 i agree with mattwragg94 growmore is a good choice i use wood ash as well as fertilizer and i also put dung on the ground to overwinter on the plot

If you have any well rotted manure put a good layer under the top 3-4" of top soil  :D
My allotment is like a never ending journey.... the work never ends!!
