    hi, my name is Paul and by chance looking for an allotment to rent in Edinburgh I seen your ad.I would like to know if this is still available? my passion is gardening, I grew up looking after gardens for the elder friends of my grandfather in a local village in the borders.I moved to Edinburgh with my partner nearly 6 years ago luckily into a flat with a garden, which had been left to grow wild for years but that for me was as I looked at it a project that I would love and after a whole summer I turned it around to a beautiful garden full of vegetables, herbs, flowers and also a lovely place to sit on nice days.since I moved home nearly 3 years ago due to us having children needing a larger flat i had to give up the garden as choice for flats with gardens a very limited i have been trying unsuccessfully to find an allotment.please could you let me know if this wonderful opportunity is still available as this would be something I would love to do.thanks

    Carrots,that original post is over 5 years old. In any event, do you really want to pay over £100 for a plot?

    Further to that ^^ it is not really a good idea to post personal details (phone/email) on public forums there are spam bots out there looking for that sort of information also Ulla has not even logged onto the forum since 31-05-2008 so it would be a safe bet it is no longer available

    Hi,
    I saw your request for a companion gardener for your friend and would be grateful if you could let me have some further information re your friend, site etc. I am a 58 year old woman (Madge) who has no garden and really miss the connection with the earth. I am interested in starting a herb/healing plant garden and would love to hear from you.
    Many thanks,
    Madge.

    Hi Madge, welcome to the forum. Unfortunately the thread is 7 years old.

    Hello

    I have a front and back garden which I do not use or have time to maintain myself and I wonder if perhaps anyone would be interested in using the space as allotments?
    My house is near the Cameron Toll Shopping Centre.

    I have various space/plots available as follows:

    1x 3.8m x 6.8m (Front Garden)
    1 x 6.8m x 0.70m (Front Garden)

    1 x 0.9m x 4.6m (Back Garden)
    1 x 1.00m x 4.70m (Back Garden)
    1 x 7.3m x 1.20m (Back Garden)
    1 x 1.5m x 3.00m (Back Garden)

    Please can you advise me if this is a viable option for me to do?


    Please pm me if you are interested
