Video guides

 

The National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners (NSALG), to which all our member are members of, have been participating in a new TV channel called Horticultural TV which specialises on giving advise on allotment gardening. The main page of the show is at the following address Main Horticultural TV page. You have to subscribe to it but it offers a lot of helpful hits and tips.

Also the Royal Horticultural Society offers extensive advice. Of particularly interest is the Veg A to Z. Take a look. There are lots of helpful videos on the site particularly for things like pruning.
