Gardeners’ Autumn Question Time: CANCELLED

Unfortunately we haven’t had sufficient interest in this event and are therefore cancelling it. Apologies to those who did express an interest. We may try again in spring.

 

Our next Gardeners’ Question Time event will be on Sunday 11th September at 2pm, in the community hut at Linlithgow Allotments. All welcome. A panel of experienced and friendly allotmenteers will be ready to take your questions no matter how small e.g.:

  • What can I plant or sow now?
  • How to get the most from manure?
  • What should I be doing at my plot or in my garden over the winter?

Email to linlithgowallotments@yahoo.co.uk by 4th September if you would like to come along. No charge but tea/coffee and homebaking will be available for donations to our funds.
