Grow your own in the market garden of Ulster

Are you concerned about the amount of chemicals in your fruit and vegetables, want to live a healthy life, take up a new hobby, or even just relax with the family? If the answer to any of the above is "Yes" then Ards Allotments could be your solution.

The increasing pressure on available land in our towns and cities means that private gardens are becoming smaller and smaller. The growing number of people who live in apartments have no garden at all.

At Ards Allotments we provide managed plots where you can indulge your horticultural ambitions to the full. You will also be part of a commumity of like-minded people who can help you get started if you are a novice gardener.

Gardening Classes

We provide tailor made classes to suit your requirements either at an agreed location or on the plots based on the Comber Road where we have under cover facilities
