In Organic Gardening Charles Dowding shares the philosophy, tips and techniques that have enabled him to run a successful organic garden supplying local restaurants and shops for over 25 years.

 Forget the 'received wisdom' about gardening. Observe what is going on in the soil and with your plants, in your own garden and climate.

 Respect and encourage life as much as you can, chiefly by spreading good compost or manure.

 There is no need to dig in compost and manure - just spread it on top and let worms take it in. Digging can harm soil structure, and is not helpful to plants.

Based on his experience of using a system of permanent raised beds, Charles takes you through a delicious variety of fruit and vegetables: explaining what to choose, when to plant and harvest, and how best to avoid pests and diseases.

With simple recipes for your fresh-picked produce, this second edition features new photographs and more tips and advice.
