  1. Brilliant! Can you be professional about allotments, though? Aren't they somehow inherently amateur, like the Olympics or something?

  2. Specifically his carrots. I have every sympathy, carrots are my nemisis too. I'm growing parmax (globe carrots) this year - to still not much sucess perhaps he would pass on any hints and tips...?

  3. I think if he can pay for the advice, that's OK, but he is short-changing himself on the fun of the learning process of gardening and the bits of knowledge we obtain as we move along with our gardens...

  4. Carrots - send him to me. Carrots are my favourite thing to grow and with my ooh... almost a whole years experience in the matter of growing carrots..ooh.. and for a small fee!!...

  5. I get your point EB I do like the definate un-professional aspect to allotmenteering. But, if I was having such trouble with my carrots maybe I'd feel differently, haha.

    I much prefer the plonk it in and see what happens approach and asking others on the plot what they did, it's a great way to learn and socailise too.

    Tash - you should put yourself forward as his expert, he may pay well!!!
