Enjoy your course Ginagibbs sounds great

enjoy your allotments and gardens  

I am going to get a folder and put all the pics (bench) things/ideas I would like for my allotment in there

Do any of you put ideas down on paper or pics of things you would like to have for your plots?

Zoomer for pics I normally use pics from my pictures on my computer and right click and re size in paint to make smaller then use the tree symbol to put pics on hope that can help you

Some of the plots there are really overgrown and untidy like you say Zoomer I think the same how do they get away with it

Thanks all for comments on pic was a bit of a grey day but dry then

Seems to be windy out today

Like that quite a few of you all join together and help out at the allotment

Hello all

Was such a lot of rain that came down really bad at 12pm last night woke me up and then massive thunder and lightening horrible

Runnybeak1 plantains help too for nettle stings or if not sting cream

Yesterday thought I would re plant up a pot - managed to get my plant pot emptied from front door then spent a while putting the plants and bulbs in front garden and back some under pallet bench, then spent a while planting front garden border with wallflower from nursery bed I have grown from seed and wallflower from veg bed that I got gw offer then mulched the border with soil improver

Got the pot planted bulbs and cyclamen and 3 other pots for front with coloured heathers to go with the pot colour

Today was so wet in bits showers most the day, ground so soggy finally finished the turfing off

Thanks all it was GWRS that was wanting green manure seeds, I have some I got from Mr Fothergill's online a while ago

So exciting for you Fruitcake to have your key for your new plot - now you can go to the plot when ever you want

Sounds as though some of have great bargains - what garden goodies did you get?

I guess lurkies are slugs  

Ginagibbs that was a nice exchange of bits

I got to go to the allotment yesterday took some pictures had a nose around  - went into the shop got garotta for the compost bin and grass seed
