Did you know that there are over 20 allotment associations in the Borough of Wellingborough! Ladywell Allotments is the one on Finedon Road on the east of Wellingborough. We have over 100 plots, mostly filled with members growing fruit and veg for themselves and for the enjoyment of gardening.
At Ladywell Allotments you can rent a small plot for between £30-£40 a year and it can be a very rewarding pastime. There are many benefits, including physical exercise, mental wellbeing, healthy eating, reducing food miles, social interaction and family bonding. Allotments are wonderful places where you can listen to the birds singing, breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun on your skin and of course enjoy the fruits of your labour.
No allotment is complete without recycling. A compost bin or heap of some kind will not only do they give you somewhere to dispose of your weeds, but also provide valuable compost free of charge. Water butts can be linked to shed rooves to catch the rain; and of course lots of old things come in useful on your plot, you can use wood to make your bean canes, or you can even use your old bath at your allotment, it’s perfect for growing carrots in.
