    Hi, a full plot on our allotment is £35 a year a half plot £17.50, we have water on tap included for.that and access to wood chippings free.
    Also guys on the committee source things for the plot holders very cheaply and we can club together to buy bulk.
    Also we have member ship to another plot which means for 10p a year we can buy discounted seeds and supplies for our plots from their shop.
    We also have a community orchard where we can help ourselves to produce.
    Shared large compost area and this year we are making a community seating and bbq area too.
    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. ~Author Unknown

    £35 for the year for 10x10m which is a bargain imo!

    The one I'm hoping to get in a week or so is £15 per year plus £1 allotment membership. Plots are all about 10m X 10m

    Mine will be free this year because it needs a lot of work, however a full plot is £35 which includes water tanks around the site (no hose pipes), a few car parking areas, a toilet (spring-autumn), a shop (weekends, Feb - October) and association membership. I think there is also a friendly tree surgeon who will drop chip for a pint or two and a "Muck Man" (no idea on cost etc. for that).

    Plus £5 deposit for the gate key, due to rise to £10 on 1st April.

    This new one in north Hamoshire cost my Dad a whole £9! Got over 60's discount plus some more off for taking it on late in the year.

    My previous half plot in Manchester cost me £43 inc. society membership and insurance. They didn't do student discount sadly!
