This year the allotment committee are providing, for a very modest rent, micro plots, measuring approx 3m x 1.25m (10’ x 4’.)
Can you be tempted? If you don’t have the time or energy for a full size plot then one of these small plots could be the answer. They are large enough to grow a row of strawberries and a row of autumn raspberries, providing you with fruit from June to October. Or, new potatoes could be planted now followed by your choice of veg for the summer months – Helpston Garden Centre offers a wide range of potatoes and vegetable seedlings, with free advice! Of course growing veg isn’t your only option, try annuals or dahlias to give you flowers for the house – with not an air mile in sight!
