National Society of Allotment and Leisure Gardeners - useful links to other gardening and vegetable Websites on this otherwise very boring site.

Allotments UK - part of the Royal Horticultural Society's Website, this offers a motley collection of tips (maybe collections of tips are always a bit motley, whatever that is ?), and links to lots of other Websites about growing and marketing organic/sustainable/local food. Very useful.

Allotment and Vegetable Gardening Ring - a useful portal giving links to lots of other sites about growing vegetables and starting and maintaining allotments. There are 70 sites on it - you can search them for any particular subject you are looking for.

Sam's site - another beginner's story, engagingly told, and simply laid out.

other Allotment Associations - about 50 on this site

The Future for Allotments, Government report, 1998 - lots of interesting and useful information

The Allotment Sourcebook - an excellent new book - review and 20% discount for llotment-holders and Eynsham residents.

general vegetable/garden Websites

Paul's' Garden World - comprehensive site with useful tips on almost everything - composting, weeds, individual plants, pests, tools, the lot.

The Royal Horticultural Society - a huge Website - as it says, the Gateway to Gardening. They have a special section to help you grow your own.

The BBC's gardening section - mostly about flower gardens, but type Vegetables into the Search box and you'll find a lot of helpful stuff.

HDRA The Organic Organisation has a page on starting an allotment - from scratch - very detailed and down-to-earth guide - a really useful resource for first-timers.

Bunty's Blog is a very good fortnightly guide to starting an allotment.
