No dig gardening, talk by Joshua the Gardener, March 8th, 730-9pm. Phoenix Community Centre. Free to Bhogg members, non-members £5
Joshua the gardener was very popular at Seedy Sunday, with a huge line of people waiting to ask him questions after his talk. We are delighted to have him come talk to us at the Phoenix Community centre in a few weeks.
His talk is based around growing vegetables without the need to cultivate the soil so, no digging, forking or tilling. The no dig gardening method was made popular by Charles Dowding and having featured on gardeners world a few weeks back it is going through a rapid rise in popularity. It’s a process of adding organic matter in layers and growing almost immediately. Healthier plants, healthier soil and bigger yields.
The talk covers all aspects of how to get started, sowing and harvesting as well as design points. The talk currently is around 60 minutes with plenty of time for Q&A at the end.
