I am not sure BizzieB I know I have the garden here veg area mainly part shade cause trees in garden and some bit of garden at the train station where I volunteer at but that is all flowers

I definitely want a plot with no big trees so get lots of light

Thank GWRS me really not looking in the right place that does make it a lot clearer  

Your cold frame looks really good thanks for the picture like the lid support not thought of that 

Do you have 2 sheds now? one on both plots

Is that a patio to sit out on the left

Thanks all may only be a few months waiting maybe, 

Ginagibbs I am keen - how is your new potting bench

BizzieB on the site it looks as though one of the site reps has now got a few more plots added to his others about 6 or some maybe half plots

Baza I have just looked at the council allotment page they have re done it and it says that there is a 3 month waiting list not 18 months so exciting

Are you growing cut flowers can't remember 

Do you grow new things each year?

I enjoy looking though the catalogues just ordered kings one

Just thought I would look at the council site about allotments they have re done it all looks good and new info about the sites added, found the allotment site I have applied for and waiting list say 3 months not 18 months so exciting

So may not be as long as a wait as I thought

GWRS Like the fire that looks so nice and warming, great you got loads done -  I see you have some tyre planters, I have one at home turned inside out and shaped and a few at the train station where I volunteer,  they do make great planters

GWRS have you got your two half plots together now or are they not next to each other

Fruitcake I am being good not getting anything even with 20% off T&M - maybe another time I will want something
