We won!

Yesterday, our book No Dig Organic Home and Garden won the Peter Seabrook Practical Book of the Year at the Garden Media Guild Awards at the Savoy in London.

We are absolutely blown away, totally delighted!

This is what the judges said about the book. (Click on the image to link to the full list of GMG award winners).

More later, it’s back to reality now (we got back from London late morning today) and I have gardening to do and a weekend course to prepare for 🙂

      1. Please do Steph. I read all of Charles’ books over the winter of last year. Literally one after another! The no-dig is just one element of the approach you and Charles take that makes growing fruit and vegetables so much easier and satisfying. I learned so much about the way the season can be managed better by growing more in modules for example and Charles’ sowing calendar is such a useful guide for starting crops off at the optimum time. Best wishes to you both.


  1. Richly deserved. I enjoy all of your books, but this tone seems to top them all. I’m hoping to see a presentation in the Nottingham area at sometime soon. Cheers!


      1. It sounds like they store pretty well at a warm room temperature. Have you tried them before? Sounds like there are lots of ways to use them as well as neat from the skin. If they take longer to ripen, than other melons, I expect they would be a big tricky for me. They look like fun though!
