OK not sure AVF is the best place to ask about allotments (will be signing up to a gardening website, any recommendations?) but hey ho... So hopefully we should be getting our very first allotment this afternoon so was just wondering if anyone owns an allotment and has any hints and tips for first time owners. Any mistakes or things you would do different? Also looking for idea's for growing something a little different to the usual carrots, cabbage, etc. I will be using it for growing flowers/plants for pots, baskets, etc and the Mrs will be growing all the other things. TBH its more of an excuse to get out the house and do some exercise. Many thanks, TR.
