New to making Jam and chutney as well. Pleased to say those who have tried them have simply loved them.

I'm planning on putting a jar with xmas card on my neighbours door step ( thankfully only 10 house on my st ) Actually we all get on well so..........dying to see their reaction!

Growing your own fruit and veg to donate to food banks

Posted: 12/12/2013 at 09:44

At my allotment as a society I'm not aware of food being donated to a food bank. I do know that as individuals some 'plotters' do give their excess to local community centres and of course we exchange our goods with one another!

Or we leave our excess outside our 'shop' and any one can help themselves, this would include plants as well.

As a novice allotment holder I'm amazed at the generosity of my new gardening friends.

I've tried chilli powder with some success. In my experience what ever spray repellent you use, its ok for a few mths then they come back again! I will try the holly and see what happens.

Just got my first delivery of bare root fruit trees from Primrose on line retailer-so will not know until next year if they are ok or not. I tend to buy everything from my local garden centre as I'm a 'touch and feely person'

The fruit trees will be going into my plot today- yippee.

I too have managed to fill a builders bag up with leaves that simply love to fly into my garden. As I have never made a leaf mould before-do I leave the bag open or tie it up? Thank you.

Having never made a wreath before, Diana you make it sound doable so I will have ago tomorrow. I'm looking forward to searching the garden to do some art and craft!

Hi everyone

I'm a newbie to this forum. Really enjoyed reading the above comments on compost and can see what I need to do to create a fab compost! 

Bye the way Clueless- compost bin looks great.
