My name is Bridgette Saunders. Through these bulletins I hope I can both inspire and encourage you to manage your allotment in a way that is productive, pleasurable and fun! I also hope to explain some of the theory behind the principles of growing flowers, fruit and vegetables to help make more sense of how to make your allotment a success. Best wishes, Bridgette
