Latest News

New Allotment Committee

We have a new committee. Please email us with any queries or issues you have. Email: turveyallotmentsassociation@gmail.com.

January 2017
  • ALLOTMENT RENEWALS 2017 See the Fingal Co Co Website for Information.

  • As the Committee is now fully established, Fingal County Council will now not renew any licence for the 2017 season unless the fee due is paid in FULL. There will not be an option to pay the plot renewal fee but not the association fee. This policy will be strictly adhered to.

Fruit, Vegetables and Herbs

  • When the soil dries enough in the coming weeks, sow early vegetables outdoors, such as garlic, shallots, early peas, broad beans and onions.
  • Tidy up old rhubarb crowns and remove weeds. Lift rhubarb for forcing in doors if you like birhg red sticks.
  • Early potato varieties can be placed in a bright place indoors, or greenhouse, to sprout which aids earlier cropping.
  • Sow seeds of early varieties of cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, lettuce and onions in a tunnel or glasshouse for early crops.
  • New fruit trees should be planted as soon as possible.
  • Pruning of apple and pear trees and blackcurrant bushes should be completed within a couple of weeks

Greenhouse and House Plants

  • To re-start strong growth, most greenhouse plants in pots will benefit from an increase in watering and also begin feeding, introducing a little plant food when watering.
  • Sow seeds of tomatoes for greenhouse growing, also peppers and chillies.
  • Check for signs of greenflies and other pests on greenhouse plants and house plants, and control them if necessary. There are few or no natural predators in the greenhouse and pests often have a free run.
  • See www.garden.ie for more information.
