At Dalefoot we love getting photos and emails from customers about their plants and gardens and what better week to showcase them than National Allotments Week (13 to 19 August). This event, organised by the National Allotment Society, sees allotment sites across the UK open their gates to the public to share their joy in gardening. For a full list of sites taking part click here.

Dalefoot customer George sent us this photo of his grand-daughter with a giant cucumber grown using our Wool Compost for Vegetables & Salads. “I have never grown anything quite like this in the past. I can only put it down to using your compost,” he said.

And we were most impressed with the colourful photos sent in by customer David who said: “I am sending you a few pictures of my containers this year, all are planted up with your compost and as you can judge they are absolutely magnificent. I have never before had such a success with manufactured composts. I did try out a few bags last year for the first time having met you at Malvern. It was a success last year but this year the results are outstanding. I ordered enough for a friend and she also is delighted with the results. We will be ordering again next year.”
