As we enter the harvest season, we hope you are enjoying the fruits of your allotment toils!

Read on for the winners of our no dig competition, to catch up with Rod Weston's composting webinar and for details of our next event at RHS Malvern.


We are delighted to announce the winners of our no dig competition -judged by no dig expert, Charles Dowding and sponsored by Chris Knott Insurance. Photos of the winning allotments have been published on our Facebook and Instagram pages and will be published in our next membership magazine.

We were astounded by the quality of submissions - a huge thank you to all 79 entries. The winners were:

Gold - Emily Crosbie from Leeds - an amazing, joyful transformation in only a year, for a first-time allotment holder.

Silver - Matt Lominski from Yeovil - a fabulous plot and heartwarming story of how the no dig approach has helped a night shift emergency worker.

Bronze - Jade Woodhouse from Brighton - a highly successful no dig transformation and a plot that has inspired many others!

Charles has also commended the following no dig allotmenteers:

Scott and Mandy McKenzie, Jonny & Carly Kimber, Russell Attwood, Karen and Paul Thorpe, Lauren Wellburn, Matthew Coombes, Glenda Spence, Ron Heath, Weronica Crossan, Emma Fletcher, Amanda White, Matt Beaumont, Alison Andrew and Janet Granger.
