Just an update

I am moving plots on the allotment! Mine is such a terrible shape to work and very sloping, so I have been given permission by the council to move to a flat plot which is just a big oblong area ! Yeah no more having to tackle little bits of ground here and there.

Although my plot 19 had character  and was different to any other plot I can't wait to get plot 30 into shape.  It was my daughter and her partners plot for a couple of years and they worked hard on it until their jobs gave them too little time to work it. So they gave it up this month.   I will make sure they get lots of lovely veg from me though.

We have already got a start as I only have a few weeks to move everything off my old plot.
I have moved the Tayberry and my lavenders, They will look very nice along the edge of my new fruit bed. Next to move is the fruit trees and black current and the red gooseberry .
I only hope they all survive.

I will post photos as soon as it all looks better and the shed and greenhouse has been moved over.

They should be fine Maureen - not as if there's much growing going on yet! It must be great to start afresh - you'll know exactly where to have everything. Good luck.

Hi Pam
Thanks for that ! I hope they do survive especially the lovely Tayberry which came from Victoriana nursery and is doing so well this year. We tied all the new shoots together carefully, carried it across to its new home, and tied it back on the supports.
If it survives the move we should be in for a bumper crop.

Next is the blackberry and red gooseberry .
Have a good weekend

Sounds like an awful lot of work, Maureen, but I am sure it will be worth it. Can't wait to see some pictures of your new place. P. x

Very brave to shift your whole plot, but I guess this is a good time of the year to do it - I hope the new one's not been left in too bad shape! I'm sure it'll be worth it in the long run.

Hi. Mark and Pam (English garden)
I just saw your comments. I have moved everything now and all fruit trees and shrubs settled in their new beds on plot 30. I hope they survive.
I will post photos soon.
