Spring into Summer with Charles Dowding

Using a greenhouse to raise plants, sown mid February, and fleece to protect them after planting in mid March. The video is narrated 22nd June with flashbacks to planting method/spacing, and harvests already taken.

By July, except for parsnips, all these plantings are harvested, cleared and new crops are growing, see them in the ‘second plantings’ video, to come in early winter.

Charles explain how he created this bed on weedy pasture, and have maintained it since 2013; now is its fifth year no dig. Filmed and edited by his son Edward Dowding.
