This month everything is queuing up to be fed – including us, says Graham Strong in his penultimate article about starting an allotment from scratch

Add plenty of late flowering daisies like these to maintain a source of food for beneficial insects and put a spring in your step!

Very little gets wasted in the Strong household and I seem to have developed a reputation as a bit of a hoarder, so much so that it’s not unknown for vans to stop off at our house on the way to the tip. My landscape pal, Karl, has dropped off some real gems in the past, like weathered oak posts and rails, dismantled sheds and tools I have yet to identify. All the 5cm (2in) thick, grey 60x60cm (2x2ft) slabs we have used to make paths on the plot have come from jobs where concrete has been replaced by trendy Indian sandstone. It might be a landscaper you need to contact if you are looking for some too.
