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...

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.

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

Well on that note this is where the retford gardener steps in a hunch back walks down the street and a boy and girl watch him and start to follow the hunch bag dude stops to look at them then carries on walking after a hour or so the hunch back dude is getting really mad and says to the boy and girl go away stop following me ! I haven't got your football !!!!
