The Veg Journal by Charles Dowding contains expert, No-Dig gardening advice on a month by month basis. Each month has information on what you should be doing in the garden and how to do it. Also provided are some blank, lined pages for you to fill in as you go. Charles Dowding is the organic gardener in the U.K., he runs courses at his base in Somerset and has written a number of important books on vegetable growing. He was one of the first to champion the natural 'No Dig' approach to gardening with all his teaching centered around looking after the gardeners most valuable resource - the soil. As he always says; "The answer is in the soil". If you only buy one book to get you started growing then this is the one. It makes an ideal gardening gift.
