The Plot 163b Story


This is our second plot on the Cromwell Road allotments site. 

From 2009 - 2015 we looked after plot 132b, and for some of that time, 133a, both of which are literally a stone's throw from 163b.

After a few years running Wishtree in Devon, we returned to Cromwell Road and set about turning this little allotment plot into a lush, abundant food forest.

We're designing using the Food Forest layers, scaled down to an appropriate scale and planted up with loads of tasty goodies



Canopy Layer

  • Amelanchier

  • Autumn Olive

  • Medlar

  • Mirabelle

Shrub Layer

  • Jostaberry

  • Blackcurrant

  • Siberian Currant

  • Tree Cabbage

Herbaceous Layer

  • Sedum

  • Day Lily

  • Babington's Leek

  • Soapwort


Here's a short video featuring an amazing plant we have in our little pond on site 163b.

It's called Tulbaghia, or Society Garlic, and has an amazing garlicky flavour
