Allotment plot holder Nick Giannissis found Mervyn’s feature about his ‘no-dig’ plot here on the RAA website. With google he discovered more, was converted to no-dig himself, and he has written his own feature on the subject, published here for us to enjoy.
Nick explains: ‘I hope that it generates interest from other plot holders. No-dig isn’t a new idea – I think it can be traced back at least seventy years, maybe more. It has recently been adopted in several high profile locations; RHS Wisley in Surrey, Kew Gardens’ kitchen garden and many National Trust sites, including Sissinghurst.’ Please click here to read Nick’s full news feature which very much links to Mervyn’s no-dig story of April 2016. In it Nick shares photos he took last season showing his plot’s progress, also links to other sources of information he discovered around the web and some useful youtube videos.
Do you have an interesting story to tell? Would you like to explain what you grow, how you use your plot, what grows best in the London clay and climate, to share your experiences with your allotment neighbours and the wider web world? If you do please contact the RAA website team, we are keen to publish more feature stories from plot holders.
