in my opinion there is not much point doing a ph test if you are then going to add different soil to it, you may as well do the test afterwards.

What state is your plot(s) in at the moment (fairly clear/full of weeds/brambles?). Can you post some photos.

Do you garden organically or are you happy to use chemicals ie. weed killer.
Are you looking for an allotment (full or to share) in South East Sheffield. PM me for details.

I wouldn't have thought you'd need to water much at the moment! Rotted manure may be better than expensive topsoil as well.
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.
