Just aquired an allotment, well more of a small plot really and haven't grown much veg before although I love my plants. What veg can I plant now? I would appreciate any other tips about starting a new plot.
Get some good manure through it to enrich the soil. We have just planted winter lettuce but I'm afraid that's all I can offer I'm sure others will give you a wealth of ideas
Thanks for the tip Stacey.
I too have just taken over a plot (in my new garden so I have taken my name is off of the waiting list ). I don't plan to put much in for the rest of the year but will probably get some broad beans and shallots in later in the year for crops next year. You can still get some plug plants in some of the garden centres for winter veg but I would think it's getting little late for sowing anything ... someone correct me if I'm wrong please. I'm focusing on preparing the site so I can get the best out of it in the long run.
