    Default New Allotment

    Hi, I'm looking to take on an allotment and will be collecting the keys tomorrow. There's some fruit trees and bushes on the plot already and the lady who showed me the plot knew what they were. She was unable to advise what the attached could be. Any ideas? New Allotment-img_20190305_080408__01.jpg

    Thank you for your replys.

    One more thing you may be able to advise on. The plot has a shed that isn't padlocked. There's some stuff in the shed, some of which I believe to be fairly pricey, a petrol cultivator. The lady who showed me around said she didn't know anything about it and it must have been left by the previous holder. I have some bits that I will be putting in the shed but I will want to padlock it. My concern is whoever has left their stuff in there may be a current holder who doesn't have their own shed so thought they would use the one on the empty plot. What's the normal etiquette with these things? Shall I lock it up untill someone asks me for the stuff, or should I be more proactive and ask around. I'm concerned if I just lock it and wait it may be viewed that I'm trying to keep it for myself. But I'm also a cynic and worry if I ask people if it's theirs they may just say yes so they can have it.

    Just lock it, it’s your shed now and anyone using it to store their stuff in will have to come to you and ask for it. I don’t think anyone would risk storing their stuff on a vacant plot anyway - the cultivator probably belonged to the previous tenant, and they decided they had no use for it once they gave up the plot.
