is it too late for this year

Posted: 07/05/2012 at 20:17

I too am only just learning all the rules on what to plant and when.  Just recently got an allotment and to be honest, it's a bit of trial and error.  We have planted cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, potatoes, leeks, parsnips, beetroot, salad, spring onions, strawberries, peas and garlic so far.  Have still got room to plant another batch a bit later on so that we don't get too many at once. 

Picked up some useful tips from gardening books and the rest is either from this fab forum or just trial and error. 

Weather has been a bit against us, but have been able to keep doing little and often between the showers.

Can you give me some advice on Passion Flowers?

@Lorea thanks for the advice. Will try cutting it back. Heavens have opened this afternoon, will try another day! @Alina no it's in the ground and usually gives a great display, perhaps I'm just impatient.

Oh yes, sorry to confuse the issue I meant the Clematis and not the perennials from this months mag! Sorry.

Wow your allotment looks fab!! We got our about 4/5 weeks ago and have a few bits planted so far. U look like u have spent a fair bit on it! I am trying to be a budget allotmenteer so we tend to use what we have so far. It's great though isn't it. I enjoy it so much. Trying to keep the kids interested so they each have a raised bed. Only prob we hav so far is weather and those pesky birds!!!!! Everything covered with net. Going down there today to set up some sort of scarer! Happy gardening!

Can anyone give me advice on passion flowers? I didn't cut it back and at the mo it looks pretty sad. Should I cut it back and see if it climbs again and treat it like my Clematis??? Could it just be the cold? Can I feed it? What's best?

think of the blackbirds Monty !

Timing for seedling planting with this weather?

I wish I had a proper greenhouse! I have one of those hexagonal plastic covered things. It's better than nothing but can only really use it for seedlings etc. Not enough room for toms in grow bags etc. Still a bit of a beginner at all this, but things going ok.
