New allotment OMG...

Posted: 20/05/2015 at 09:44

Gardengirl , I paid £20 for my greenhouse at the allottment last year but the chap took it down and delivered it to the A 

my self , nephew and brother in law put it up , I bought wooden posts which I screwed the base onto , in side I put a membrane down , gravel and small slabs down the middle but because we then acquired the other half of our A we left the glazing , hoping to do it this bank holiday 

A couple of people on our site have got grapevines in thiers and I might do that not decided yet

best of luck

Having " celebs " helps promote gardening to a wider audience which can't be a bad thing

blooming cold today , just put heating back plus " hissing " it down in Lincoln , might light  a fire later to watch Chelsea

on a positive note the garden/allottment really needed it
