|Purple mangetout 'Shiraz' grown from seed in my current garden|
I love the place where I garden now, because it is where my husband works and where his parents live, but it is shaded by many trees and overgrown by their root which absorb a lot of the moisture and many plants don't do very well there. Having a little plot somewhere else would be a dream come true, even if it was just rented.
The waiting times for allotments vary but can be as long as two years - even so, all that time to prepare! My mind is buzzing with ideas for interesting crops to grow and ways to encourage wildlife to come and help with it.
How about you? Where do you garden? What do you grow? Do you have any experience with allotmenteering? Please share in the comments section.
