This section of our website has been written with the novice gardener in mind. Included is advice on what you can do on your allotment on a monthly basis, plant profiles which give some background notes on the different types of fruit and vegetables available to grow, and a section on different gardening methods. These pages will hopefully provide you with a starting point for your allotment.
Got a growing dilemma?
