No dig organic gardening

Forget everything you’ve ever been told about digging, throw away your spade, spread a thick layer of compost or old manure on the garden and let the worms do all the work for you. No dig organic gardening saves you a lot of time and effort, yet produces great growth and a better soil structure.

Charles Dowding has been growing vegetables for 30 years using the no dig organic approach and is the ‘guru’ of no dig gardening. In this YouTube video he explains the basics of the approach, shows a comparison of crops growing in dug and undug ground, and tells you how to start a no dig garden.
