I remember Dig in Deep remarking how many years he had taken to get his allotment soil up to a really good standard as he stood and contemplated the work required on the soil in his new garden.

I have called to mind his comments many times as I deal with the second allotment project.

The allotment holders on each side of me have been saying similar things all year.

Have a Read about Terra Preta on Wikipedia - Experts still do not fully understand what happens.
Seems that  if you mix 10% by volume charcoal (primed with urea) with  the soil you get permanent benefits !
