New allotment!

Just got my new lottie! :D

Though havent been to see it yet and its only a half plot, I'm really keen to get going. Come on Spring!

First off will be to move a load of raspberrys from the garden to the plot. Do I just dig up the rhizomes and transplant?

    Basically, yes. After they are established you will have to gauge whether they are summer or autumn fruiting and prune accordingly.

    The first harvest may be a bit sparse.
