DescriptionSpecification Reviews Questions

Some mythical beliefs run deep into the collective unconscious and once ingrained as “certain facts” in the public domain, they are difficult to question, even when they contain contradictions or are demonstrably untrue. There are many such beliefs in gardening, some with discernible origins in history, some which have established for no obvious reason. This book is asking questions, because mythical beliefs hide methods of easier working, for better results.

Charles Dowding's whose books are always jam packed with real experience gleaned over a lifetime of organic growing. Unlike his other books this volume is full of what your shouldn't do rather than what you should as he works his way through common and more unusual garden misconceptions. A fascinating book which will keep you well stocked with interesting snippets of information for dinner parties or gardening gatherings for years to come.

 

A particularly beautiful hardback volume of 96 pages that makes a wonderful present for a special gardener in your life or for those moments when you feel you deserve a treat yourself!

 

"For anyone who grows edibles or for that matter gardens intensively I would recommend this book."

- Helen Jonstone The Patient Gardener

"Beginners and experienced gardeners alike can only benefit from Charles’ enthusiastic and deep understanding of what plants really need."

- The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm Blog

 

About Charles Dowding
Charles Dowding is an internationally recognized organic gardening expert. He talks on radio and television and contributes articles to many magazines, including Gardeners’ World, Gardens llustrated and Grow It! He gives regular talks, runs courses and advises many gardeners on best practice, including the National Trust in the UK.

He is a veteran organic grower, having practised no-dig gardening for many years. In his gardens over the years he has run experiments to compare differences in growth between vegetables on dug and undug soil. He has discovered different patterns of growth in most seasons, with slightly lower yields, more weeds and slugs found on the dug beds.  He is currently establishing a new  garden to illustrate no-dig practice and form the basis for a new experiment.

He says: "I have always been interested in lookiing 'behind the scenes' and asking why things are as they are, questioning practices that are taken for granted. This led me to grow organically, at a time when the chemical approach was rarely challenged."
