All tment Glutton
Welcome to my blog.
The Allotment Glutton is where I share allotment anecdotes, potting shed politics, plot experiments, harvests & seasonal Plot2Plate recipes for maximum exploitation of fruit and veg gluts.
My garden and allotment plots are based in St Leonards on Sea, near Hastings, East Sussex.
My blog updates are also on Twitter and Facebook. Sign up on the contact page to receive a regular newsletter.
My recipe index will grow as produce is harvested from my plot, so check back regularly.

Planting Summer Cut Flowers
By Angie, Feb 27 2013 03:00PM
I have a cut flower border at the front of plot 39, and am planning to incorporate one on the new plot - plot 37. I find this a great way of encouraging pollinators onto the plot as well as giving a good look to the plot. I then dot companion plants through the plot between vegetable beds to further encourage ladybirds, lacewings and bees to my vegetable plants.
I have therefore planted various perennials - dahlias, gladioli and paeonies into the bed today, to accompany the poppies, gladioli, lillies and alliums that already grow in these beds.
Here are some flowers I cut from last year's cut flower border.
