    Oh dear, I think here by the South coast we've got the most expensive plots, I pay £90 for a year for 7 rods! It includes water and there is a toilet too.

    Hi All, thanks for the welcome. I grow just about everything lol. Mostly potatoes, sweetcorn, courgettes, beetroot, peas n beans etc. A few mature fruit trees and fruit bushes, also strawberries and raspberries. Anything that kids will eat lol. We're down south so much warmer climate, however, I'm by the sea so we've got the winds to contend with.

    Any tips on managing windy plots?

    I'm in a coastal location too, I've planted wind breaks to try and reduce the problem, there are things I just don't bother growing if I can't get shorter plants, brussels are a problem, they just rock in the wind so I have given up growing them. Lots of flowers that get battered by the wind too, even had roses snapped by the wind, worse in the winter too.

    So I'm in Montrose Angus and the plot is £26 for 130m2 (that's something like 5.14 rods). The prices onsite vary depending on plot size from £14 - £48. There appears to be water supplied with a tap situated right outside my plot 🙂.
    It's council run and from what I can tell there's no kind of committee there although I'm sure I will get more info Monday when I get the key.
    There are no gardening mistakes, only learning curves

    No matter how big the job or overwhelming the task, a good dose of sheer obstinacy and bloody-mindedness should see you through

    We pay £74/yr for a full size plot 25m x 10m. Water on tap but we’ve installed water butts off the shed roof
