  • Hi from Sunny (sometimes) Suffolk!

    Hello everyone, I'm relatively new - just a couple of posts about an artichoke last summer that turned out to be a cardoon so thought I'd introduce myself properly. I took on my first half allotment last year and had a pretty successful season despite the drought in this part of the world! Lugging heavy cans of water has left me with a frozen shoulder so I'm finding out about the no-dig method. Haven't seen a thread about it so may start one - I know there'll be lots of advice from all the knowledgeable folks on here. Looking forward to sharing the next growing season.

    Hello Bramley and welcome. The no-dig method is very popular here and there are lots of practitioners who will be able to help you.

        Hi Bramleyapple, good to hear that you are officially joining us.
        Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you are probably right.

          Welcome I don't post very much as I'm busy reading and learning This is a great forum and full of wonderful advice.

          I think we must be getting all your rain up here, we haven't had a rain-free day for a couple of months

                Welcome!

                You'll still have to water with a no-dig plot

                  Hello and welcome Bramleyapple, lovely to meet you.
                  Sorry to hear about the frozen shoulder, my OH has had that too -

                    Hello, and welcome to the Madhouse!

                    I'm a fan of the 'No Dig' method too, but mainly because I'm lazy. Lasagne Beds is another search you could do - just in case you've got to the bottom of those others!

                          Wow, that's wonderful, Two Sheds. To true, watering can't be escaped though I hope we get a bit more rain than last year down here, but if I can save on the digging...

                          I'll explore the threads thoroughly - have already begun gathering cardboard!

                            Have read all the threads, Two Sheds and love Supersprouts! Now i have a use for those bags of straw...
