An evening with Charles Dowding – 28th April 2021, 19:00pm
Charles Dowding is the guru or No Dig. Every gardener’s dream – what’s not to love.
“Charles has become the guru of no dig gardening. He’s a really good grower, organic, has fabulous produce and we went down to Somerset to see how he does it…. I’m a convert now, I want to dig as little as possible.”
Monty Don, BBC Gardeners World
No Dig is an attractive way of growing.
It provides a rich soil to grow in, and it’s an excellent way to clear a weed-infested growing area.
In principle, by avoiding digging you will not be disrupting the soil life. This is the important micro-organisms, fungi and worms, that help feed plant roots.
You will need a large quantity of organic matter. You can use home-made compost, leafmould, well-rotted manure, green waste compost or even bagged peat-free compost.

We are hosting a one-hour Zoom session at 19:00 with Charles on the 28th of April. This will be a presentation with questions and answers.
Perennial is the UK’s only charity dedicated to helping everyone who works in horticulture, and their families, when times get tough. Perennial provides free and confidential advice, support and financial assistance to people of all ages working in or retired from horticulture. This help extends to spouses, partners and children.
Some of you know I am keen to support this charity and I will be donating 10 percent of the profits on this evening to the Perennial charity. The investment in this evening is £14.99.
We truly hope you will join us on the 28th.
