Just saying hi and introducing myself :-)

Hi VP......your allotment sounds really lovely.....especially all the wildlife......it's has a world of its own gardening doesn't it.......definately Is a destresser. I live in aflat, have a balcony with loads of seedlings, plants, ,cold frame, and my flat at the moment is full of cuttings waiting for the warmer weather.  I also look after a garden which is all raised beds of shrubs and bedding plants in the summer.  Just thinking gardening is also good for sleeping....done quite a bit today and could nod off very easily.

anyway VP enjoy the site.
