Allotment Flowers

The allotment has suddenly come to life with flowers in the last few weeks, along our flower border, intermingled in the beds, and of course on the plants themselves.  We’ve also left some pretty ‘weeds’ and allium which have gone to seed, as they seem to be attracting lots of insects.

We’ve already started planning what we’ll grow next year, and have bought Bluebell and Harebell seeds for a start.

Having never grown flowers from seeds before, it feels like such an achievement to have such lovely bursts of colour throughout the plot.  And not only are we appreciating them, but they are also attracting a fantastic variety of butterflies, bugs and bees.
