What an amazing experience! Good luck with it all.
I am showing at Tatton not as just me but as part of the Trafford allotment entry. I do not know what days I am allocated, as we have only eight passes to share out. I am making a three sisters bed, an old American Indian technique that uses companion planting of pumpkin, sweetcorn and beans.I am likely to spend at least one day in the preparation section, ensuring that my entry is properly laid out. I have my pumpkins, beans and sweet corn growing under careful protection.
I love gardening, thanks for the tips on the unsung heroes of the herb world, sorrel, and lovage. I had no idea but love learning new and useful additions to everyday life. Thanks for the tips.
Thank you for taking the trouble to leave this comment- I'm very impressed to hear that you are showing at Tatton. I don't think I can get there this year sadly- I could have looked for you!
