Drop kicks? Nice one!I have booted them over next doors garden!  Just like johnny Wilkinson in the 2003 rugby world cup final.what a match.slugs I throw them on top of the garage for the birds to eat.

Yay! I have an allotment, but has been badly neglected.,,Help!:(

Yes that's right they do,I would go with a early variety and a late one.pumpkins are great for storing, into the following year.I would recommend growing what you like first and then try other vegetables and fruits.with pumpkins add lots of compost, the more the better in a sunny position. Good luck !

Stinging nettles

Hi,nettles are a great source of nitrogen, if you have a compost heap cut them back hard and put them on there.on the other hand if you don't want them either spray them with round up,or just dig them nettles mean that you have good healthy soil.

Hi,I would say to get rid of the weeds,use a hoe for immediate results.and everytime you visit the allotment go over it again.leave the weeds where they are,because the sun will kill them off and then you could dig them into the soil.grow the vegetables that you really like first, and then try others.if you can set up a compost bin then do that as well good luck,and get in touch anytime.

A welcome return,something good to view,instead of mindless rubbish that's aimed at the chav brigade. People with dirt ingrained in their hands,  gardeners the last of a ancient breed.and while I'm here,I'm really trying to create community gardens here in retford. There is talk of doing it,and I'm getting e mails from the locals,has anyone ever had this problem? I want to get gardeners to visit retford.I'm on this 24 hours per day.along with work gardening... The allotment...

leaf mould

Posted: 28/02/2015 at 01:29

A couple of months ago a collected a small amount of leaf mould,and mixed it up with my homemade compost,and some spent compost using it to sow seeds and the result was great.the type of leaf hawthorn.its very fine when rotted down,I cannot recommend it enough.I shall be collecting plenty more hawthorn leaf mould from my allotment plots.

First house, first garden, new gardener!! help/advice needed!

Hi Charlotte, my advice, if I may offer it get rid of all that grass,give the soil a good feed with compost,really dig it in well and grow whatever vegetables and flowers that you like.go fifty fifty with food and flowers.and most of all enjoy it.gardeners world starts a week on Friday check it out!good luck kev
