Storm damage

Although there weren’t sustained gales during the recent thunderstorms, there were nonetheless significant violently gusty winds.

Unfortunately these appear to have struck the PPA site in places, and plot holders – especially those who consider that they’ve now left their sites covered for the winter – are advised to check that any covers etc. that they might have left are still in place. We did see quite a few which have come adrift.

Feedback sought on manure quality

We did have quite a close look at the recent delivery and found no significant trace of shredded tyre rubber, as was once a recognised complaint, causing some plot holders to avoid using such manure.

We understand that an environmentally-concerned party made strong representations to the Council on this matter, but whether that’s influenced policy at the Riding School we’re unable to confirm.

However, we were only able to examine a relatively small part ot the total, so now that it has nearly all been used, we’d appreciate feedback from gardeners using the manure on this point.

Did anyone find any contaminants such as tyre rubber, and if so, then how much?

Thanks all.
