New allotment OMG...

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 16:51

Hello , I pay £50 pa for my allotment which is 30ft by 130ft which goes to the Farmer/land owner and £3 to the allotment association to be a member of national allotment. Ass

 we have water on site and we pay £3 to fill a water cube which holds a 1000 litres 

you have to provide your own shed and water cube but what can get for £1 a week !

I think it is good value

Nice idea to put pictures of your allotments on the site , will try and work out the technology and put one of mine on

as any body grown sprouts , this is my second attempt , last year they turned out great  lets hope it works this time but having been on holiday for 2 weeks and just popped up to the allotment they have like " soot " on them , any idea what it is ?

spending the next 3 days up there to tidy up then on to the garden , sweet corn looked ready to harvest as well

Bricks for lawn edging

Hello , simple solution which I have done is to us block paving bricks , beveled edges as well , either just lay them on sand or buy some ready mixed cement that you just add water 

Best of luck

Hello , I have an allottment and it states in our rent agreement about keeping it tidy etc

however if there is a problem plot ie. badly overgrown with weeds they are told to tidy it up but are given plenty of time , recently a plot holder had a replacement hip so lots of us helped her out

however we did have one allotment holder who kept Chickens , unfortunately they where being neglected and the plot was becoming a rubbish tips , atracting rats so they where given notiice to quit
