    First, post here, so Hi to all 🙂

    Just managed to bag myself an allotment local to myself

    Looking to grow the usual beans, potatoes etc, but wanted to know if there is any sort of allotment etiquette that i should know about?

    Thanks

    Had my allotment for a couple of years now and really enjoy working on it.

    My advice initially would be to work out the type of soil your working with as that will have an impact on the types of plants you can work with.

    What about trying Pippa Greenwood’s Winter collection as mentioned in this article https://goto4gardening.co.uk/maintaining-vegetable-plot/

    The advantage is you get expert advice from Pippa which is invaluable if you’re new to this game!

    How about planning some crop rotation, and starting to prepare the ground for them. Boris wrote a good article about this a few weeks ago

    At this time of year, it’s all about planning! Get digging and organising 🙂 I’ve seen some great bargains in shops like Wilkinsons

    It’s usually best to grow something different from your neighbours – then you’ll be able to give away your surplus fruit and vegetables, and take advantage of theirs :o)

    I too have just got a new allotment which I will be working with my son. It is on private land, a lovely position but unfortunately no mains water supply. We will have a water butt but could do with advice as to what sort of crops to grow that will not need too much watering.
