The Story of Urban Allotments!

Founded in 2008 we are still a relatively new company, but with every season our confidence and offering grows. Started as a family business, we’ve grown into a flourishing small enterprise building the team slowly but surely with people who believe in our values as strongly as we do.

We believe that everyone and anyone can grow their own in whatever space they have available without compromising their outdoor living space.

Where did the idea come from?

Rachael decided she'd like an allotment a few summers ago.  An allotment she got (well, a series of raised beds because she’s not too into digging!) complete with little baby vegetables and herb plugs from a nursery run by friends.

She slowly but surely became totally hooked on the whole idea of growing your own, opening the kitchen doors to check out dinner rather than the fridge quickly becoming part of her evening ritual.

Talking with work colleagues about her newly found passion for growing, Rachael found herself trying to find solutions to their desire to follow suit when hindered by their lack of garden space, an ability to get to a garden centre or when they did get to one not finding anything they liked.

And so was born the idea of growing crops in stylish yet functional pots that would instantly add character and design to patios, balconies, porches. Increasingly we have spread our range into larger gardens with raised beds and fruit trees.

Where are we now?

Rachael works full time with Urban Allotments now along with trusted team members down in Sussex. The original allotment has just been moved to create a fabulous raised bed kitchen garden surrounding the new office in a converted stable block. Noel is still in Shropshire where we have poly-tunnels and warehousing.

We regularly attend conferences and exhibitions and even travelling abroad finding new and unusual ranges to offer you.

What next?

You’ll see more of this year and in the future. We’ve kept Urban Allotments a little underwraps but now we are ready to spread the word.
