No Dig Gardening – online course
From Weeds to Vegetables Easily and Quickly
The No Dig Gardening online course is perfect for when you’re starting out. It’s also a great way to consolidate your existing understanding of no dig.
I’ll walk you through how to start with the soil you have, so you can grow beautiful, healthy vegetables. You’ll learn how to get your soil right, and how that leads to saving time and bountiful harvests.
One great aspect of no dig is that you don’t need any expensive kit, or any fertilisers or feeds. Almost everything you need is in the soil. So before you rush off to spend a lot at the garden centre make sure you do this course. It’ll save you time and money! By the end of the course, you’ll have all the knowledge and confidence you need to produce amazing results.

You’ll learn how to use the course, the secret to enjoyable gardening and the history and benefits of no dig.
We explore the results of no dig on different soils. You’ll see how it compares to growth in dug soil with side-by-side trials. I also talk you through the jobs you don’t need to do. I love breaking down gardening myths, especially when it saves you time!
It’s time to consider how you might set up your garden, including paths. We explore what size and alignments will work best for you and how to keep paths weed-free.
Mulching in year one leads to weed-free soil. You’ll learn how to identify different types of weeds, how to deal with them and how to stay weed-free.
I provide simple definitions of fertility, compost and soil. We look at composts you can buy or source for free, and how to make it at home in the space you have.
I show you how to create a bed with compost on weeds and plant in it the same day. You’ll also learn about vegetable choices and planting methods. The course finishes with a summary talk and a final quiz.
