    Well folks I had no choice but to be patient. I did a Freedom of information request that showed there were a hundred people above me. Some allotmonts, provided by my local council, were by 'invitation only' and not available to everyone. I made more FOI requests and within a few months was offered a site. Propably a coincidence.

    Incidently, I'm in Merseyside.

    Hi DTC and welcome from me too
    To put your location into your profile so that it appears where mine says - Here and there in Sunny South Wales -, go to Settings near the top of the page, then My Profile, scroll down and you'll find a box to enter your location. It does help us to know roughly where you live because of weather conditions etc.

    Congratulations! I know how you feel, at first its all a bit daunting but take your time. First thing to do is to get yerself a small gas cooker, a kettle and somewhere to sit so that after digging/forking a couple of rows you can take a well earned break before doing another two. Works for me.

    Talk to the other people near your new plot, try and find out what they have had sucess with and what does not do well. Sit down and mastermind a plan. Start small and work up, be ready to change things if they dont work as you planned.
