our allotment has a show coming up in a few weeks, and several people I know on the site would like to enter,but apart from knowing your exhibit should be clean and free from pest damage what else could we do to get them looking good and corect?

How tidy is your garden?

Posted: 15/03/2013 at 07:15
yup, same as many others, not too many manicured parts,but loving attention to the plants the main aim,and the "wild bit" at the bottom of the garden for the bugs and mammmals.

Front garden plants?

something prickly if it is a low wall as it deters "invaders", and altogether make it colourfull, its the best way to get neighbours to talk to you, and walk down the road and see what THEY grow,or grows well in the area.The other replies must have given you lots to go on!

took up beekeeping years ago, never more than 3 hives ,almost all 2nd hand equiptment(ok if you are really clean and tidy) top and trousers(ex mod) white. only need a hat with veil attached new.washing up gloves fine. Bees from swarms,AND lots of start up help from local beekeepers assoc.on line, EVERY county has one,even London.Joining is vital, you get insurance with your membership,monthly mag. county news.and the inspiration from members,so many of whome are newcomers,you can take beekeepers exams..even for basics its an achievement..you can even buy polystyrene beehives now,how cool is that! as for varoa,there are fairly effective natural protections for bees ,never fear..and as for all that expensive stuff bee groups usually have it to hire to members.GO FOR IT..NOW
