    5 a week may seem expensive but it almost impossible to source a local authority allotment
    hope this is of help to someone

    250 a year for 90 square metres that's extortionate
    To get your money back at that price you would have to grow cannabis

    I pay under 5 a month for my 300+ sq yard plot (Charnwood Borough Council)

    The river Trent is lovely, I know because I have walked on it for 18 years.

    Seem to remember that plots with greenhouses cost more to rent too.

    P.S. I thought the whole idea about grow your own was to save money as home grown vegetables were cheaper(& healthier) than the supermarket stuff.

    I still don't know how you would get 250 of produce off a 90 sq yard plot if you have had to buy seeds & other stuff too.

    As i said yes it is expensive but there are no local authority plots available , i have been on the list over 3 years and have only moved up one place. .
    The sheds and greenhouses used to be extra and are now included in the rent .
    It is not all about growing cheap veg , i get alot of enjoyment out of mine , some lovely fresh veg.,socalise with like minded people and get out of wor lasses hair lol
    There is about a 70% take up rate at the moment and 90 sqm seems adequate for most . how many underused weed infested allotments to we see else ware
    5 a week is not bad for a hobby considering its not even the cost of 2 pints of beer

    5 a week is a lot less than it would cost in gym membership and you get fresh veg as well as fitness from it. Hope you have a good growing year davey
