Great gardening meeting this evening and just sorry nobody made it from Queens Park allotment.  The other groups are keen for volunteers so if anyone asks to join QP allotment and there isn't room please direct them to the William Saville & Dunbar, Fiveways or Brondesbury Station groups all of whom garden on a communal basis.

Thanks, Maggie, for your helpful advice. I tried to take out as many weeds and horseradish shoots yesterday, so please do take out the rest. Sorry that I can't join you on Saturday, as I am working out of London. All the allotments, and the whole garden, is looking so lovely!

So far it's me, Jenna and Caroline on Saturday from 9.00 - 11.00. Can anyone else join us at that time? Maggie

Hi All.

Julienne, pepper seeds don't usually go straight into the ground. They get raised in pots and planted out later. They are not really suited to our climate so you have to start them indoors earlier on (same as tomatoes). It's too late for that this year, I'm afraid. They won't have a long enough growing season to get around to fruiting. Beetroot is good though and, yes, start harvesting the larger radishes in the row and that will create more room for the little ones to grow. Julienne, you have horse-radish in your allotment I'm afraid and it needs to come out. If you can't get to the allotment tomorrow morning - we are there from 9 - 11 - shall we dig it out for you?  Maggie

Sounds great Caroline. See you then.

Thanks Julienne I might grab some sweet pepper seeds to try. Re radishes... I have gauged harvest by size... Mine seem to have grown rapidly and in abundance.
Maggie Jenna I should be at the garden on Saturday morning between 9 and 10.30.

I planted beetroot seeds today, and have some leftover if anyone wants to use them - also have red and green (sweet) pepper seeds if anyone can use them too?

Radishes growing well - when is the best time to harvest them?

Hi Maggie, I can be there on Saturday morning to help out with the search and destroy.
