Hi Tim, Good luck with your new allotment and your gardening journey. Like others have said once started it's very addictive and I believe you never stop learning.
Ask loads of questions as well as getting some books and research on the internet. There are loads of good people on here with some really good advice.
I'm only starting out on the veg this year with my tiny plot, but for cut flowers your are really spoilt for choice. Rudebekias, Cosmos particulary the white Purity type (free seeds with this months GW), sweet peas, snap dragons, Calendulas, the list goes on.
