Warriston Allotments
My plot at Warriston Allotments by Carol Marr

I've been a plot holder for over 15 years. For me it's always been more than the science of vegetable growing. Although I cannot deny a real sense of personal satisfaction from digging, planting, tending, weeding, and just waiting for your produce to bloom.

Each has its own personality, some functional in purpose, while others are more esoteric in their outlook. These vary from brightly coloured floral displays to random garden objects, including a mishmash of cobbled together sheds and greenhouses.

The allotments are also about the importance of community, especially the people and the sharing of their horticultural highs and lows. It's also about the sharing of rural space in an urban landscape, much more than a simple plot.
