I am an innovator of no dig, organic growing since 1983, and since 2003 of new ways to crop salad leaves, more information at https://www.charlesdowding.co.uk. My original, weed free methods give superb results in both small and large areas: see this in videos on my You Tube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB1J6siDdmhwah7q0O2WJBg such as making a no dig bed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIojWdJz0RE.
My methods are about growing more easily, in less time. By understanding and working with natural processes.
I sell produce from Homeacres bio-intensive, no dig garden, have written nine books, write for national and international magazines, and appear on tv and radio including BBC Gardeners World. I also lecture and run courses at home and abroad.
In 2016 I self published a diary/book for vegetable gardeners, full of seasonal and time-saving advice. It's crafted by top designers, ring bound and for perpetual use.
In 2016/17 I co-wrote a book with my partner Stephanie Hafferty: No Dig Organic Home and Garden. This has Steph's recipes and tips for storing food, and making potions for garden plants, as well as the key information on growing great food.
My earlier books continue to reach a wide audience, especially Organic Gardening the No Dig Way. Myths and Misconceptions continues to provoke strong reactions and save gardeners a lot of time.
Soil and vegetables are my passion and I seek to convey their amazing qualities in my writing and teaching.
