Climate Change, Allotments, Vegetables

Setting-up and maintaining a plot can seem daunting, particularly for the inexperienced vegetable grower. If you are thinking about this idea then check out a new book called The Allotment Source Book by Caroline Foley which is a complete reference for everything to do with managing an allotment, from soil and plot organisation to propagation and pruning.

This book is perfect for all types of plotholder, from the non-working person who can spend time every day caring for the plot to the busy parent and worker who only has an hour or two at the weekend. All practices and methods covered are organic, and throughout the book there is advice from seasoned plotholders and various examples of 3-year cycles.

This really is the definitive guide to running a successful and productive allotment.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
