Terry Walton: Allotment Tips from the Jeremy Vine Allotment
Terry Walton can regularly be heard on Jeremy Vine’s BBC Radio 2 show providing gardening tips to listeners.
Since the age of four, when Terry’s dad first took him to his allotment, he’s had a ‘growing’ desire to garden. Terry took his first allotment aged 11, and has been on the same allotment site for over 50 years.
Terry combined a busy life in industry, a happy family life with his wife Anthea and two sons with (at one stage) keeping ten allotment plots on the go. He’s a born again organic gardener having seen the error of his ways in the late 1960s and dispensed with using chemicals, now growing all his produce using all-natural means of nourishing them.
Terry retired in 2001 and by some very fortunate means started broadcasting from his allotments on the, then new, Jeremy Vine show.
