Queens Park Allotment (active group)

Most of the plot is now divided into mini-plots, with individuals each taking responsibility for a numbered mini-plot. 'Garden together' events, where as many members as possible come along are posted on the website regularly. Large tools are provided but please bring your own small trowel, fork and gloves. If you are interested in having a mini-plot, please register on the website and post a comment with your enquiry.

Hi, I’d like to keep my triangular plot, however Colm could take the plot that is by the timber picket fence that I was also going to adopt.

Please reply to this message

Hi everyone, I know it's cold and bleak right now but soon the growing season will begin again, so the familiar question ..,

Do you want to continue with your plot in 2018?

Have you definitely got time to cultivate your plot and join in with the Big Dig and some garden togethers?

If you can't commit, please let me know so I can reallocate your bed. Any time you want to re-join, you can have priority. 

A simple answer will do. 'I want to keep my plot.' or 'I don't want to keep my plot.' 

Thanks, Maggie

Hallo to our new member, Colm. I was talking to Mick Guerin recently, Colm, and it seems we may be allotted some space in the Children's Zoo area - possibly four more plots - when it is redeveloped, they say in April. If that happens, there will definitely be a plot for you. If not, it will depend on whether or not all the current plot holders want to continue in the coming season. So there is hope! Maggie

Hello! I'm a local QP resident and intrigued by these mini plots. Are they are any available? Dreaming of having my own veg to have this summer!! Cheers, Colm

Hi everyone! Winter is really with us and there won't be any more veggie growing until the spring. Don't forget to order yourselves some seeds during the armchair months. I get mine from Marshalls Seeds but there are loads of options...

Just to say welcome to Menad, who has taken on Julienne's plot. Julienne doesn't have time to maintain a plot but will still be coming along to Garden Togethers.

Plans for next year, as well as the Big Dig, include possibly building a shed with a living roof for our tools. It would need the Park's support and a grant, so we're currently in the early stages of putting out feelers...

All best, Maggie

No, it wasn't you I'd forgotten about, Barbara, it was the name of one of the refugee gardeners. Sorry you couldn't make it to the gathering and great to hear about your growing successes. Maggie

Hi Maggie, not sure if it was me that you forgot the name of, I have the raised bed in the playground, the one closest to the big slide side. We grew cherry tomatoes this summer and managed to get a lot!! Will plant some herbs for the winter then more tomatoes next year!

Thanks to everyone involved yesterday for their energy and good humour. Sorry about those of you would couldn't make it... You missed out on an enjoyable event. 

A few changes to tell you about - please tell me if I'm wrong about any as I'm not sure I quite remember! Rawa is taking new bed 4 and the Kalafat family staying with new bed 2 - buddies for both are Helen and Daniel. Helene is buddy for someone whose name I've forgotten (can you remind me, Helene?)  but who is coming along and they are staying on new bed 1. Kirsty is moving from her raised bed in the children's playground area to new bed 3, as she mostly can't get to her current bed with the playground closing so early. Julienne has given up her bed and we have a new member from Algeria, Menad, who is taking over her space. Beds 5 and 6 (Maggie and Fausto buddies) are currently unallocated, as is the raised bed Kirsty has given up, and I will be in touch again with Salusbury World in the spring to see if there are new people interested in taking them on.

All best, Maggie
