About no dig and using this website

The weed free, no dig methods I have developed since 1982 give superb space-, carbon-, and time-saving results in both small and large garden areas. See My story for how I worked this out. Twice a month I post my blog, please scroll down for other recent news, webshop including signed books, and my latest video.  Under Learn, the Links page has my recommended suppliers.  See Beginners Guide for starting out no dig, with the option to read it in Spanish, Serbian and Italian.   See my starting no dig video here. For answers to your questions about no dig, see my FAQs

You can listen to my growing story on podcasts with Joe Lamp’l 2019.
