Even though we have over 600 plots, we still have waiting lists with some sites proving more popular than others. If you are interested in becoming an allotment holder and wish to be put on the waiting list then please phone 01296 425678 or e-mail email@example.com
We manage the list by allowing only one waiting list entry per household, providing a choice of a 2.5, 5 or 10 (maximum) pole plot and encouraging the sharing of plots between family and friends.
With ‘beginners’ in mind, we are endeavouring to provide more 2.5 pole plots on all sites, to give the new allotment gardener a manageable piece of land to start with. We also have Wardens on each site, who with their wealth of gardening knowledge, will be able to give you advice and answer any questions you may have.
We carry out regular inspections of the sites to ensure that plots are being managed by allotment holders, address any problems they may have and to make sure all is running well.
The Aylesbury Gardening Society was established in 1880 and is still going strong. One of their prime functions is to run the Thurston Trading Store, located on the Old Stoke Road allotment site. The store is open Sundays from 09.00am – 12.00 noon, Thursdays from 6.30pm – 8.00pm during April and May only. You will find all members ready and willing to help with all your gardening/allotments queries plus you can get all of your supplies from the store. The society also has a programme of events including outings, talks and their Annual Show. The membership fee is very reasonable.
The National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners offer a wealth of information and advice on getting started, planning your plot and gardening methods along with tips on what to do each month.
