I have recently acquired an allotment after many years of waiting.
I have a bathtub there and I am considering sowing carrot seeds within it as I have seen number of other allotment owners have done so with good results.
Please could you tell me what type of soil I need to use within the tub and do I need to put a layer of stones in the bottom as with other planters to aid drainage.
I would also welcome any other tips on cultivating a successful allotment.
At the moment I have five rows of flowering potatoes, although my runner beans are looking a bit sad ` although I have fed them today with nitrogen, so hoping for the best.
