Are you a Grow-Your-Own Guru?

Fancy Being on TV?

Do you have an abundant allotment or a bountiful back garden?

The BBC is looking for participants for The Big Allotment Challenge to transform a plot of earth into a beautiful patch of edible lovliness.

Sadly Little Miss Agratech below is too little to enter, as all entrants must be 18 or over.

Get Planting Garlic and Shallots Now

garden garlicNow is the perfect time to get planting if you want to harvest your own Garlic and Shallots this summer.

Planting now will ensure that your plants get a good few weeks of cool temperatures needed to get the above ground growing underway.

We love locally based Robinsons website http://mammothonion.co.uk/ and plenty of new varieties and a very funky website at the Garlic Specialists http://www.thegarlicfarm.co.uk
