COCKERMOUTH ALLOTMENT & GARDEN ASSOCIATION


The New Year started with a mixture of weather. Storm Eleanor brought gale force winds and rain which was followed by a cold spell, freezing the ground. This weather tests the resilience of fences, greenhouses and huts but also plants, particularly those which required autumn pruning to avoid strong winds rocking or breaking the root balls. Buddleia and roses are often affected by wind and it is not too late to reduce the top growth to prevent any further or future damage as we are sure to have further storms.


Water butts are better left empty over the winter to avoid freezing with the possibility of ice splitting the container. The tap can then be shut early March to refill with water for the summer.

If heavy snow is forecast, shrubs and conifers should be tied up to prevent the weight of snow from breaking branches or opening up the crown and bending branches as the damage caused destroys the shape and form which is not easily rectified.


Continue to sow seeds of flowers and vegetables and perhaps some seedlings are now well through and ready for potting on. The seedlings need to be big enough to handle but not have a mass of root which makes them difficult to separate.


Leave the growing seedlings tray immersed in water for a few minutes and allow it to drain. Read the seed packet instructions to see if it recommends potting on into seed trays (usually for half hardy annuals and some green salad crops) or into pots (usually vegetables and perennial flowers). Fill trays or pots with good quality compost and lightly firm. Water well and leave to drain. Lift the seedlings with a plant label, separate and plant in the trays at the recommended spacing or into individual pots. Lightly firm the compost around the plants. Care should be taken to avoid damage to the leaves and roots. The newly-potted seedlings should be placed in a light airy position away from full sun for a few days to allow them to recover from transplanting.


The January meeting will be our Annual General Meeting and also the time for subscriptions to be paid. Membership is £5.00 per annum per household. Our next meeting will be on 30th January, The Swan Inn on Kirkgate at 7.15pm for 7.30pm.
