Hello Weyplotter I am in Southampton waiting for a plot at Weston allotments, on council website says 3 month waiting list so not too long to wait now

I subscribe to GW mag and to Garden news which is weekly and gives away a lot of seeds most weeks more in spring and summer mostly flowers this year and a few veg

Do you have any pictures?   

So you kind of have a whole plot now
