Growing Advice

We are now pleased to be able to tell you that we have a new Horticultural Advisor to answer member's questions about growing fruit, flowers and vegetables on your allotment. Aaron Hickman is Head Gardener at a large private estate in Yorkshire.  Aaron also works as a stand in ‘gardening expert’ of BBC Radio Leeds, gives private talks and lectures and advises  members of the public at the Harrogate Flower Shows. Aaron has a special interest and fascination with the tools, techniques and tenacity of the Victorian and Edwardian gardens and gardeners, with a deep interest in the running of traditional walled kitchen gardens.

Send in your queries about allotment growing, along with your membership details to and we will forward to Aaron.
