Thank you for this thread snowathlete     I've managed to overcome the ' omg I've got an allotment' feeling (thanks to Zoomer and good folk on that thread) so now into the omg planning stage!

Still at the soil preparation stage so thank you  fidgetbones for your timely list to be ticked off. A great help 

It's odd really as I feel reasonably sure about my garden planting etc  but the allotment threw me back to being a 'newbie': funny feeling

Hello, just catching up  

Bekkie, thank you for your kind comments about my garden  yes it is Gaura lindheimeri (just looked it up !). Whilst it is bushy at the base it has very long stems which the winds twined together every which-way, at least four feet now and still flowering. Beautiful. Checking to see if I can divide it.

The coffee morning was geat fun, although the change in the weather meant I couldn't use all my 'shabby chic' skills  . Had lots of help from Beaus  it was good to talk through ideas.

Beautiful flower arrangement artjak   . Echoing the colours I tried something similar with freesia in a jug

through the outside of the cloakroom window (crinkle glass) . With a bit of imagination, squinting and a close up it looks like a watercolour painting

I need my avocado stone to sprout in order to prove a friend wrong

Hi, pansy's method is the only way it will sprout. I  recall  warmth and light was needed and even then it took at least a month before a tiny shoot appeared. Maybe topping up the water instead of  changing it keeps an even temp. You could trial several to see which sprouts first 

Don't be downhearted you haven't agreed a time limit on this  have you? There's still a chance  good luck.

Not having a greenhouse I didn't think of the other insects philippa    . I'm sure GWRS will read this (probably realises already)

Fruitcake     congratulation, sounds just the right size for an extra plot. I thought keeping chickens would  be quite labour intensive, feeding, cleaning out etc, but worth it! Look forward to photos.
