New allotment OMG...

Posted: 03/01/2015 at 19:53

It is more like the bake off show but I knew that from last time - more tricky this time only 9 gardeners 1 to each plot last years one had a pair to the plot

Fruitcake that would be a good allotment show reality on tv I watch Sean on youtube for that and others only place to find it - think they try videos that show the allotment styles 

me not so keen on the cooking bit and her and I would not know where to start but guess they do research before

Iike the part where they go back to when they started there growing of plants each time 

What is catching your eye?

Here is a list off the potato day website for Hampshire it has mainly dates for 2014 but 2015 dates are appearing -  see if you can find any near you -there are also websites that you can go off to

I watched the AC last night like the info on zinnias and the way they all planed there plots so differently even with the same things that they have to grow on the list they were given 

GWRS not done the shredded paper maybe it help retain moisture under the potatoes

Hello Scroggin and Ginagibbs you sound as though your plots is getting going nicely in time for the growing season

Fruitcake they first earlies are in the ground the shortest but the 2nd and main crop are all in the ground at the same time the main are just in there for longer - so best to have a separate bit of ground you can have them planted near to each other

Like if you planted them all the same day you lift the first crop shorted amount of time and then second and then main the longest it is just the length of time they are in the ground for   

Sometimes people say if you don't have space for them all grow fist and second croppers as main crop are more likely to get problems e.g.. blight, you could grow them in a bag if not enough space
