New allotment OMG...Part 2...

I'm not getting notifications either, pressing the icon possibly wasn't the answer...


Went to water again this evening. I've taken alot of seedlings out of the GH, sprouts,  broccoli, spinach, chad, pea's, sweet pea and more, it's to hot for them during the day.


Ever so pleased, 16 out of 26 dahlia tubers have leaves. Don't want to tempt fate and take cuttings so they'll be planted out as they grow :)

I have one similar to pink Lillie's except mine is made of metal, it cost less to, they can be bought in this country. It folds up and doubles up as a seat when turned the other way.


Try googling garden kneeler...

It's OK on my phone, not yet seen it on the laptop. Not very impressed.. 

Sunflower growth and transplantation advice!

You could plant some out now providing they are covered. I use plastic pop bottles cut in half with a hole in the top or top left off. 


You will be surprised, I planted out about a dozen a couple of weeks ago, and there's been frost here in the NW, they are growing out off the pop bottles. 


Don't plant them all out, you'll then have some in reserve just in case the first lot are caught by a late frost.

Good advice from above.

Just to add, rake the ashes to sped over more ground. I used one area on the allotment to burn stuff, it did kill surface weeds and all the life in the top soil ie worms but a thick layer of well rotted muck soon brought back worms..

That was last year, re located raspberry's are doing really well, so to are autumn planted fruit tree's in the area. Happy growing

Scrggin. Have a nice holiday.

I'm going away in a couple of weeks. The guy on neighbouring plot is going to water my plants in GH.

Didn't know pigeons liked plum blossom. Mine isn't in flower yet but both Cherry trees are almost flowering.

Hi, GWRS.

It was a wet weekend here so used my allotment time potting up in the GH.
