I never thought this day would come. I woke up in London with a fever, missed a train (or two), but eventually made it 100 miles to Charles Dowding’s EPIC market garden, Homeacres. The sky opened up for about an hour, and Charles shared the deep wisdom behind his garden.
Charles Dowding is the godfather of the modern “no-dig” or “no-till” approach to gardening, where you NEVER till or dig down into your soil and disturb its structure and the soil life. He applies ~2″ of compost, once per year, and…that’s it. From there, he starts transplants for most everything except for a few root crops and pops them into his beds.
The compost is made on-site, as you’ll see in this video, and the market garden produces around 20,000 GBP of produce every single year.

Epic Gardening is much more than a YouTube channel. I have a website with 300+ gardening tutorials as well as a podcast where I release daily gardening tips in five minutes or less. There’s also a Facebook group with over 1,500 other gardeners sharing their tips.
