    Hello to all
    I am new to this forum but not to gardening. Have been a home gardener for many years and this is my 3rd year on the allotment. I love producing things to eat but donít necessarily like everything I produce! I live not far from the Mendips so quite a mild climate.
    This year my challenge to self is to grow sweetcorn and chillies. Last year swede but wonít bother again as no discernible difference from s/markets and takes up too much space.
    No greenhouse just a plastic covered shelving unit, raised bed, cold frame and numerous window sills.
    Looking forward to participating and enjoying the benefits of this online community with its great shared knowledge.

    Hello SSvy and welcome!
    Tell me, please, do you grow Sweet Savory as I don't have much luck with it.

    Hello and welcome to the vine SSvy
    Ive also given up on swede and celery I didn't get very good results with either of them. It just gives me more space for things I like to grow such as beans, peas courgettes.
