Love Borage

Borage is a wonderful plant with many talents.  It’s the perfect companion for many crops to ward away unwanted critters and increase pest and disease resistance, and can make strawberries taste even better.  Borage is loved by bees and they are always happy to buzz around the beautiful flowers, which as an extra treat can be eaten in salads or added to your Pimms!

Summer Fruit

The allotment is bursting with Summer fruit at the moment, including our favourites – strawberries, raspberries and cherries!  The strawberries are perfectly in time for Wimbledon and the cherries are almost coming to an end this year, too soon as always…

A rainbow of raspberries; this year we’ve added some golden and pale red/pink raspberries to our collection, with beautiful and delicious results!
