New Book – Charles Dowding’s Skill for Growing

New Book – Charles Dowding’s Skill for Growing

My new book is available on back order and will arrive at Homeacres on 15th December, please place your order here.
In ‘Skills for Growing’ I share the knowledge and techniques you need for success in all aspects of vegetable gardening, based on my decades of experience.

My desire is to save you time, effort and money, through making all your inputs effective. From seeds and water, to the space in your garden. There are three chapters with vital information about spacing, and a harvesting table for easier planning of second plantings to keep space full.

I advise on how to create planting plans, succeed with succession and reduce rotation. There are chapters on saving your own seed, propagation, multisowing, spacing for all common vegetables, methods of harvesting and how they influence growth, watering (both when and how much) and using covers for warmth as well as pest protection. I also describe successful winter gardening, and growing perennial vegetables.

Skills for Growing is also available in a double pack with the 2022 calendar (correct version, second printing). Both will be sent out together once we have delivery of the books.
