Moving house

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.

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.

Spent a couple of mornings on the plot. Got loads done. Lots of digging, finished another bed and started on the base for another GH.

Dafs are beginning to flower. Not sure what the other spring bulbs are, can't remember what I planted so it'll be a pleasant surprise when they flower

Quite a few new plot holders there today.
