New allotment OMG...

Posted: 22/08/2014 at 22:45

Yes I have put my name down, only 18 months or so to wait.  They have put my name onto the list so I am waiting. 

I know there are a couple of plots that are pretty run down so can't see why there is such a long waiting list if people are not caring for their plots.  I found out that their trading shed can be used by members of the public and so have been a couple of times to get things and to nosy at the allotments, enjoying a wander.

Received 48 perennial plugs, but what do I do next?

I had my plants in the pots for a month and planted them out a few days after the pic I posted earlier, I will say they will be fine after a month of growing in the pots and being looked after to get planted out.

As I only have a plastic green house and that will be put away before it gets too cold so the plants would be out in the open anyway and the border I have planted them into has a nice layer of new compost and they seem to be doing good so they will grow nice and strong out in the garden before the really cold weather kicks in.

Hi Ginagibbs  great to have your plot free for a while I guess no one was on the plot for a while before - even though waiting list was long

any pics? make sure you take before and after to note down what you have achieved

well done for the effort put into your plot

Do you pay £10 every year for the shed?
