How to Rebuild Your Allotment in Bristol with Little Gardening Experience

Hi everyone,

I recently acquired an allotment plot in Bristol, England, but I have little experience in gardening. I'm excited about the opportunity to grow my own fruits and vegetables, but I'm not sure where to start. I would appreciate any advice or tips on how to rebuild my allotment plot.

Here a pic of the allotment.

    Start with a list of what you like to eat, and what you want to grow. Look at your site, see where the sun rises and sets, this will determine the positions of certain crops. Start by clearing a section,  don't try to tackle it all at once, little and often is the way.  Over many years I've seen too many people start with all guns blazing to then get injured or put off by the amount of work.  There is loads on line and in many books. , the RHS,  the national Allotment Society.  Too much to list in one reply. There is an Allotment thread on here,  we will try to answer specific questions.
