Comments on "Green Christian Allotment Group meetings"
Thanks Iain, and yes fruit trees are also good to grow in garden or allotment. I haven't done rhubarb, but did grow sunflowers and am trying to re grow their seeds just now. I have parrots hat will much appreciate very fresh seeds. Brassicas require netting, I got mine from allotment shop.
Fruit trees are worth thinking about too although cherries (and even pears especially Williams) can become bird food. Don't underestimate rhubarb while runner beans are easy and productive as are courgettes and you can get the kids to help with sunflowers; I used last year's heads to feed birds over the winter but ate a few myself too. I would say that it is easy to be overambitious and fall short, so starting with easy and productive options makes sense. Beware caterpillars if you try brassicas - my poor sprouts last year!
