The Radio 2 Allotment Man


On Monday 2nd October we were invited to visit Terry Walton’s allotment in Trealw in the heart of the Rhondda. Terry retired in 2001 and by some fortunate means started broadcasting from his allotments on the, then new, Jeremy Vine show on Radio 2.


Terry took his first allotment plot at eleven years old and over fifty years later he still has one plot on the same allotment. He is known to most as the ‘born again’ organic gardener because of his strategic way of growing all his produce using natural means of nourishing them.

Terry takes great pleasure in sharing his plot and growing experiences with fellow growers. Here we are stood outside the infamous Albie’s café
