We started ALLOTINABOX® in the middle of one of the worst economic shocks in recent history. This meant people were being more cautious about spending money but with more and more people interested in sustainability and being green we saw a great opportunity to encourage people to get involved in growing their own... saving on their weekly shop whilst enjoying the benefits of growing food at home.
So we came up with the concept of an allotment in a box. With space at a premium and allotment waiting lists standing at upwards of 10 years in some places, we thought there’s got to be a better way to get people growing, in the smallest urban spaces or even in the heart of the city.
We set about developing our box concept, coming up with all the concepts and ideas for a product and service that would provide people with the knowledge and basics for growing their own food, no matter what space they have available
Here at ALLOTINABOX® we enjoy real food, to us that’s delicious fresh fruit and veg, grown at home, plucked from the garden, or harvested on a bijou balcony or rooftop. We want to help you discover how wonderful it is to grow fresh fruit and vegetables, and make you realise that you don't need a great deal of space to get growing. Our GYO boxes can help anyone from Urban residents to Kitchen Gardeners tap into the joy of growing and harvesting fresh food at home.
If you are a seasoned grower or young professional with little or no experience of growing food, through our Grow Your Own products and fabulous website we aim to provide you with simple practical advice and ingenious ways to plant our seeds and grow them into delicious crops all year long.
The response to our products so far has been nothing short of fantastic and this is just the beginning....
