We’re pleased to announce that we’ve Shanghai’d ourselves a gardening correspondent. Nicki Slater has just acquired her very own allotment in Edinburgh and is counting down the days until she can start digging, hoeing and planting. This is Nicki’s first attempt at allotment gardening so it will be fascinating to see how she gets on and how the allotment progresses over the months.  The best way to garden is to watch other people doing it so we wish Nicki all the best with her new venture  and very much look forward to seeing the fruits of her labours. Look out for the  first of our Tales from Allotment 65 next week.
