And now for a subject I am remarkably ignorant about. I hear there is a number of spare allotments available from my local council and like an increasingly large number of people these days it seems, I have been giving some serious thought towards growing my own fruit and veg. I am not very knowledgeable about the science of getting the best out of crops so I won't take much of an active part in this thread. More likely to be a reader than a poster on here, but I haven't seen any gardening thread on this forum so I decided it would e a good idea to create one. This is a thread devoted to gardening tips of all kind, where anyone can discuss and exchange tips about methods of growing anything from flowers to spuds, where both experienced or first-time gardeners can hopefully find helpful ways of getting the best of whatever it is they choose to grow.
