  1. I had a similar situation many years ago with my garden. I tilled in many bags of Sphagnum peat moss.
    It’s a slow process but it worked. Needs repeating (less amounts) each year. Eventually it will be rich and loamy. Of course, there is a downside; I presume you don’t own but rent the allotment. You can’t take it with you if you leave.

    1. I’ve been working it for 30 years, not that you’d know. The last few years it has been neglected due to various family circumstances. Determined to get on top of it this year.

  2. Sounds like the first thing to do is to start adding plenty of material to the soil.
    Everything from manure to hay and straw plus some bark chippings e.g. anything that will get air into the soil if you do this over the next few years you will be able to completely transform your soil.
    It’s also good to add leaf mould.
