Welcome to Notes From the Allotment

Hello and Welcome to a blog about allotment fruit and vegetable growing, sustainable GYO, and more.

I’m an organic gardener based in North Manchester, and I grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables, as well as a fair few flowers, on Plot #59 at Langley Allotments, Prestwich. I’m also one of the custodians of the Plot #79 orchard: see OrchardNotes.com for more about my interest in orchard growing and top fruit care and management.
