Hi,
Allotment prices vary across the country, with some people paying silly rates like £5 for a year, and others paying £80 or £90.

On our site, a 5 rod plot (which is what they call a half-sized plot) cost us £20.something pence for 2008-9.

There are sometimes concessions for elderly people, and I believe in some areas there are concessions for unwaged and people on low incomes.

I think a lot of them were about £30 odd pounds plus a subscription but all the ones close to me aren't putting anyone else on the waiting lists for the time being. Here's a link to the council website;

Good luck :mrgreen:

I don't have one hun, that's why I'm giving those seeds away! I've not been able to grow food on that scale since my grandad had to sell his house to mjove into his bungalow. We did miss it. :( But I have four little balconies that are big enough to put pots on. This year, I'm also taking advantage of the windows in work too. Two of my colleagues and I have decided to plant herbs and vegetables around the windows in work because the front of the building is glass fronted and gets tons of light. Just know all the watering and so on is gonna be my responsiblity, since I'm the dogsbody *ahem* I mean technician. :lol:
