A Straw in the Wind

DSC_2040Gill Earle from Plot 64 has come by a large bale of straw and has kindly offered to share it with other plotters. Gill is experimenting with a no dig method of growing tatties in straw and of course straw is a proven way protecting strawberries from contact with the soil, rot and slugs and other crops from late or early frosts.  If you can use some on your own allotment please see Gill to arrange uplift.


  1. I’m looking for straw. Do you happen to know Gill sourced her straw from?

    • Hello Sonya, I believe the straw came from the same place we get our manure. The telephone number is on the site noticeboard. I hope this helps. Norman

  2. Thank you, Norman
