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

Primrosecottage, I bought a Penny lane a few years back in B&Q's clearance. Its done really well and bloomed almost straight away. We also have a Kifsgate rambler and Wedding Days, cant remember names of any of the others
