Hello , have you thought about putting weed membrane underneath if you use gravel , let's the water through and helps stops the weeds , also any weeds that germinate are easily pulled up

you could plant some ground covering gerinums , but beware they will need cutting back on a regular basis 

Bark chipping path look nice but difficult to weed without use of weed killer 

whatever you do best of luck

Hello Zoomer I would put some onion in now , they always seem to have a stronger flavour than spring planted but could be my imagination !

our allotments are in a rural setting so we can have a fire when we  like but only in those bins with a lid & chimney , have had lots this year but in consideration of other plot holder I have them late evening

Hoping to spend the weekend at the allotment 

Any wine makers out there?
