If you’re thinking it’s about time you downsized your home to either a bungalow or a flat, you might be worried about leaving your lovely garden that you’ve put so many hours into making look beautiful. Many retirement developments have landscaped gardens or allotments nearby, so you can enjoy living in a smaller more practical home, but can continue feeding your passion for gardening.
Many allotments have long waiting lists, so it’s best to get your name down early. If a friend has an allotment, why not ask if you can help with weeding or watering the plants, and you never know, you might get offered some of the surplus fruit and veg for your efforts. If you don’t want to put your name down on a waiting list, or you don’t know anyone with an allotment, why not look out for a community allotment? A community allotment is usually run by volunteers and is for local people to help out as much or as little as you like and of course share what they grow.
