Allotments and gardening: How our storage units in Mitcham will help
2020 and everything we all went through saw a rise in the demand for allotments. Some council run allotments saw as much as a 300% increase in applications.
And with one in five people in London not having access to any kind of garden or outdoor space, it is not surprising that London has seen an even greater demand. Some London allotments have over 3,000 people on their waiting lists alone and Londoners are often looking at a decade-long wait, with Camden being the place with the longest wait. One Camden gardener had to wait over 18 years to gain access to a plot.
But with gardening having been proven to have substantial health benefits on a person’s physical and mental health, it is not surprising that so many people are still joining the waitlists and are willing to wait so long.
If you happen to be one of the lucky people to have an allotment within the Mitcham area, you may have found that you do not have the space to store your tools at home. Our self storage units in Mitcham would be a perfect place to store all your tools and equipment.
