This allotment within our outdoor gardens features of all sorts of vegetables, from the likes of trusty potatoes and cabbages to more unusual crops from around the world, such as mizuma leaves, sweet potato, chillies and lemongrass.

There’s a special focus on vegetable patches from India, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Caribbean and China – you’re sure to recognise many of the plants from your own favourite dishes.

It's a great place to get ideas for your own garden, such as how to make your own pots out of old tyres or wellies, or how to deter slugs. You can find out more about growing heritage seeds here too, and even meet our lovely scarecrows.
