Posted: 09/01/2015 at 12:38

Hello  Q is this about the time that everyone pays there allotment fees?

Q What is the first tool you got for your plot? 


Thanks Weyplotter,  I guess different locations have different rates for fees

Cutting flower suggestions

Hello I am trying to grow flowers for cutting this year, here is a thread with some ideas on that got started a while ago hope this will help

lilies (do day lilies work as cut flowers?)  -  don't think they do as the flowers go over too quick

Allium2 sure they will unless there is a big rush on, oh there were some smaller packs as well, mind the plants most of them have 50% off they may have tendency to jump into your trolley

Does sound windy and wet outside and I still have the plastic gh up need to get it away

Charlie thanks for the ideas - like No expert said we like to recycle and it is all about the challenge of trying to make a pallet into something completely different

In last pic coldframe lid is propped up under the peach tree branch just for temporary getting bits in then and taking photo - not normally going to do that, it was just in the right place 

Will be venting it so not to get to hot in there (summertime) or condensation
