    I've just registered for the forum and thought I'd do a quick intro message.

    I've had a full size allotment for about seven years and even though I've learned a lot, I learn something new nearly every single day. That's why forum's like this are so good. I get to share some of my experience and at the same time learn from others. Since June last year I've started posting a Garden/Allotment videos on YouTube so if you have any suggestions for future videos then please let me know.

    So in order to start a discussion and to get to know others on the forum, my question is: Have you thought about planning your fruit and veg sowing and planting for 2021, and if so is there anything you are thinking of doing differently or trying for the first time?

      Hi Gary, welcome to Gardeners Corner:thumbsup:. I only grow Hardy Perennials but we have plenty of the GC Gang who have allotments or grow veg in their gardens so you should have plenty of replies from a very friendly and knowledgeable bunch.:love30::thumbsup:

            Welcome to Gardeners Corner Gary. :) I'm not really a vegetable grower but do grow runner beans which are my favourite vegetable and very rarely available to buy up here.

              Welcome to the forum!

              I usually grow a few vegetables in some raised beds. And I grow super hot peppers in my wee greenhouses during the summer.

              I've already got a drawing of my back yard and pencilled in what vegetables will go where. Note: I said pencil because I don't make the final decision about where seedlings will go until the spring.

              I assume you are in the UK so you have lots more growing advantages in diversity of plants that survive there and a much longer season. I'm envious :)

              I like to grow unusual items but have failed miserably with lots of them. Not a problem though as I just like to get outside for the sake of being out there when the snow is gone.
