New allotment OMG...Part 2...

The guy on the neighbouring plot has planted out his spuds,says so long as there is no growth above ground a late frost won't harm them, I'm not convinced

When are you guys planting out your spuds...

Gg why not put on the notice pallets have been post coded due to theft.

Also have a walk up the plot and let one or two plot holders know you've had pallets stolen and would they let you know if they see anyone on your plot, just a thought...

You could also move them to the far end of your plot and cover with black plastic making them harder to steal...

Planted some gladioli bulbs today and finished the shed base.

Your solicitor should have sent you a long questionaire as to what you plan to leave and take, let them know what you plan to take. I'm taking some but the new owners won't know what as it's stuff which hadn't started to put out a show when they viewed or I'm splitting plants and leaving half behind.

Chances are the new owners will want to put their mark on the garden anyway.

Any bulbs you want to take will be fine if put in pots.

Hi, lightweeder, what a nice warm welcome from Lyn

Dahlias

Would it work if tubers were planted under black plastic at this time. I grow Dahlia's on an allotment and have that many tubers would need a few bags of compost to start them in pots?

I look at my strawberry patch each time I go thinking must sort it next but something else always seems more pressing.

Would love to see pics Gg. Better luck next time Ginagibbs.

The clocks will be changing soon so may go to the plot mid week. It was nice to get home this evening in day light

Hope the weather is dry at the weekend. I usually check but the weather forecast icon at the top of the screen has disappeared!

Growing asparagus...

I'm expecting 5 roots to arrive this month and have 5 more roots ready to be planted. The area is't the best, it will get dappled shade mid afternoon but full sun the rest of the time. It's had muck dug in, after planting can I put another layer of muck on top?

Gg, neighbour sounds arrogant, if he's had another plot for 7 yrs, he knows the rules...I'd be inclined to e-mail the council, let them know you've taken back your wood but that he has also been on your plot and taken a pallet.

I'd ask them to clarify the rule about not going on each other's plots and ask their advice about what to do if it happens again.
