We've only got our allotment last year and managed to clear it of stones and rubbish and keep it more or less weed free. We grew some veg last year. This year we were busy with the house move and so we've not been to the allotment at all. What can I do now that could make it look ok? I'm thinking of getting the weeds out and making it a flower garden of sorts perhaps? But what can I grow given that I'm so late to the party this year? Allotment is small, 15 by 20 meters maybe, and I'm a complete beginner. I'm looking for easiest possible solutions please.
Great advice from Zebra. I'd cover whatever you're not using and focus your attention on making as many beds as you can get going in the time you have. If you buy plug plants, you can still grow loads of stuff - courgettes, beans, brassicas, tomatoes etc etc etc
Certainly not too late -- I am still planting out... You can sow direct , in weeded area :- lettuce/radish/spring onions beetroot baby leaf spinach. french beans you can buy plug plants to plant out :- celery sweetcorn courgettes/squashes -( good ground cover as Spotted said) brassicas for over winter- sprouting broccoli etc And the more the merrier on the allotment thread!
