Has anyone got the problem on their Allotment? Is things growing very slowly because of the weather.

At present Iím not sure whether I am worried more about the weather or the slugs.
Funnily enough reading my paper this morning a gardener in London says his allotment is doing well. Perhaps the London area has a microclimate??
Keep digging

Yeah the forecast is much better now, things should grow away and slugs will be less. Might even need to water outside for the first time in a full year next week  :lol:

Yep, same up here in Yorkshire - just the potatoes are looking anything like decent. Peas, French Beans, sweetcorn and squashes all sulking............  :lol:
Fingers crossed the change in weather due over the weekend and into next week will give them all a boost!
