Outstanding community, with nature at its fore front. The most amazing location with all facilities well thought out and the most helpful team. A must if you are looking for that extra space to expand your growing knowledge of veg, fruit and flowers 🌸

Steph Holburn

"My husband has wanted an allotment for ages but the council waiting lists could have been years. He loves gardening and wanted to grow his own veg. Thanks to Roots I was able to get him this for Christmas"


We have had a fab time getting started 😊 everyone be so lovely and really form a community. We already got things growing which is really exciting and the view is just wonderful 😊

John Middleton

Great site- we were one of the first to get on and have had some great results already- the guys running it are incredibly friendly- full of knowledge and also passionate about their project. The site is very well furnished- loads of tools and water stations- free compost on site, and some organic fertiliser- plus loads of events and regular updates and top seasonal tips. Seeds and plug plants come along with membership- great value, wholesome- fun and recommended.


Such a great idea! Started here about 6 weeks ago and I’m loving it. Everybody is so friendly and helpful. The setup makes everything easy and straightforward and the guys are always available for help and advice (which I need loads of!).

"I have never had an allotment and I don't know much but I wanted to learn a new hobby and lifestyle. Tuckers Meadow by the Avon looked like a great site for this as they are also providing guidance and creating a community to learn from others"
