Chris. 172...what are your spuds chatting about...

New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Gg...I found an old clay pipe on the plot a few weeks ago, there were golf balls on the other site... 

GWRS... hope the weather picks up for you, a cruise sounds nice...enjoy... ...

Started to put up the shed yesterday, just had the felt to put on the roof, and more brackets, to fix it to the ground but it's rained today and looks like more rain over the next few days. Let's to hope we don't get strong winds or it could be blown into the next plot ... 

Everyone sounds really busy. Not planted out any veg this yr yet. Pea's sown on kitchen roll, spinach and sweet pea are doing well though, I've potted them up and the peas all have their first true leaves.  Not so sure about the broad beans, they haven't yet to put on a show but I've more seeds, so will sow some more at beginning of April.

I've alot of freebie flower seeds from magazines, far to many to sow indoors so will wait till next month aand sow them in the GH with a sheet of glass over the tray.

Haven't planted my asparagus roots yet, can't decide on the spot for them. Does anyone know if the roots are invasive and would they grow in dappled shade. I've a choice of three places, all slightly different.

Gg, I hope they catch him too.

My spuds have chitted at different rates, nice purple shoots though but here in the NW we are still getting lots of frosty mornings.

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?
