Thanks for the welcome everyone :)

No Dig Garden Method?

As I have terrible soil like concrete, I'm looking seriously at the no dig method, anyone practising this with success? Would love to know how it's going if you are.

Thanks :)

Hello from Surrey

Hello all,
New here and looking for advice and ideas as I have just cut down a 60x40 triffid field and now find my soil is stronger than concrete after braking two spades :)
Try to get a plot going on a small budget too.
