"NO DIG ABUNDANCE, a weedy field becomes garden in 9 months, using mulches only

Turning an uncultivated plot with many perennial weeds, into an abundant garden using the no-dig approach. all within a few months in 2013. I describe the process in detail in "How to Create a New Vegetable Garden", pub. Green Books 2014.
To see how the garden evolved over the next few years. we made another video in July 2016 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVY4S.... Notice how there is no cardboard or polythene! All perennial weeds have died, including the bindweed.
And this video is Homeacres no dig garden in August 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFT4O....
Regular updates are on my website, with fortnightly advice about sowing, planting, weeding, picking and mulching http://www.charlesdowding.co.uk/categ...

Idris - that appears to be Charles Dowding's video, and his words that you've copied, and his website you've linked to.  But you've used 'I' as though it's your own.

Charles is a valued member here.  I appreciate that you are sharing his excellent work, but please be a little more up front with what you are posting.

Burra - It'd be wrong to lay claim on  Charles's work. I am a fan of his technique.
I shared his work not as my project. Charles is duly credited. Those were his words.

Thanks for voicing your concern.
