Hints and tips for those that are new to an allotment garden

The internet is awash with advice on how to best create and look after your garden. We all have our own ideas on what a garden, or more accurately, an allotment should look like. Not all of us like the same vegetables or garden in the same way, so every plot is individual.

Basic rules apply however and they are very simple. Keep your plot tidy, cultivate considerately and enjoy.

On this website, there is an abundance of information both for the novice and the experienced gardener. There are plenty of allotmenteers who will be happy to advise.

This link on the RHS website is a really good place to start.

Happy allotmenteering.
