About this episode's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Annabelle from Life at No. 27

#341: How to Start and Maintain a Garden Allotment (Annabelle Life at No. 27) Annabelle is a successful freelance writer, radio personality, blogger and vlogger using her fresh approach to promote the joys of gardening and Grow Your Own.

Inspiring more people, particularly the younger generation, to put down their phones and pick up a spade. Annabelle has become a regular face at events throughout the gardening calendar and hosts a monthly radio show where she shares her allotment journey, the latest in the gardening industry and top tasks each month.

Through her passion and energetic enthusiasm, she aims to change the way allotments and growing your own are viewed and bring a stroke of ‘highlight and contour’ to the gardening world.

I am a 20-something year old, loving every step of my journey learning to grow fresh vegetables and cut flowers at No.27.

For years I had dreamed of having my own haven of fresh air and tranquillity to grow my own produce. Roll on April 2015, I moved to the Oxfordshire countryside, put myself on the council allotment waiting list and started growing my own fruit and vegetables in pots and containers at home.

After waiting for the right plot, the email arrived and No.27 was mine. At roughly 7.5m x 20m, my patch of paradise is certainly big enough for just me.

With minimal experience, a waist high overgrown plot full of perennial weeds but bucket loads of enthusiasm and determination, I was excited but certainly apprehensive of the journey ahead.

‘Life at No.27’ is my highly enthusiastic and ever learning journey.
