No-Dig Gardening

By Allen Gilbert
No-Dig GardeningAllen & Unwin

Here's a book for those of us who want to garden but with the minimum of fuss. No digging, no physical labour — just the layering of organic materials to form a raised garden bed. Principles of no-dig gardening include: composting processes, composting layers, the balance between carbon and nitrogen, encouragement of soil organisms, and the creation of humus. Gardens inclue hay bales planted with potatoes, planting straight into bags of potting mix, tyre tiers, tubs and jute bags. Great advice.
