No dig organic gardening saves time and work. It requires an annual dressing of compost to help accelerate the improvement in soil structure and leads to higher fertility and less weeds. No dig experts, Charles Dowding and Stephanie Hafferty, explain how to set up a no dig garden. They describe how to:
• make compost and enrich soil
• learn skills you need to sow and grow annual and perennial veg
• harvest and prepare food year round
• make natural cosmetics, cleaning products and garden preparations
