Charles Dowding



Charles is a contemporary pioneer of no dig growing, has run market gardens since 1983, and currently double crops a quarter acre in SW England for local sales of salad leaves and vegetables. He has written ten books plus an annual Calendar of sowing dates, has a busy website and You Tube channel, and teaches extensively to groups of gardeners. In 2016 he founded the No Dig Garden imprint to publish his Vegetable Garden Diary, a book with advice on all aspects of growing great food, more easily and in time-saving ways. It's a perennial-diary format, and he revised it in 2019, with sales now over 20,000. In 2020 he self-published No Dig Gardening, from Weeds to Vegetables Easily and Quickly.
