If you are keen to learn the secrets of the ‘No Dig’ approach to vegetable gardens then Charles Dowding is giving a lecture in Shepton Mallet on Wednesday, 21st February at his garden at Alhampton, Shepton Mallet. It’s the chance to learn the essentials of no dig: mulching to feed soil, hoeing tiny weeds, buying, making and using compost.
Part of the course is about compost making, using the examples of his composting process. Which ingredients are good to use, in what proportions, how big a heap to have, whether it needs to get hot, how long to leave it and whether turning is worthwhile. 10.30am - 4pm Cost £135.
