creatures that live in soil. The book tells you about the magic of compost, the amazing power of seeds, and how to grow flowers that bring in more wildlife.

Read success stories from families and groups that are using my methods. The simple and achievable gardening projects in this book are ideal for parents and young children to do together. My no dig techniques perfectly lend themselves to gardening with little ones. They can't manage heavy digging and quickly grow bored of endless weeding – with no dig, weeds are few!

The projects are explained in easy, step-by-step processes, designed for children. Attractive, full-bleed photography is supplemented with fun illustrations, and fully illustrated factual spreads. Running throughout the gardening projects are extra little facts about plants and wildlife, as well as things to look out for when you are outdoors. And with no dig as a cornerstone method, to make it all easier and natural – see this brief video.

Contents:

Dear gardeners / What is no dig gardening? / No-dig mythbusting / What is soil and what makes it healthy? / Microbe power! / What is compost? / How to make compost / Suitable heap enclosures / A no-dig bed in a day / Creating a no-dig bed / Planting a no-dig bed / What is a weed? / Sowing seeds under cover / Sowing for four seasons of food / When to sow and plant common vegetables / A no-dig sensory garden / Raising seedlings / Upcycling in your garden / Attract wildlife in your garden / School gardens in Surrey / Grow a giant sunflower / Grow and carve a Halloween pumpkin / Vegetables need company! / A no-dig market garden / Be a garden scientist / Ten easy flowers / Gardening for children with additional needs / Seed-saving projects / Useful information / Index

———

If you’ve ever tried to garden with children, you’ll know of the constant battle between trying to keep them interested long enough whilst making sure that the jobs are simple enough for them to complete. This is the simple reason that no-dig is ideal for children – a relatively lower level of work (arguably much less work) with even more to show for your efforts!

Within these pages Charles has managed to explain the techniques fully, whilst not speaking down to its target audience – no mean feat really. Starting with explaining why it’s important to respect our soil and how that, in turn, benefits us all in the long run.

Wonderfully this rather slim book takes in both vegetable and flower growing, with fun projects such as growing a giant sunflower and pumpkin carving, that will have the children hooked for years. Speaking from experience with my own children, a giant sunflower is enough to induce a love of all things plants forever more.

Accompanied by a swathe of illustrations Kristyna Litten, this is one book that’ll not only teach, it’ll look beautiful on either an adult or children’s bookshelf too!
