    5 a week may seem expensive but it almost impossible to source a local authority allotment

    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

                    I still think it is expensive for a(small) allotment & people are being taken advantage of.
                    And if you want fresh air and exercise then go for a (long) walk.
                    I do even in the "growing season"

                      Allotment in Newcastle

                      Hi Germinator

                      I know what you mean about not being able to get an allotment, I've been told that I could be on the list for several more years. Can I ask you? Are we able to use our own sheds on the plots? We're thinking of applying for one.

                        Who is Germinator and do you realise this thread is two years old? The plots, if they are still there are probably more than a fiver a pop now!
