Hi Claire. Congratulations on your book. It is such a buzz to see it in print. Well done! Cheers Sarah : o )
Every time I get new pictures through, it still seems a little unreal. I can’t wait to get my first completed copy.
Wow! Congratulations! I just ordered my copy. How exciting!
Well that’s 2 sold so far…as far as I know. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Claire, Karen Murphy at Garden News magazine here, i wondered if you might like to give our readers a few little tips for our back page, where we give a few pointers or points of view? We’d plug your lovely blog (and/or books?) at the end, and can we have a picture of you, or use this one on the website? Many thanks, the topic is “What do you want to get out of next year’s gardening, and what are you going to try, if anything new?”
Hopefully this might be alright, and thanks!
Hi Karen, Lovely to hear from you, if you could email me at email@example.com and then I can email you a picture of me. Ok so here goes with your question. Next year I would like to grow a wonderful array of different shapes and colours of Tomatoes. I’ve already got my packets from Pennard Plants https://www.pennardplants.com/ The regular tomatoes grow perfectly well, but just to get a wonderful variety on a plate would be fantastic. Also the heaviest pumpkin I’ve ever grown was 48lb, I want to grow one heavier next year, and finally I’m looking forward to harvesting my very first Asparagus. As for new seeds next year I’m hoping to grow Lemon grass. I hope that’s ok, anything else email me directly on my email address. Lottie and Dottie Sow Pumpkins is out May 2016! Thanks, Claire
Well done Claire on your allotment. My husband and I started last year, it has changed our life in a good way. You do wonderful work. We would definitely learn from your experience.
I’m so glad to hear you’re having fun on your allotment. What was your big success last season?
