A WARM WELCOME TO EVERYONE AS SPRING 2018 IS NOW UPON US!!

 IT HAS BEEN A VERY LONG, COLD AND HARD WINTER WITH ONLY A HANDFUL OF DECENT DAYS TO MAKE A START ON THIS SEASON’S PREPARATIONS, HENCE MY DELAY IN SENDING OUT ANY UPDATES TO YOU ALL.  THE DAYS ARE GETTING LONGER, THE NIGHTS ARE SHORTER AND THE ANTICIPATION OF THE “CLOCK SPRINGING FORWARD” ON THE 24/ 25th MARCH IS ENCOURAGING.  HOWEVER, I DO ANTICIPATE SOME COLD WEATHER AND FROSTS HANGING AROUND FOR A WHILE SO PLEASE TAKE CARE TO PROTECT ANY OF YOUR SEEDLINGS AND PLANTS FROM OUR VERY CHANGEABLE CLIMATE!!

 THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASED INTEREST THIS YEAR FOR PLACES IN THE POLY TUNNEL BY STUDENTS/  ALLOTMENT HOLDERS AND I HOPE I HAVE REPLIED TO YOU ALL PERSONALLY BY NOW?? I AM DOING MY BEST TO ACCOMMODATE EVERYONE’S NEEDS AND WISHES SO PLEASE BEAR WITH ME, I AM WILLING TO ANSWERS ANY QUERIES YOU MAY HAVE.  I WOULD LIKE AT THIS STAGE TO WELCOME ALL NEW STARTERS AND OLD HANDS TO THIS GREAT FACILITY PROVIDED BY R.G.U. AND WISH YOU ALL EVERY SUCCESS IN 2018.

JUST TO RECAP ON SOME POINTERS:

  • PLEASE NAME YOUR TABLE/WORK AREA IN ACCORDANCE WITH RGU ASSOCIATION/PLOT NO AND ENSURE IT IS KEPT IN A TIDY CONDITION THROUGHOUT THE SEASON.
  • DURING THE HEIGHT OF THE SUMMER PLEASE OPEN THE POLYTUNNEL DOOR/S TO MAINTAIN AIRFLOW AND MAINTAIN AN AMBIENT TEMPERATURE, IN THE EVENING PLEASE CHECK AGAIN THAT DOOR/S ARE CLOSED. (WHOEVER IS ON SITE)
  • PLEASE ENSURE THAT ANY DISEASED PLANTS/SEEDLINGS ARE REMOVED ASAP TO AVOID SPREAD AND CONTAMINATION TO OTHER USERS PLANTS.
  • AT THE END OF THE SEASON IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO REMOVE ALL YOUR OWN DEAD PLANTS FROM THE POLYTUNNEL AND TIDY UP THE AREA THAT YOU HAVE USED SO THAT IT CAN GET A DEEP CLEAN BEFORE WINTER. THIS HELPS AGAINST THE SPREAD OF DISEASE AND FUNGAL INFECTION.
  • WE ARE ALL HERE TO HELP EACH OTHER SO IF YOU ARE GOING ON HOLIDAY/AWAY WITH WORK, LET SOMEONE KNOW AND THEY CAN ENSURE YOUR PLANTS ARE WATERED/TENDED ON A SHORT-TERM BASIS ONLY.
