New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Tycerrig your GH was a real bargin.


I find now is the time to get ahead. I use the winter months improving the structure on the plot by adding paths, repairing fences etc. 


You can plant  fruit trees, currant and gooseberry bushes and raspberry canes now.


Asparagus and new rubbarb crowns can be planted. If you want to grow flowers to cut or just to encourage pollinators it's not to late to plant some bulbs, tulips can still be planted now.


Good luck.

The boundary fence is always in need of new hedging, contacting the woodland trust is a good idea.


Gg. What is the B&Q wastage scheme?


Can't believe the cheek of people fly tipping. Someone left a Formica work top outside my plot.

We don't have a shop but do have a picnic area and bar b cue. 


A plant sale and coffee morning sound good, we are a member of a national Allotment association and can get discount seeds from some companies there maybe other benefits , I'd like to progress that.
