Looking after your allotment - Getting started

To get off to a good start with your garden a planned approach and a little determination is all that you need. It is important to remember that the plot you receive may be overgrown and you may have to spend a lot of time gradually clearing and digging it.


Getting Started

  • Checking Your Soil Type
  • Choosing What To Grow
  • Monthly Jobs
  • Pest and Diseases

The BBC Gardening Guide is also a great place for detailed information.
