Bricks for lawn edging

Best of luck

New allotment OMG...

Posted: 23/08/2014 at 21:36

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
