Allotmenting can be extremely rewarding. There is nothing like harvesting your very own fresh and organic produce and bringing it to the dining table within hours. The difference between fruit and vegetables that you have grown yourself and those bought from Supermarkets is amazing. It can also be hard work (but cheaper than a gym!) so you may wish to browse the 'Information' links above to see if allotmenting is right for you.

A standard full plot is typically 253m² (10 perch) but is usually sub-divided into two half plots, each approximately 126 m² (5 perch). There are also several smaller plots of 55 to 75 m².
