May 30th, 2011 by Richard Lord

Troy Waterman has made available ten new allotments of 35 square metres each bordering Rue des Grons in St. Martin.

Each allotment can be rented for £120.00 per year.

Each allotment is one metre apart from the next.  The allotments can be reached along a grass verge.

The land lies in an east to west orientation and receives the summer sun all day long.

Stakes mark out each allotment. Each allotment is separated by a one metre wide strip. The allotments border a grass verge. (click image to expand - ©RLLord)

Troy Waterman wishes the land to be farmed organically so that the land retains its fertility.  If an infestation becomes troublesome then an inorganic treatment can be used but only as a last resort.

Troy Waterman tends his own allotment on site.   He said he deters carrot fly with rows of onions and advises not to cut the tops of harvested carrots where they are grown because the odour will attract the carrot fly.  He uses sodium bicarbonate to treat mildew.

To find out more about the allotments for rent please call Troy on 07781 491461 or email griffins_grotto @ yahoo.co.uk
