Charles Dowding’s Vegetable Garden Diary


How to grow great vegetables, all year, every year, with Charles Dowding’s ingenious no-dig system
Charles Dowding’s Vegetable Garden Diary provides advice on how to grow great crops. A quarter of the book is dedicated to space for writing every day – not dated by year. This means that readers can use the Diary year-on-year, to help them make the best decisions for their gardens, based on their previous experiences and combined with Charles’ invaluable suggestions.

Charles Dowding, a pioneer of organic and no-dig growing, takes readers through the whole process, from clearing weeds, feeding soil and sowing to harvests and storing vegetables. He provides advice on:

• Sowing and planting methods, plus raising plants at home
• Best sowing dates – so that seeds neither fail in cold nor start too late
• The advantages of no-dig, for saving time, less weeds and bigger crops
• How to maintain control of weeds through timely mulching and hoeing
• How to feed soil just once per year, for strong and healthy growth
• When and how to make harvests, and how to store produce.

Charles Dowding’s Vegetable Garden Diary is a garden companion of seasonal prompts which, combined with readers’ own additions, will give precise guidance about growing great vegetables. It is introduced by Darina Allen.
