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.

I’m away on holiday until December would you be able to just leave the last available plot for me please?

I'm out of town this weekend so unfortunately can't join but have Thursday off so may try and do some of my tidying up then - I'll save your number Helen in case I have any questions while i'm there

Hi everyone!

Thanks to everyone’s who has claimed their plot. Amelia, Tom, Lily and Helen, if you could pick your plot this week that’d be great! Any questions let me know.

I’ll be holding a group induction this weekend to show all new members how to use the hose and shed etc. Could everyone please post which time works better for them:

Saturday 24th Nov at 1pm or

Sunday 25th Nov at noon 

All members are welcome, I realise it’s a slow time of year but if anyone wants to get some overwintering done and say hi, that would be nice.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Thanks Maggie - I have put a "flag" on a plot (northernmost available plot top corner)

Will start clearing and start edging as soon as possible in the coming weeks.

Very excited! Look forward to meeting you all gradually x

Glad that helps. Alison is now number one on new waiting list. We have use of tennis shed. Big tools in there and I have left a box of various seeds for everyone. Suggest you bring your own gloves and hand tools each time. A lot of people use the shed and things sometimes disappear. We can’t be responsible. Shed padlock combination is 1999. All best Maggie

Hi Maggie,

thanks for the suggestion, in the meantime we went down to the Park again and moved our flag to the same plot but on the opposite side, we now have the bin-side mini-plot. It's now clear from weeds and have a green mesh fence.

As you suggested it'd be great to have Alison on the waiting list again for a subplot next to ours whenever that become available.

While we were there we wondered if there is a space to leave gardening material at all?

Thanks for everything and I look forward to meet you.

Another though, Patrizio... One of you could take the wedge or subplot and the other ask to go back on the waiting list. When and if we have another vacancy, thw person on the list could have a second subplot and we can then try to reorganise things so your two subplots are together. Naturally I can’t say when this might happen as it depends on whether/when anyone leaves. Let me know what you decide. Maggie

Sorry Patrizio but the plot where you planted your flag already belongs to someone else, so please remove it. The wedge or one of the sub-divisions is all that is available at present. Do you want to go ahead? I agree it’s a small space but it is all we have available for now. 

Comment by Patrizio on November 18, 2018 at 14:36

Hi Maggie,

that is really a shame as we plated the flag in a plot suitable for the two of us, cleared up the dead plants and went off to B&Q to purchase the fencing!

We put our flag back to that plot but refrained ourselves from doing the fencing work as we wanted to email you first just to clarify.

We saw the wedge-shaped one near the hedge, it's better than nothing but seem small for two people. How about we take two smaller adjacent plots? Or half of the one we originally planted our flag on (preferred option).

Let us know. Thanks.

Patrizio and Alison

Hi to everyone claiming plots!

Please note, where there is a centre line down the middle it is only the smaller, subdivided, half that has the free plots. All the full half-plots are already taken, dating back to a time when we got started and space was not as scarce.

Hope that's clear and sorry for any confusion.
