The Horti's Allotment - May


Ready… steady… grow! What a difference a few weeks make. At the end of April, warm weather felt like a distant dream. However, May has turned into a lovely month and there has been a lot of activity on the allotment, with the plans for the different allotment plots starting to come to life.

Peas, sweet peas, beans and brassicas have been planted:

Onions and potatoes planted in April are growing well:

Strawberry plants are in flower:

Asparagus and Swiss chard are ready for harvesting:

And wallflowers bringing some great colour:

We're looking forward to the warm weather continuing, and combined with some rain let's hope June brings a great growing month!
