Allotments

Garden Produce

Would you like the opportunity to grow your own fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers?

We manage over 3,000 allotments and, with over 70 sites to choose from, there's sure to be one near you. Our interactive map shows where allotment sites are located across the city.
 

Benefits for You

Allotments are a good way of producing healthy delicious fruit and vegetables at a relatively low cost and you can produce them organically if you want to.

They are also a good way to make friends with people who share your interest in gardening.

There are plots designed for disabled people (wheelchair and non wheelchair users) available at some sites.

They are a great way to relax and unwind from the stresses of modern living and provide an excellent form of exercise for people of all ages and abilities.
 

First Steps

We promote allotments and encourage people to get the most out of their plots. However we also feel that people will find it more rewarding if they are realistic about what they are taking on: considering an allotment?

New allotment holders find that they quickly develop new skills and knowledge and many plot holders see the development of their allotment as part of a positive lifestyle choice.

If you feel that an allotment isn't for you, you can still Grow vegetables at Home.
