Category: First time allotment owner | Posted: Sun Mar 29, 2009 7:54 pm

Well it's done, the digging is finished. Tomorrow a very kind gentleman is going to rotovate for me. We have now decided on what we are going to grow, but not where about on the allotment we're going to grow, courgette,cauliflower,broccoli,potatoes,leeks, cabbage,asparagus,lettuce,spring onions, red and white onions, radish, peas, beans (french), we also have some strawberry and raspberry plants. I don't know if we will get much more on the allotment.

Well done so far. You've got an impressive list there, good luck with getting everything in the ground.

If you'd like advice about where to grow things on your allotment then why not PM Sjoerd as he has two allotments in Holland that he works. He grows vegetables on one and has made his second one into a beautiful flower garden. I'm sure he'd be willing to help you out.

What is an allotment? This is a new word for me, in garden terms. How big is it? Will you buy plants, sow seeds, or did you start seeds in your greenhouse there? Where is your allotment (broadly speaking)? It looks like lovely dirt to plant in.... and then how do you water? Or do you need to? Oh dear, I have gone on with too many questions, I know. It is just so interesting to me to hear about different ways that people garden. Good luck and if you feel like answering a question or two, I'm interested!! I can't wait to see what is next!

Hi Daisybeans, hope this answers your questions.

Q. What is an allotment? I would call it a small piece of land to, grow plants, veg and keep animals on.
Q.How big is it? Mine is 8m x 24m, don't know about others.
Q will you buy plants? No
Q.Will you sow seeds? Yes
Q.Did you start seeds in greenhouse? Yes
Q. Where is your Allotment? My allotment is about half a mile from where I live in Chesterfield, so a nice walk to get there.
Q. How do you water? We are to allowed to use hosepipes, so everything is done with a watering can.
