Plant Some Fruit
So in previous blogs, we have talked about how to plan for next year on the Allotment. One thing that I like to think about is Fruit! It is delicious, it crops well, you usually get an abundance and it is good for the bees. It’s time to plant fruit this winter!
Each year on my plot I expand my fruit crops. Winter is the time to do this and you may just get some next year depending on the plant.

You can be taking runners off your strawberry plants. You have always got more room for strawberries. These can be grown in the ground, in pots and on walls.
These will have sent roots out in the last year creating extra plants. You can now pull them up and put them where you want them.
You can now dig these up while they are dormant and chop them into extra plants.
Now is the time to plant them so they can get enough water to take root.
