‘Sean’s Allotment Garden’ – video series on UK’s Horticulture Channel

My allotment garden is based in Crystal Palace, London, UK.

Sean James Cameron grows on an allotment in London, a community based garden site. Sean first became engaged with gardening when he was a teenager by his cousin, Betty. He helped maintain the family garden and changed it from a little patch of flowers into a productive garden of vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. “I love scent in the garden. Even though allotments are for food growing we can still keep a patch for flowers and especially scented ones.”

From October 7, 2012, on Sean’s allotment:

Fun packed day on the allotment today. Started around 11am with cleaning the greenhouse of the dead tomato plant, peppers and melons. Removed the greenhouse shading paint from the glass and carried on with some weeding.

After lunch a gaggle of plot holders gathered on my neighbours plot for their pumpkin harvest. I made a video which I will post tomorrow so you can see how BIG they turned out. I opened my last bottle of elderflower champagne which I made last year. It went down a storm and didn’t last long. Will definately be making some more next year. Hiccup!

Headed home around 6pm as the light started to fade. Another enjoyable day on the allotments.
