Planting Begins on Plot 11w

2 comments

I have some news to share….I’ve finally planted something on Plot 11w! All the raised beds are in and the paths mulched with bark, it’s such a great feeling to move on to the next stage, planting! It’s a ridiculously exciting time and makes all the hard work to get to this point all the more satisfying.

I planted 2 redcurrant bushes and cannot wait to see them spilling over the paths, dripping with berries. I’m waiting on 3 blackcurrant bushes on my other allotment to go dormant and then I will move them over, probably November time. I will also move a rhubarb crown from my garden at home to plant in a bed towards the back of the plot and 4 gooseberry bushes will share a bed.

My plan is to interplant the fruit beds with plenty of bee friendly flowers, I’m going to have so much fun choosing and sowing seeds. I might look into growing a dahlia or two, a welcome splash of colour for this time of year.
