1. Mustard green manure seeds are now in stock (08/09/2023) priced at £0.75 per pack.
Each pack contains sufficient seeds to cover 25 square metres. Mustard grows quickly and works by smothering annual weeds. It produces large amounts of organic matter that can be dug into the ground or composted in the spring. It is usually killed by heavy frosts, but in a mild winter it may need to be cut in the spring to prevent it re-seeding.
When to sow? September.
Area covered? Each packet contains sufficient seeds for 25 square metres (30 square yards).
How to sow? Prepare a seedbed and broadcast / sprinkle the seeds thinly and evenly over an area 5 metres by 5 metres (5.4 yards by 5.4 yards). Rake the soil over to work the seed into the soil. Water if the soil is very dry.
If you would like to order packets, please send an email with your required quantity to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Allotmenting can be extremely rewarding. There is nothing like harvesting your very own fresh and organic produce and bringing it to the dining table within hours. The difference between fruit and vegetables that you have grown yourself and those bought from Supermarkets is amazing. It can also be hard work (but cheaper than a gym!) so you may wish to browse the 'Information' links above to see if allotmenting is right for you.
