I have an allotment and seem to be growing things for the benefit of bugs, birds, squirrels rather than for myself. I would like to learn what best to grow, how to grow it and to practice good gardening techniques.
A balanced veggie diet.
Privet hedges, hazelnuts for the squirrels, apples and veg. for the grubs, brassicas for the wood pigeons and a miscellany of stuff for the compost heap. A selection of soft fruit bushes is on its way to me now, so I shall be planting raspberries, blackberries, currents, honeyberries, gooseberries and a few other things.
