EXPERT gardener and acclaimed innovator of no dig, organic growing, Charles Dowding, is giving a talk at the Bleddfa Centre (near Knighton, Powys, LD7 1PA) on Wednesday, January 10.

Charles' innovative methods have proven to be a very successful way to grow great vegetables naturally, efficiently, and reliably, whilst saving time and effort.

He has written nine books, writes for national and international magazines and appears on television and radio, including BBC Gardeners World. He inspires gardeners both at home and abroad, and runs a popular YouTube channel.

On January 10 at 3pm, Charles will deliver an illustrated talk about the reasons for and methods needed for no dig gardening.

He says: "For me the most important part of organic is often overlooked: soil life. No dig embraces the universe under our feet and I explain how to proceed with no dig, and the benefits you then enjoy."

He will share his detailed knowledge with you and provide you with take-home tips to put into practice with your own gardening, whether you're a newbie gardener or a seasoned veteran.

There will be plenty of time to ask Charles your own questions too, and enjoy an informal chat over a light supper following the talk.

Early-bird tickets are £10 if booked by Christmas Day, and are £12 thereafter. Refreshments will be provided.
