So your considering having an allotment.
Taking on an allotment plot requires a reasonable amount of time. It is very unlikely that when you are allocated a plot it will be ready for cultivation. Unfortunately you will have to control the weeds, this does not have to be so daunting as you should prepare growing areas at your own pace, you will still need to comply with cultivation rules.
There is a lot of advice available on how to make your new plot a success. Please use the links on our website.
Before you make that decision taking on an allotment plot, consider the following advice:
1). Take an allotment plot that is closest to your home, travelling time is wasted time.
2). If you have been offered a full plot but think it may be too big, ask for a half plot. On Whinney Hill we are offering starter plots, these plots are a little smaller.
3). Where possible involve the family, this may allow you more time on your plot.
4). Plan out your plot on paper with ideas that’s best suited for you.
5). Only purchase garden tools that you need, after you have decided to take on your plot.
6). A well planned allotment can provide produce all year round.
7). If you are still unsure, advice is always available.
8). Should you take on a plot we expect you to get it tidy and start cultivating within a reasonable time, your site rep will advise.
