Gardening can be an enjoyable and a rewarding experience, particularly when the end result is beneficial to you. Allotments are great for this, because they can be rented for you to use, because they allow even those of us who own a flat and no garden to enjoy gardening, and they can be a great way for you to grow some of your own food, and get involved with other people who are doing the same thing.

Allotments which are available for rent typically come in large plots of land which are then divided up into a number of allotments. They are ideal for growing food, but they can be used for flowers just as easily. In addition, because they typically come with a number of neighbours also growing food, you can usually trade with them for things which you aren’t trying to grow, and get advice from them on various issues as well.
