New allotment OMG...

Posted: 04/01/2015 at 20:34

I really like Youtube great for watching loads of things glad you liked Sean's video

Fruitcake is the run big enough for the chickens you will be getting?

Have you all been planning what you will be growing this year?

When is it you start seed sowing?  who is one that sows direct and who sows in trays/pots?

I mainly sow in trays but if I get the allotment want to sow direct more

When I got it was about 20cm wide and 20cm high was from Hillers, think in a 2ltr pot

I like the foliage nice fan shape leaves and nice and soft compared to the spikey leave on the other one

That is a shame Chicky think we got that plant near about the same time as each other

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

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
