Grow your own at one of our allotments

COVID-19 (Coronavirus): Use of allotment sites

Cardiff’s allotments can still be used during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, but in line with government advice, new guidance has been introduced to ensure they are used safely.

To all allotment holders, please follow the instructions below:

  • If you are self-isolating, do not enter the site.
  • Observe social distancing with each other, keep 2 metres apart and minimise contact with each other.
  • Keep hand sanitiser with you and use it regularly, particularly before and after opening and closing gates and handling padlocks.
  • Wear disposable gloves and change these regularly.
  • Do not share tools. Wipe your own tools down after use.
  • Do not wash your hands in water troughs.
  • Stay on your own plot, do not enter other plots, even if you have had prior permission

With immediate effect all communal facilities will be closed, including toilets.

Grow your own

Growing food locally is one way we can all help to reduce our carbon footprint – you can’t beat the taste of fresh produce, especially if you have grown it yourself!  Allotment keeping is a great way to keep fit, enjoy the fresh air, make friends and grow your own favourite fruit and vegetables.  If you’ve got room you can even grow flowers for cutting!

Allotment gardening is increasing in popularity and demand for allotment plots in Cardiff is soaring.

Many of Cardiff’s allotments have benefited from increased investment in recent years, providing better access roads, new water supplies, security fencing and composting toilet facilities.

If you are a Cardiff resident and want to take up allotment gardening, you can register your interest in applying for a plot.

If you are new to allotment gardening – or would like some information about keeping an allotment, we have prepared a handy guide (2.7 mb PDF) giving a summary of the rules in the tenancy agreement and helpful tips on planting and managing your plot.
