Recommended Posts

Good luck to you! My Dads allotment got flooded in the summer of 07. We had to get new soil put in, and replant everything. It got flooded again this summer. :|

are the sunflowers for seeds, to attract birds, or just atmosphere?


I require hugs. Seriously, just give them to me, and youll see your little turtle again.

Well they've been grown in succession over the time I've had my allotment, starting off with radishes, because there a nice easy food to grow.

 

 

 

Looks like I can add peppers to the list as well now. Yummy.

Damn, whenever I've tried growing stuff, even in some kind of structured enviroment like you'rs the plants just give me the big 'FU' and grow hoever and wherever they want... makes it hard. My pineapples are the only things which don't wander to the other end of the bloody garden.

Not bad, not bad... But surely you could grow something a little more interesting, like some fruit thats a little less common or have a go at grafting plants etc. There are lots more areas of gardening which are much more interesting than just growing veg. Im growing Mango, Kapok, Dragonfruit, Chinese lantern, Passionfruit, Deadly Nightshade, Custard apple, Some kind of Pear-Apple cross and a load of different Cacti, so surely you could do something better than standard veg!!!
