How did you get into gardening?

Well done to Macavitythecat , very nice looking garden

My parents had a large garden and a big greenhouse , lots of fruit trees so always helped / hindered , Dadalso had an allottment at one time but to be honest I treated that as a great big playground 

Went I had my own houses also found it relaxing from the pressure of work , following early retirement had agreen house built , always wanted a bigger garden so got an allottment which has gone really well

Really nice to see pictures , will put my garden on when off Holiday 

Happy gardening everybody

Whey plotter , good that you have the plot , some one did the the right thing , agree better to  keep quite and get on with things , they obviously known they screwed up 

Personally I would help in the shop so I could occasionally remind them of errors 

best of luck with the allotment

Whey plotter , back to your original problem lots of advice and suggestions , basically the people who run it seem totally incompetent , you should get your money back , the idea of sharing the other plot seems good to me , as it wasn't his fault either , if he want help that is 

Have you got time to join the committe and sort them out

Best of luck
