Two item deal: Charles Dowding Gardening Calendar 2020, and Vegetable Garden Diary new edition
A special offer, both signed, and dedicated if requested.
A great deal for successful no dig Gardening. The Calendar is still highly useful for sowing dates, starting mid February with sowings in every month until late autumn. I have reduced the price a little as we have a fair few to sell still.
Comment from Laura Green, December 2019:
I received my copies yesterday, and thought the diary and calendar were so good, I ordered one for my mother-in-law and one for my sister-in-law too. I’ve been a very haphazard gardener for the past 20 years or so, but now I’m cottoning on to the concept of planning and preparation, while learning about no dig. Thanks for all you do, it’s transformed my experience of my small garden.
Prices to the USA are around $22 plus around $16 shipping. We are happy to include an extra calendar to all international customers.
Charles Dowding is renowned for his no-dig approach to growing and the benefits it brings in saving money, less weeding, plant health and harvests for all seasons. Although this spiral bound book is a ‘diary’ of sorts, this only tells half the story as it is also packed with tips, guidance and nuggets of gardening wisdom on various aspects of growing fruit and veg.
From care of the soil to making compost to how to manage individual plants, this book is structured chronologically month by month, as you would expect. It starts with March – one of the busiest months in the gardening year – and ends in February. Each month has a page for notes in diary format, so you can add your own notes as an aide memoire perhaps to look back on in subsequent years. The diary pages are interspersed with well-illustrated pages of practical advice. Definitely one to have by your side as the growing year unfolds.
WHO IS IT FOR? All gardeners looking to get the best out of their crops.
