    Default Howdy

    Afternoon good grapes, I've been avidly reading the forum for a few months since deciding to take on an allotment in Coventry. Having signed on the dotted line at the weekend I'm now the proud holder of a patch of weeds with a roofless DIY shed and greenhouse missing a few panes of glass.

    Unfortunately it looks like the weather is set to turn again this weekend which may make it difficult to get any real progress on the heavy clay soil in these parts but I'm looking forward to the challenge and getting the kids involved once the plot is free of any hazards.

    Hi Mr Mauy! Welcome to the forum - the friendliest grapes on the planet

    I have clay in my garden at home. I've given up on digging it now, and follow Charles Dowding's advice to the letter with his no-dig!
