New allotment OMG...

Posted: 29/01/2014 at 10:16

Sure I saw somewhere else on here that one member had bought some of the pallet collars from ebay and there is a link..?

I got mine from work and they have metal lugs on each corner so you can slot them together to make them higher.  I'll have a go at recycling anything for the garden, glad to see we all have similar ideas

Deano that's brilliant and just at the right time I have 3 of those pallet collars and was just drawing up my plans over the weekend trying to figure out what to do with them as I had them detailed as 'veg'. Perfect, thanks

Me too Nut, I've had problems with it all weekend but its says we have until Feb 16th to register our results, hopefully its just traffic from everyone trying to use the site at the same time.

We had very few birds in the garden in the hours we chose over Saturday and Sunday but now the garden is alive with them, I guess they knew we were watching .

Colder weather is coming!

Thank you both I've had the seeds in the fridge anyway because I read they need a cold period to germinate so maybe some good can come out of this horrible frost.

What a lovely generous idea, I run a school gardening club and we always need seeds , so your offer would be a godsend for me especially as the last strong winds broke our greenhouse so all find raising will be directed there, if I can work out how I'll message you my email.  Thank you in advance x

If you want to PM me your address Eve I can send you some wildflower seeds ready for sowing this spring

What a lovely lawn Tracey your OH obviously looks after it well, wish mine was like that but I'm afraid the lovely local mole had other ideas.

An island bed around the two trees would look lovely too, and I guess it cuts the mowing and tending for the OH so you could spend more time with enjoying it
