LOOKING TOWARDS THE NEW YEAR ON YOUR ALLOTMENT

The New Year is almost on us, you should have your plot dug over and ready for the year ahead-may it be a good one! This is the best time to make a plan so that you ensure plot rotation, also so that you are aware of what beds might need special attention for example to lime the soil where your brassicas will be planted, dig in manure for those crops such as cauliflowers that need a soil rich in organic matter and which fertilisers to spread on specific beds to ensure all your crops get the best chance of growing well, as you know each crop has different requirements-an hours time researching allotment books is always worthwhile.

If you have fruit trees on your plot you need to clean around the trunk and once the leaves are off look to see what pruning is needed. 

LAST OFF ALL WHY DONT YOU SHOW OFF YOUR FABULOUS FLOWERS FRUIT AND VEG AT OUR AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY SHOW!
