Hello and Welcome Seacarrot, great name  :wave:

Lovely to have a professional Horticulturalist on board, I'm looking forward to your input  :sunny:
Yayyy another seed saver, there are several HSL members here plus a fair amount of seed savers and swappers.

Thanks for the welcome everybody, I believe I know at least 1 person on this site, but won't mention who In case I instill fear into them. And they think I'm a stalker... I'm not really, I just like seeds.

I studied at Brooksby College, Leicestershire, then moved south to Cannington College, Somerset, for several years before getting employment back in good old Leicestershire, the Horticultural wilderness of the UK.

For your I interest I've been reading up today on what it takes to be a Seed Guardian for the HSL and I think I'm going to go for it...

Hi Sparrow, thanks for the welcome, I'm going to Garden Organics AGM in. Couple of weeks, so will try to have a chat to to the HSL team about being a Guardian.
And thanks again for the achocha seeds, they all germinated.  :toothy10:

New allotment holder and new to the site, so hello from me.

I have a mixed allotment with 1/3 area for hens and the rest greenhouse and raised beds. I'm hoping to grow my skills  :toothy10: and grow my own in every other way, so looking forward to getting many tips from the experts and maybe contribute where I can.

Hello.

I am new in the forum and I would like to introduce myself. My name is Irene, I am 43 years old, I am spanish and live in High Wycombe. I had a plot in Uxbridge as my partner and myself were working there but now my company is moved and my partner is living in Belfast so I moved to a plot closer to me. I have a plot in Green Hill site, in High Wycombe, and it is the first time I am going to manage it alone.

I would like to share with you my love for cultivation and learn from more experienced people.

Welcome to A4A, Irene. Hopefully you'll find this is a friendly forum, and lots of people here are on their own too. Feel free to ask anything you want, and if you've got any pictures of your plot we'd love to see them- we're a nosy lot! I haven't got an allotment at the moment because we are moving soon, so I'm spending more time on my non-edibles!

Hi Irene
Welcome to the forum, many of us garden on our own, or have non gardening partners.
Hope that you enjoy your time on here.
