Our allotment society has over 140 members, and we welcome both novice and experienced gardeners. We are a friendly group, and you can always get advice and help from your fellow members if you need it.
Our members have a wide range of gardening styles. Many have traditional vegetable plots, filled with potatoes, onions, carrots and cabbages. Some of us also grow tree and soft fruit, such as apples, plums, raspberries and strawberries. Others prefer the 'cottage garden' style, with a range of flowers mixed in with their fruit and veg. Others again like to have somewhere they can relax on a summer afternoon, with a summer-house, patio, garden chairs and wildlife pond.
Some grow vegetables and flowers for shows and competitions, and some take part in 'monster vegetable' events. But most grow to feed themselves and their families, so that they know what their food contains, to enjoy the flavour of fruit and vegetables fresh from the plot, and to grow unusual varieties that can't be found in the supermarket.
Whatever your gardening style, we want you to enjoy allotment gardening and the social life that goes with it - and enjoy growing things that are fresher and taste better than you can buy.
