Allotment shed can anyone help!?!

 HI ,My allotment rules are much the same as yours, in order for us to get permission to have an allotment we had to sign a contract that the plot would be only for 11 calendar months and that no permanent structure be built above 5ft and No poly tunnels or Greenhouses except small tomato grow houses /cold frames would allowed .I think the Parish council are worried that there would be a haphazard amount of jury built sheds creating an Eye-Sore

Hi ,would it be possible for you to ask the Local Council Environment officer to have a look at your problem and maybe they would be able to make some recommendations .

Yes you are ,


Clematis Should I get 1 or 2

Posted: 18/03/2013 at 09:31

Hi Blackest , it depends on the weather we are getting , Figrat has given good advice, keep the lower stems of the plant shaded the Clematis is a woodland plant ,and don't forget to put in some form of trellis or wire mesh so as your plants can climb


What's the weather like in your area?

Hi folks

I joined last year but didnt find the nerve to join in when you all seemed to know each other. Today i thought i will join in  but the first thing i read was from someone i think his name was cloggerhead and he was complaining about people asking questions instead of just reading the information that the site gives out but i must say the rest of you sound friendly and i've enjoyed reading your comments.

I am very friendly  the question seemed like a good idea at the time but now I tread very carefully I did not mean for anyone to take offence .
