Thanks raisin, I think I will have to do some research, but just having 2beds for annuals & many more perennials sounds like a great idea, not just as its we don't go up more than twice a week so traditional veg that needs lots of care is definitely out, I definitely want elder for flowers& berries, and species rise for hips, I like the idea of plenty of herbs, any good suggestions to grow near fruit tree ? There are loads of raspberries& a few black urea TVs, any more ideas from you knowledgable lot? thanks in advance

Thanks obelixx,   will read further, think permaculture sounds a good plan for our allotment

can anyone help me with the difference between   Permaculture& organic gardening? At our allotment im thinking of putting cardboard down on some areas then covering in compost

& & planting on top , I first read it in an article by charles dowsing, then saw it ( I think on a repeat of big dreams small spaces) mentioned by s couple who are leading permaculture experts, I love the idea of leaving what's in plCe( fruit trees raspberries& a few currants& adding to it so we only leave a couple of areas to grow veg, i hate bare soil! Can anyone advise me re this method ? Thanks in advance
