No allotment. About one third acre including house. Keeps the mind off the wimin and the beer - sometimes anyway.
Spring a while away yet.

Good luck.

If you're happy with the replies you've had, fine! But, if you're still looking, I have to confess I get all my seeds from Dobies in the UK on line.

They gave a 10% discount over the Christmas period, sent what they had in stock and are sending two items later. I get quite good crops from their Sturon (white) and Hyred F1 (red) but I don't suppose they're the only good ones.
