Morning all. I am new to this site as well as to gardening really and as i am more into veg growing i was wondering if there was a particular area on the site specifically for vegetables and/or allotments please?



Hi Jvt and welcome to GoY if you scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on 'V' you'll see two sections on veg. Mostly though the veg. questions just appear as part of the site. If you type the name of a specific veg. in the search box you will see all the questions relating to it. Or type Teegee he is a member who is knowledgable about veg. growing.

Great news to get your allotment I got my first half one last Feb and the second adjoining half in July due to the tenant giving up. The big job is going to dig the weeds out we found it easier to split the ground up into separate beds with canes and string and work on one bed at a time also try to find what the previous tenant grew there so you can plan some sort of crop rotation. Get to know the other tenants they are a great source of information and they will be able to tell you what grow well and what does not I found out that for some strange reason nobody seem to be able to grow red onions or they do not do well on our site . Get a shed ask around I got mine for free these are so useful also consider a Polly tunnel so you can start sowing seeds earlier than outdoors and you can also grow cucumbers, tomatoes, and melons in summer inside. When you start to plan and dig you could also get some onion sets and garlic planted now wilkos have them but just remember that these will be in the ground until around Jul/Aug.

Have a look at my blogs about my allotment
