"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.
 
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal! And this tiny ad too!
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
