Gardening is one of my greatest pleasures both here at home and on my allotment. I spend a great deal of time in my walled town garden fiddling around with new planting plans in an attempt to maintain a garden with all year interest.
Growing fruit and vegetables is enormously satisfying and led me to write Allotment Gardening an Organic Guide for Beginners. Since most allotment produce is annual, new skills can be learned and added to every year, plus it’s a great opportunity to try new varieties. My latest excitement is growing flowers. In the eighteen months since I started a cut flower bed on the allotment I have filled two vases most weeks and rarely buy flowers.
