The notes and timings given in this calendar relate to the conditions likely to be found in North-East Cheshire, UK. The Coppice Road Allotment site is situated in quite an exposed position on the lower western slopes of the Pennines; giving quite a cold, wet and windy site relative to other sites which may be at lower altitude, lower latitude or a more sheltered position. For these reasons the growing season commences later and finishes earlier than other, more congenial, situations. Many of the gardening guides provide timings more suited to conditions to be found in the southern areas of the UK in more ideal growing positions. As an approximate guide the typical growing season in Poynton can be shortened by upto a fortnight at each end, (i.e. upto a month overall), and this should be considered when choosing varieties, or sowing and planting dates. It is always preferable to check that the soil and weather conditions are suitable for sowing and planting, rather than adhere rigidly to a strict timetable.
