I just love everthing about local Flower & Vegetable Shows
talking to other growers leaning how to get better crops.
But I am afraid that the modern allotment holders do not take to them very much which is so sad as you can learn an awful lot from visiting these shows
I have heard it said that its not for them its for flat cap & whippet brigade which in my humble opinion is unfair
if it wasn't for the flat cap brigade who in the 70's 80's & 90's kept the allotments going when they weren't fashionable and stopped them building houses on them were would they Be
It is I believe that because of this misguide attitude We have lost our local show (Lark Lane) after 25 years
This is despite the fact that vast majiorty of allotments in the south Liverpool area were I live are full and hundreds of people on the waiting lists
This also goes for the rest of Liverpool as well as plots around the city are full and have waiting list
Sorry about this
but I feel I had to get this across that you must Please support you local Show
or it will go to the wall
because you will miss it when it has gone belive me it is not fun.
Best Wishes & Kind Regards
