Charles pioneers timesaving methods of organic, and especially no dig gardening. In addition, he trials and publicises new ways of growing/picking/marketing salad leaves, and of multi-sowing vegetables. He has created and cropped four no dig market gardens on different soils: stony, silt, white and ordinary clay. In the 1980s his garden covered 7.5 acres (3ha) of no dig beds and was less intensive than now. His growing methods are as applicable for small areas as large ones. Currently he crops an intensive 0.25 acres/1000 square metres in Somerset, SW England, for local sales of salad leaves and vegetables. Most beds grow two crops a year. He has written nine books, runs a You Tube channel, has created an online course, writes for national gardening magazines, appears on BBC gardening and gives talks/courses at home and abroad.
