    Talk to me about allotments. Trying to find out where online you apply for them leads to many dead links and dead websites.

    I know someone who finally got a response about Coton Fields, I think it involved phone-calls, online seems to be 'still in the future'.

    The best way is probably to approach an actual person on-site - and get a direct contact by some means.

    Pretty much this, but it is for a garden rather than an allotment. As well as storage, it serves as a bolt-hole in the summer and somewhere I can watch the birds.

    ETA Here it is. I've just found the photo on Facebook. 2012. No wonder I couldn't find it on my HD. Doesn't time fly.

    A lot of allotments now have a No-Glass policy, although other transparent sheet materials are available, of course.

    That would be good as a potting shed too, to keep your seeds warm...

    Visiting the site on a Sunday morning is probably the best way!

    I agree about visiting the site you fancy having a plot on - its the best way. It's how I got my plot - I got talking to some plot holders when I was out taking my mother for a spin in her wheelchair, They invited us in to look round - hard going pushing a wheelchair on an allotment site. I thought about it for a few weeks and then made the commitment to have a plot. My mother used to come and supervise in her wheelchair and I have a garden of remembrance on the plot with flowers she supervised me planting. I still think of it as mums allotment - happy memories when I'm digging.

    Not yet, it was more research into costs etc, as the mrs is interested in growing food.
