July 2014 update
Discover the progress made on the allotment during July 2014
Sandra Eder, Southlands Road Allotment and Gardens Association
Its all quiet on the WW1 allotment front. July has been spent digging over the grassed area and applying manure supplied by Veolia, but as time is precious many allotment holders are working their own plots and bringing in the harvest.
Waitrose Community Matters Scheme
Southlands Road Allotment Association applied to Waitrose Community Matters Scheme and are fortunate that we will have a token box during the month of August, so, if you shop in Waitrose, Masons Hill Bromley we would really appreciate your support for our project which is to buy a bee hive for our WW1 plot.
Our thanks to: Waitrose Supermarket, Masons Hill, Bromley
An update on seed trays
In our June update we were making seed trays from re-cycled wooden pallets, the photos show the pieces cut to size and the completed item, we will be having a working party in August when we will make several of these boxes.
A tub of Flanders poppies were planted and they have just flowered, we will save the seeds and sow them next year
