Running an allotment sounds scary, but it’s all about getting familiar with the process and executing the project in the correct manner. Once you are assigned a plot, the first step is to eradicate all the weeds and then regularly hoe the plot. Afterwards, it’s time to get familiar with your plot and understand the soil. Evaluate the conditions of your plot, the type of soil, the weather conditions you’ll be working with and have a chat with the neighbouring plot holders.
As a new allotmenteer, try looking at local plots to get a feel of what it’s like, running your own. Looking around and learning from others is a great way to see what does well and what things to avoid when starting out on this new journey!
Once you know how to work with your soil type and the specific conditions, you are ready to plan your allotment’s layout and start growing delicious fruits and vegetables.
