Hi. I have just got an allotment and want to know if I should have rows running East to West or North to South. The allotment has it's longest side running east to west. Any help would be appreciated.

The best idea is to note what the existing allotment holders are doing. Usually you should aim to have your rows North/South so one side gets sun whilst it rises in the East then the other side receives sun as it sets in the West.

If you plant East to West the North side will receive little sun.
