  • Cultivation Policy

    Cultivation Policy

    "Cultivation” and, more importantly “non-cultivation”, can mean different things to different people and can be interpreted in various ways. If you look around the site, you will find that there are almost as many different styles of cultivation as there are plots. It is certainly not necessary to maintain strictly regimented rows of vegetables.

    HPAA Rules

    Our rules are simple and easy to understand, please read them carefully and abide by them

 

Asparagus Varieties to try

  • Connovers Colossal Asparagus
    • A variety that has stood the test of time, thick stalks of mid-green with a superb flavour. Beds will produce good crops for 15-20 years once established.
  • Gijnlim Asparagus
    • These one year old plants are quick to establish. Beds should be prepared well in advance so the roots can be planted as soon as possible after receipt. Your first crop should be the following season.
  • Jacmar Purple Asparagus
    • Second to none for sweetness and tenderness. Try it cold in a healthy salad. It has a very low fibre content which means that almost the entire spear is free of the tough fibre normally found on the bottom of the green varieties.
  • Jersey Knight F1 Asparagus
    • All male hybrid giving improved production of spears up to 2cm (1") thick.

The Growing Season

The growing season

The Growing Season varies in different parts of the United Kingdom, but in Hatfield Peverel we are blessed with a milder climate and enjoy a longer season than many parts of the country.

In this section of the web site I have tried to separate the season out into monthly sections to help and guide you through the most popular tasks and crops regularly grown on the allotment site, but if you would like a feature made of a particular vegetable or task, please get in touch and I will do my best to add it to the web site for you.
