New allotment OMG...

Posted: 08/05/2015 at 10:26

Thats a good idea KEF, I was wondering what to do with all that lovely soil in my potato sacks.

Had my first crop of radishes yesterday, yum (not too peppery).   Will try and get my beans in this weekend, but off to Malvern Flower show on Sunday.

Thanks Garden Girl. Not sure if there is a waiting list at the moment, but I am in contact with the allotment officer at the council and I asked her for first refusal on that plot, or if they want to reduce its size that I would be happy to take it on. If I see the chinese people again, i will suggest it. Hope your backs not aching with all the digging, What are you going to plant when your new beds are dug? 

Like the water bottle idea Fruitcake.

Sorry to jump in on your topic Wonkywomble, but perhaps some one can advise on when to prune a straggly Camelia. I have one in clay soil that I put horse muck on and its very happy. Just inherited one about the same size ie 3' but its been in a pot and looks very leggy and lopsided
