I never stray too far from Alan Buckingham’s Allotment: Month by Monthbut if you do not want to get the most out of May here are some links and videos to help out this month. Plus some important dates to keep you busy for each of the 31 days.
Loseley Park Spring Garden Show; A day of inspiration, colour, plants. and gin We are fortunate to have Loseley Park around the corner from us. Each time we visit there is something new to see amongst the now very familiar five gardens. The plans for the allotment this year have been touched by the white and vegetable gardens. Next year we will try and capture the colour they have achieved this April.
This weekend is the Spring Garden Show with approximately a dozen nurseries and Loseley’s own. This Saturday we picked up some bronze fennel, some replacement borage which we were too quick to remove last year, Rudbeckia Goldsturm which is to make up for the failed germination in the growhouse this year and a bottle of Silent Pool gin to help avoid dehydration. However, we were tempted by plenty of herbs, sweet peas and seedlings but did not have enough hands to take them all back.
