All you need to do is write to the local authority with a list of names and addresses of interested people and it should legally find you all space for an allotment. This is all well and good, but in their defence there is no time limit to when they have to provide you with the spaces. But it’s worth a shot. Applying for an allotment The first place to go when you want to apply for an allotment is your local council. Most council websites have a section on applying for an allotment, which guides you through the application process.

A maximum of three hives is permitted to each acre of land. ✓ You need to force your bees to fly above head height and not across paths. Traditionally, bees kept in an urban environment are housed in hives on roofs so that their line of flight avoids people and the inevitable stings. You can use willow hurdles or similar as screens to direct your bees’ flight path. ✓ You must be aware of how to deal with swarming. Bees naturally swarm between April and July but can also do so at other times. During the swarming season, you need to check your hive at least once a week for the signs of swarming, which include more bees than usual climbing around the front of the box, agitated behaviour and forming a conical shape on the bottom of the hive.

What’s the sense in wasting precious energy and adding to an already polluted planet simply so we can have food out of season? The beauty of an allotment garden is that as one season ends another comes sprinting along offering alternative treats to tempt you. By embracing what your allotment offers seasonally you end up having a much more varied, fresh and exciting diet whilst also cutting out your contribution to CO2 emissions through ‘food miles’. ) slaving away in overcrowded, overpriced gyms, whereas working over an allotment can offer a great way to help you keep fit and healthy.
