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!
So if you are a Bainton or Ashton resident who is concerned about the levels of chemicals sprayed onto your fruit and veg, or you want to reduce your food miles whilst enjoying the flavour of freshly dug potatoes or freshly picked peas, come along to the allotment’s open day on March 16th between 10am to 12 noon. You will be able to have a look at a micro plot, chat to allotment holders and (hopefully) get some help with your gardening queries.
We look forward to seeing you there.
The Allotment Committee
