New allotment OMG...

Posted: 21/10/2014 at 18:45

Fruitcake that sounds so exciting - think if you have 2 sites with allotments on you could make more allotment buddy's,  slight issue with tools I guess you sort out what you need each time you go there and may have to double up on some bits

do you get to have a look at the site before you decide if you are going to have it?

you can grow different things on each site soil may be different from one to other

Hello all

I emptied my 2 plant pots the other day - plants left put into veg bed as a temp home did lots of washing up outside yesterday pots and 2 baskets washed and dry ready for tomorrow going to a container workshop at Hillier's

Q -  I have three different types of tulips to plant in my two containers one lot is small tulips so will go at the top bit of the pot - but I have the two different tulips for the rest of the pot 5 of each colour orange + purple, now do you mix the colours on one layer or keep them separate?    

Rock garden

Make sure you leave some good gaps for plants, play around with the rock until you like it - cause if something not right you will always look at it like that bit would of looked better there, when filling with soil make sure you water it in to let the soil settle in between the rock add more if needed before adding plants

hope any of this helps

Hello all

Tillered big path area of veg path trying to sort out for turf - got it all done, so much shaking from that machine, cleaned the tiller all up I was just sorting it out for packing up rain started so that was a faster pack up.

Managed to feed the birds - brought more bird food online this morning  

Lesley K cyclamen are nice though

Chicky - did not know about a prog with Monty in next week will check this out thanks

Heat wave here I think well it is warmer out than it was last week
