Paid a visit to Julian Ave and Kelvinside allotments this week. Much bigger sites than ours with about 50 plots each but fully utilised and a long waiting list. Met lots of busy and cheery plotholders and came away with lots of interesting ideas. I would love to have a pond on our plot but there is not enough room. Its maybe something we could consider a year or two down the line for the clubhouse area.
They have introduced raised beds for new gardeners rather than giving them a full plot. Some of the raised beds are on a hill which would have been difficult to work otherwise. Something we will need to consider for the new site at Oatlands Gate as the drop on the river side is very steep.
Photos of the new site uploaded onto our Facebook page this week so do check it out.
