When I had an allotment at first I was completely overwhelmed by the enormity of the task in front of me. Grass a yard high and ground as hard as concrete. But then I discovered ‘no-dig gardening’ and raised beds - and things began to look a lot simpler.
I am sure anyone who is a keen gardener already knows all about ‘no-dig gardening’ and about raised beds too. But if, like me, these were once as obscure as the science of nuclear physics, then I hope this article is going to be easy to understand!
I've kept it very simple - there are more complex ways to tackle no-dig gardening and raised beds. For instance, there's 'Lasagne gardening'! But I'm lazy and the less effort the better!
The raised bed goes hand-in-glove with the ‘no-dig garden’ method of planting. For physically challenged or bone-idle gardeners, this is an ideal technique.
