"It is not enough to cultivate plants well they must be used well"
We have the plants so please if you have a picture of an interesting plant combination which works well send it to me to be included in this section.
So in 2011 Judy (on the allotments) and with Capel Manor Horticultural College will be looking at good plant associations for the border so we can go into winter with a colour fix. After all we have fireworks in November to cheer us up.
Useful link for an inexpensive way to build up that interesting mixed border and have a lot of fun along the way. Lots of interesting and unusual seeds
