    He also has a diary which is great. It has all the dates but no day names so you can use it multiple years in a row and keep notes. It has the usual suggestions for the month on tasks that can be completed. Even better is it’s UK climate based so no planting adjustments required. Thanks for the video Sean.

    Thanks for showing most of the pictures, I live nowhere close so it wouldn’t make sense for me to buy one (I do wish there was one for California zone 9b) but I’ve been dying to see the photos! Thanks Sean!

    charles is the relief gardener for me lol everytime i watch his videos or i ask him something i get the answers im looking for, for example everyone says you cant use just compost as potting mix, but charles does and he doesnt need fetiliser, so i do it 2 now, compost is the magical key to everything lol

    I could do with one of these, we have several scraps of paper written all over the place telling us when to plant what and they always get lost, this has it all in one place. Thanks for showing us Sean!

  15. Malcolm Brown on March 5, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Thank you Sean, I am a great fan of Charles Dowding and I have been using minimal cultivation/no dig for some years with great success.

  16. Mobile Strike on March 5, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Sean Recently I was a member of another facebook group Garden related. I am no longer on it simply because I stood up for the idea of No Dig and against remarks made against Charles Dowding personally so it is refreshing to be watching your Vlog made with such an open mind and free thinking attitude. I subscribe to Charles You tube vlog and readily contribute and receive response from Charles always with his attitude that No dig is his way but there are other ways too. I have a copy of this calender as well and totally agree with all you say here. Charles has said in an answer to a question I raised about his suggested dates for planting is that the calender dates are based around his location so for us in the North adjustment is required. I will try and find his answer and post.
