Another week of extremely hot weather like most of the U.K. I've been unbelievably busy, both down the plots and domestically this week again. I've intended writing another blog post since Sunday last but again not enough hours in a day lately. One of the allotmenteers I follow on Google has had his allotment vandalized and when I saw the video of the damage done, I stopped moaning about the hot weather causing problems down my plots and decided to post the video here.


  1. This is a pretty thorough attack. Someone must has been there for a while. Was this plot targeted or was it general site vandalism.

    1. It was certainly an extensive attack Sue. From what I gather it was a general attack and vandalism is on the increase in that general area. Some people just don't like to see things done in a special way maybe they are short of the care and attention the allotment had.

  2. What a beautifully kept allotment - well, it was! There are some mindless idiots about aren't there - why would they do such a thing - they want stringing up.

    1. It certainly was a wonderful allotment Elaine probably why the mindless idiots targeted it. They should be hung up on 5 bar gates like crows used to be.

  3. That's dreadful Rooko, what idiots, do they have any idea who did this. Terrible.

    1. Hi Annie_H it was shocking to see such a marvelous allotment spoiled like that. I don't think the vandals have been identified but if they are they should be made to put things right and pay for the damage also.

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…

Rooko's April Top 10 Tips & Tryouts

1. Clear away spent flower heads from spring flowering bulbs such as hyacinth & daffs. Don't cut away or discard the foliage as it will replace the bulbs energy for its next flowering.

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…
