New allotment OMG...

What a lot to do Zoomer44 - does that mean you have no shed on the plot, think you will be busy - my to do list is getting no where as I have a nasty cold

Ginagibbs well done with your digging had to look up the Gloucestershire bit you one of those not sure about that

GWRS you just have to wait to get to your plot, you could watch some youtube bits

Great idea you two never would of thought of taking a spade or fork,  it would more be a spade as fork here very bent

I will have a good nosy around when I get that far

Can I be nosy and ask people when you got the call and invited to look at your plot did you walk around them or just look from the edge of your possible plot?

Just a Q for when I get to that stage

Hello and welcome Roy what sort of things are you wanting to grow? 

Try and see if you can get any well rotted horse manure for your plot that will help improve the soil where needed, well sounds as though you are making a good start getting rid of the weeds, where about are you? 

I was reading this interesting 

and been watching more of Katie's allotment    

Ginagibbs good one yes those sunflowers are brill keeping all the slug away (not they get eaten to quick before they get good tuff stems and roots) 

The way I like to grow these is in tins that had food in the ring pull type, then use the tin opener to open the bottom and keep that bit in the tin - needs to lean on the bit that had the ring pull lid and gives you drainage and when ready to plant out push the bottom of the tin straight up and your plant pops out  - if you get that

GWRS great you got to spend the day up the allotment and what a harvest you have

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Woo2 have you the Sutton catalogue in the small red booklet inspiring gift, I like the small iron greenhouse and the indoor allotment planters  

Think you will have good space in your garden in the area you are preparing for your cut flowers

I have looked though the catalogues and have spotted some nice looking flowers in them - so will be making a list but not too big if not it will be expensive and I have quite a few flower seeds to grow any way ,  it's the year of the sunflower next year for Suttons so I need to try grow them well and keep the slugs away  

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

What have I got left to do in the garden quite a bit make a cold frame, still a few bulbs to plant, scarify the grass, put up screens, bit of sorting front garden and putting up a small fence out of pallets, putting away my plastic greenhouse and a good lot of tidying up to do, few things will need to be done in spring re make my raised bed as falling apart and adding compost

Then I have the station garden to think about lots of bulbs to plant out quite a few plants as well
