The Growing Together gardening magazine podcast.

Early September at the allotment and there’s a lot going on.  Harvesting, clearing and tidying plots, collecting seeds… and partaking in giant vegetable competitions.

How do you protect your plot over winter? Are you going to create a dead hedge? Have you thought about what your Spring garden will look like?  And what on earth is pumpkin rowing?

Claire and Steve discuss all the above and more in the latest episode.  

They’re also looking forward to Hay Day in the orchard and another flower show for Steve to showcase this year’s produce at.

Joining them is Jan Knowlson from the South Downs National Park with an update on the ReNature initiative and Peter from Petersfield’s Men’s Shed has advice on how to make a wooden planter. 

Growing Together is sponsored by Alitex Glasshouses, modern Victorian glasshouses, based in South Harting.
