Ive found myself the proud owner of an allotment and have just spent a few days getting it cleared of tall weeds. But what next, I've been told to spray weedkiller then cover with some weed matting, or do I just cover first. It's a large plot and I really want to get it up and running, any help would be much appreciated.

I bumped up the other allotment thread for you

WOW Gardengirl the first link is an new allotmteers dream .

I've found inspiration though from the rickvanman site.


Hi ally2 how about clear a area grow veg and then clear some more areas then the ones that you have cleared just go over them with a how to keep the weeds down 

There is also a method Alys Flower does on her allotment called lasagne gardening about 6 minutes in on the video where she uses cardboard horse muck and few bits more to help keep the weeds away with no digging

Thanks for all the advice, I will give the links a look. Been up today and have dug out a far size area, with some help. I suppose I just have to keep at it, little by little I will get some results.
