New allotment OMG...

Posted: 24/08/2014 at 19:04

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

Hello you say you are not stressed but this seems to be worrying you ie. stress

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

Hello , with cyclamens make sure they are the "Hardy ones " , made that mistakes before and depeanding on the winter they might not survive

tyres on allotment

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 17:07

Hello , I inherited some ordinary tyres on my allotment and I have used them for herbs and they have do exceptionally well

however ,  2 other allotments have got tractor tyres left by-previous people and are proving a problem because of the sheer size we are talking of at least 12 ft across and take 4 men to move them ! the amount of soil to fill these would be huge!
