New allotment OMG...

Fruitcake they first earlies are in the ground the shortest but the 2nd and main crop are all in the ground at the same time the main are just in there for longer - so best to have a separate bit of ground you can have them planted near to each other

Like if you planted them all the same day you lift the first crop shorted amount of time and then second and then main the longest it is just the length of time they are in the ground for   

Sometimes people say if you don't have space for them all grow fist and second croppers as main crop are more likely to get problems e.g.. blight, you could grow them in a bag if not enough space

David K Woolmans with 10% off in the GW mag now new for next year

Keep going Woodgreen Wonderboy as we will be there

Gardenmaiden that is great lots of fruit for you

Zoomer44 oh no with the fruit trees  but good luck - you are definitely a gardener moving plants around after planting them

Zoomer yes I mean the GW mag offer with the other bits as well looks a good one

The potato show I go to has seed swap, plants, trays gifts and lots of pea and bean seeds - I got my peach tree from there last year lots of stuff to look at and get

we just take some food with us as they do not have much to eat there apart from cups of hot drinks and biscuits for lunch - so we take sandwiches and doughnuts need extra sugar boost for looking at all the spud and picking which ones to go for    

GWRS got my egg boxes ready as well

That was good Roy that you saw the lady that gave you the raspberry canes

GWRS that a lot that you managed to get done, was there newer bark chippings?  enjoy your time tomorrow up the allotment

Roy if you have a whole plots it is probably equal to Fruitcakes 2 x half plots

I am going for the potato offer from T&M want the bags too also the spuds

Like this thread - My Challenge is to get the paving slabs out of the garage and put in the new turf area

To grow more plant from seeds, also to grow some cape gooseberries when I order the seeds 

Lilylouise saw yours in my Garden News mag - nice garden pics


Posted: 30/12/2014 at 22:24

Yes Star gaze lily I was good still lots of things that need planting out yet for here and station so thought I need to keep away from them

Q for the new years day flower count do we count all flower heads on violas or is it counted as one?
