Sunshine is right.

I swear at swear by wordpress, but it's not for those who don't have a basic grasp of HTML if you want to make the most of it. Simplesite.com really is a great place to start and if you really get the blogging bug you can always consider taking the next step up to a more advanced platform if you want to take more control of your blog :)

Grow Your Own / Re: Horseradish
« Last post by Plot 1 Problems on Today at 00:36 »
I've used the base of an old damaged compost bin as a planter for my horseradish, about two foot tall and it's been great! I planted two thongs this year and dug a couple of decent roots like yours to make some horseradish sauce. It was delicious, not as fiery as I expected, but much tastier than the jarred stuff :)

Chatting on the Plot / Re: The Happy Birthday Slot
« Last post by Val H on Yesterday at 23:41 »
Many thanks and apologies for missing the birthday wishes but had a not expected, 65th birthday! First of all John sent out a reminder on books in time for X-Mas which resulted in 58 books for me to print out labels, check on paypal and mark as sent and pack with right seeds (some were doubles, triples and quads and needed different seeds) and get down to the post office! Plus we'd managed to arrange Bryan for Friday to paint the ceiling in the kitchen/diner which involved taking down curtains, curtain rods, all the stuff in the walls, emptying and removing books shelves, removing chairs, and goodness knows what else so was rather hectic! We're still in chaos now.

Good idea to grow it in a bucket as it can go really deep and is the devil's own job to dig some up  :lol:

thank you all so very much for all the help really appreciated :D you will be hearing a lot from me i think in the new year so thx in advance :D a nice gentleman down the allotment gave me a bag with 10 jermor shallotts in it to get me started he said, is it to late to plant them?

No it isn't Jermor is an Autumn/early Winter planting shallot. back in the day the traditional day for planting the sets was Christmas Eve, so time to get them in!

Don't screw them down into the soil though ot the clay makes a hard bit around the root plate and hampers the roots growing. Poke a hole deep enough for just the very tip of the shallot to show and pop one in, about 12 ins apart. They need cold weather to divide into a bunch of shallots under the ground: they are as hardy as they come

Grow Your Own / Re: Drainage issue - Any ideas?
« Last post by bayleaf on Yesterday at 18:38 »
I thought my French drain was holding its own.  :(
Here are some pictures attached to show what the problem is. I took these today. The first picture attached is the view looking north towards the recreation ground with my plot on the right and the path in between my plot and my neighbour's on the left.
The second attached image is the view looking west. The french drain which is flooded runs alongside the path.
The final picture shows the raised beds I have made recently - islands in my paddy field :(
