Seed Potatoes
Just a Chance

This post is mainly for my UK readers. If you need some more seed Potatoes check out your local B & Q. I've just got back from my local B & Q where they are selling seed Potatoes (discounted) for £1.50p per bag. There were around 25 good sized Potatoes per bag and I only discarded 6 which were in bad condition from 4 x 1.75kg bags. King Edwards, Desiree and a couple of more varieties were available.

    1. Probably why they were being sold off cheaply, but the shoots were in good condition and not brittle although I removed a few. The Potatoes were in good condition so I took a chance.

    1. Sorry you missed the bargain Elaine. I only went into B & Q to spend a gift voucher and because it was raining. I came out with 4 bags of potatoes and 60 gladiolus bulbs for 98 pence.

The Last Post

As my readers will already know I moved to a new house (bungalow) last year. Much work, updating, d. i. y. and a vast amount of gardening and landscaping needed doing to the property. Most of the gardening to the rear of the property has now been completed just as the Wintery weather begins to take hold. A good sized vegetable plot is one of the features in the back garden prepared and ready to be utilised starting with next Springs sowing and planting. With this in mind I spent a couple of weeks last month tidying up N1 plot before deciding to give it up just over a week ago. Due to the amount of work on the house and gardens this year my blog posts have been just about none existent. Over the past seven years I have enjoyed reading many other allotment/gardening blogs and meeting/talking to lots of other gardeners on the "net". I hope my blog has been of interest and some use too, to all who have spent their time looking in on it. Good luck and best wishes to all you love…

2. If the weather in your area has been dry enough lately and your soil is not wet and heavy, now is the time for some rotavating/digging, adding compost/manure as required to the soil.

3. Air temperatures are still relatively unpredictable in my neck of the woods at present, it may be worth checking the germination temperatures of various seeds before sowing takes place.

4. Easter weekend was the traditional time for getting your potato tubers into the ground. Don't put them into wet soil and remember Easter weekend is early this year so another couple of weeks wait isn't a problem.

5. More overnight frosts have been happening in this part of the country recently, compared to the past few years. So if you are sowing planting this month keep cloches or other plant protection equipment a…
