1.2 What does ‘cultivation’ mean?

Improving the soil by digging, composting and/or mulching and subsequently planting, sowing and growing produce, while striving to keep down the weeds. When the site is inspected, there must be evidence of planting and growing by you.

Please note that you will not achieve the minimum standard of cultivation if you do not work regularly on your plot.

The good news is, the more work you put in to start with, the easier it will get over the years! Remember, dig in compost, manure and leaf mould often.
