My Other Blogs and Webby Stuff

Here are the rest of the places where I have a presence on the interweb...

Wherever possible I've kept the same Avatar aka Profile Picture aka Favicon across the web, so you know it's me :)


  • Sign of the Times - my regular photojournal. Not many words, but plenty of pictures
  • VP's Open Garden - raised over £1,000 for WaterAid in 2008. Still available for you to wander around my garden and allotment
  • Meet at Malvern - a record of bloggers get togethers at Malvern spring and autumn shows in 2010 and 2011. It also gets updated when I visit the show and has links to other bloggers' posts for those times. It can also be used as a resource for visitors in general or for anyone wanting to arrange a meet up in future. 
  • Box of Delight - an archive of reminisces and things to make me smile, with the odd bit of creative writing thrown in for good measure. Not updated very often


  • My chatty twitterid is @Malvernmeet (my first foray into Twitter to get our first bloggers get together as well known as possible)
  • My blog twitterid is @VegPlotting

I also curate several 'Twitter Newspapers' which is a quick way to read the content (i.e. links) tweeted by the people or organisations I follow using the application. For a general guide to how Twitter Newspapers work, read The Plotting Daily is Out


Try Veg Plotting's Facebook and Instagram pages. These often have additional original content to what appears on this blog e.g. Blooms Day extra.

My YouTube Channel - if you want to see what lawnmower racing looks like, snowing in my garden, or the Christmas lights glowing; bees amongst almond blossom on our estate, or our scary trip across the Pontcysylte Viaduct etc., then this is the place for you

My Amazon Reviews - my book reviews and product testing on Veg Plotting are usually transferred across and adapted for Amazon. There's also lots of extra reviews which aren't included on this blog

Online Garden Clubs and Blog Lists

Just like the in real world there are plenty of gardening 'clubs' and forums found online. They're great for finding like minded people plus lots hints and tips about all things horticultural. There's also a few places where you can find other gardening blogs like (and unlike) this one from around the world.

Here's a small selection. If you have a favourite not listed here, tell me about it in the Comments below.

Gardening Clubs and Forums
  • Allotments 4 All (A4A) - a great forum for all things fruit and veg - mainly UK
  • Folia - a social personal garden organiser with a worldwide membership
  • Garden Network - a forum for both horticulture professionals and amateurs - mainly UK
  • GrowVeg - another GYO forum, not quite as popular as A4A
  • My Garden - the RHS forum
  • Shoot - personal garden organiser, plant database and online community - mainly UK
  • UK Veg Gardeners - great food growing community, but I'm biased as I'm a founding member!
Blog Lists

Events Diary: Your Monthly Guide to What's On

Press Cuttings

In 2009 I was a finalist in the Garden Blog of the Year category at the Garden Media Guild's (GMG) annual awards. James Alexander-Sinclair won again, but I was pleased to hear my name read out at the awards lunch and for James to recommend this blog during his acceptance speech :)

In 2011 I was a finalist in the Horticultural Channel's inaugural awards. It's rather good because nominations and votes come from the public. I'm also proud to be a contributor to the eventual winner, The Guardian Gardening blog :)

In 2012, Veg Plotting was again a finalist in the GMG's Garden Blog of the Year. Runner-up to the mighty Guardian Gardening Blog is fine by me.

In 2013, Veg Plotting had its third finalist spot, making it the most successful blog not to have achieved the winner's prize.

Acclaim for Veg Plotting...

BBC Countryfile magazine said:
The best blogs are based around a central passion but allow the author to digress wildly, letting their personalities flood through. Veg Plotting is such a blog...

...VP takes in such varied subjects as making elderflower cordial and the use of plastic flowers in railway station hanging baskets. Eclectic and always entertaining.

Blog of the Month, August 2009

And here's what BBC Gardeners' World magazine had to say:
...entertaining and educational glimpses into a normal garden and allotment in Chippenham. Lots of hints and surprises.

January 2009

From Walton's Best Gardening or Shed Blog nomination:

Based in Wiltshire, this blog offers a quirky view of the world of gardening and allotments, as well as an irreverant take on the world around us!
November 2010
Grow Your Own magazine's Growing help feature said:
Follow the musings of this Wiltshire-based gardener as she blogs about life, allotments and producing crops on limestone-clay soil. If you're planning to visit other people's plots in 2011 her reviews and stunning photography will encourage you out of the potting shed and into the car.

Expect to be inspired by pictures of RHS Wisley, Dyrham Park and many other fantastic fruit-and-veg growing spots. The blogger opened her own garden to the public in 2008.

February 2011 (NB March's edition) and again in February 2012:

Bloggers come and bloggers go, but I'm happy to say that Wiltshire based allotment holder Michelle Chapman is a constant source of inspiration on the ever-evolving cyber gardening scene. Her site (which gives her other moniker, VP) is a great place to go for honest, thorough product reviews, musings on allotment life, seasonal recipes and thoughtful posts on everything from grafted tomatoes to potato blight. Catch up with VP on Twitter, too @malvernmeet.
Daily Mail:
Blogs I particularly enjoy are Veg Plotting, and James Alexander-Sinclair’s award winning one at

A Quick Blog Tour

Thanks for visiting Veg Plotting and welcome :)

This post is a quick tour of my blog to highlight some of its key features and I hope it'll help you to quickly feel at home.

You'll see to the right there's some summary Pages to help you get started which includes a bit about me plus an introduction to my garden and allotment plot. Just click on the Home Page link to bring you back to my blog. Clicking on the Veg Plotting in the box at the top of the screen does the same thing. You can do this wherever you've got yourself within the blog to get you back to where you started.

Staying on the right and below the Pages there's a selection of some of my Popular Posts to give you an idea of the wide range of topics I write about. You'll also see a little further down I've put a Translate button just in case you feel more comfortable reading this in another language.

If you wish to home in on a particular subject, there's a Search box you can use at the top left of the page. This is just like Googling, except the search and results are restricted to what's here on my blog. Staying on the left hand side, but further down, you'll also find a Labels section, which shows the broad topics I write about and the number of articles written for each of them. Using Search or Labels will present you with a series of appropriate articles I've written in reverse date order and you can simply page through them as you like.

I've been lucky to meet a number of people both virtually and for real during my time blogging. If they also have a blog, then you'll find a Link to them in my right sidebar. There's also useful links and others designed to tell you more about where I live etc. I also have a few pictures dotted around, these are worth hovering over to see whether there's a link to another of my blog posts.

On the left I've chosen to show you the Weather where I live as this is important to me as a gardener and perhaps you'd like to compare it with where you are at the moment. Clicking on this for more information will take you out of my blog, so you'll need to use your back button to get back to me.

I do hope you'll enjoy your visit and would like to come back sometime. With this in mind I've provided a number of options on the left hand sidebar to make it easier for you to not miss a thing. If you have a Google account set up, then the Follow facility is for you. Or if you already read blogs using another reader such as Bloglines, then you might like to Subscribe to my RSS feed. Finally, there's an Email subscription option which will pop my latest article into your inbox whenever I publish something.

Finally, do dive in, enjoy and if you have any questions or anything to say about my blog in general or on a specific post, then we can start a conversation in the Comments either via the link below or via the one below the particular post you're looking at.

Booky Wooks

I don't have a mega publishing deal... yet - contact me if you'd like to offer me one ;)

In the meantime I've had the opportunity to do a little light publishing and reviewing as follows...

First forays into publishing

I learnt a lot by about writing and the process of publishing with my contribution of a chapter to award-winning author Niki Jabbour's Ground Breaking Food Gardens

I produced a plan for producing year-round salads in the tiniest of spaces. You can read about how it all happened here.

I got quite emotional when I found the book on display in a tool shop in Toronto at the start of  2015's Garden Bloggers Fling. It was the first time I'd seen it in a shop, rather than my own copy.

My first foray into publishing was gathering up my posts about Chippenham into a Blurb book, called ABC of Chippenham.

Blurb is just one of the mind boggling number of self-publishing options available. This project was to satisfy my own curiosity about how self-publishing works and was an enjoyable exercise.

I wrote a blog post about it here.

In 2013 I was given the opportunity to convert a company blog I look after into a book. It celebrated their staff raising over a quarter of a million pounds for charity in just three years.

So Abseil to Zumba was born, which gives a flavour of the range of activities the staff undertook in order to raise their cash.

The book had a tiny print run, but unlike most book deals I was paid by hour to produce it.

And finally, I converted Veg Plotting into a Kindle book, just to find out the process involved. I don't expect anyone to buy it, when they can read everything here for free.

2016 Update

A couple of sparkly new additions for 2016...

Work in progress on the Sign of the Times book
In August I trialed Saal Digital's blog to book offering and selected over 400 photos to showcase from my Sign of the Times blog. 

Overall quality was good, but it didn't have the flexibility that Blurb offers.

I reviewed the process and result here.

Orchard Odyssey book cover
I proof-read and made suggestions to Naomi Slade's Orchard Odyssey, published in September 2016. 

It's interesting to see how the plain Word documents I reviewed chapter by chapter were transformed into the luscious result. 

In her Acknowledgements at the front of the book Naomi says:

"For their rigorous proof-check and brilliant ideas, Rose Ward, Michelle Chapman and Janet Angus must be gratefully acknowledged..." :)

It's also made The Guardian's selection of the best gardening books of 2016.

Book Reviews

In 2011 and 2012 I reviewed specialist books for Green Places magazine, a publication which specialised in the design, legislation and issues faced by the UK's open spaces.

The books ranged from a dark poetry anthology through to the consideration of the sustainable design of the 2012 Olympic Park, with lots more in between.

It was a pleasure to read, review and learn from the publications which came my way. 

An eight page pdf selection of my published reviews can be read here.

I also review books here on Veg Plotting from time to time sourced from good gardening book publishers such as Timber Press, Frances Lincoln and the RHS. All my reviews and related bookish activities are gathered under my Books label.

Published Articles To Date

I write for Gabriel Ash; plus I look after Connect Group's Community Link-Up blog which documents their corporate fundraising and volunteering activities. I also look after West Green House Gardens' online presence (website, newsletter and social media).

I've also contributed to national newspapers, lifestyle and specialist magazines, and lots of websites and blogs. 

Here's a list of my work to date. Just like my blog, the range of subjects I'm commissioned to write about is broad.
