Midsummer no dig allotment and garden

It’s early July in my no dig garden, and I am loving the daily fruity harvests of raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, gooseberries and redcurrants. Whitecurrants are almost ready to pick and cherries soon too, protected from birds by enviromesh, pegged securely to the tree.

Earth Day

Yesterday was Earth Day 2020, a time for thinking about nature and our planet. No dig gardening is an earth inspired way of growing which protects the soil, soil life and environment. There’s been a phenomenal increase in interest in no dig gardening, which is fantastic!

Last blog of 2019

It’s the last day of 2019 …. didn’t that pass quickly? I’m sure there are things on my “to do” list from February that I’m still meaning to get round to!
