There are many organisations and groups that can help you with advice and guidance. We (and you) are members of the National Allotment Society and you have free access to all of the help on their website. You can also get a very good supply of organic plug plants delivered to your door if you haven’t got room to sow and pot on from a number of reputable suppliers.

We have listed a few of those companies and groups that we have used, worked with or can recommend below:

The National Allotment Association

The National Allotment Society (NSALG) is the leading national organisation upholding the interests and rights of the allotment community across the UK. We work with government at national and local levels, other organisations and landlords to provide, promote and preserve allotments for all. We offer support, guidance and advice to our members and those with an interest in allotment gardening.

In 2011, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales kindly agreed to become the Patron of the Society. The Prince is an avid gardener himself and advocate of green issues, he is also keen to promote and protect the UK’s enduring traditions.

Royal Horticultural Society

We’re a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. We want to enrich everyone’s life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
