Bridgette's March Bulletin

It is great that March is here!  We have got through winter and the allotment is ready again to begin another year! 

Of course it is a really busy time and it is easy to feel overwhelmed with masses of things to do and remember – so once again, especially if you are new at gardening, do keep a diary - it will really help you next year – not just as a reminder of what to do, but also as a way of thinking about planning your plots.  Also if things are not so successful it is a good idea to re think how to manage your plot next time.
