    Hi paddy,

    I am wondering whether the Big Tree allotments in Co Meath are for renting for 1 year with 11 month renewable license of can one buy them and renew after 11 months?
    also, one one have the option of someone looking after his allotment if he didn’t have the time to travel down from Dublin all the time?

    I have rented an allotment from Paddy at Big Tree - no.3.

    While the past few months I have been really busy and havent spent time at the allotment, I have always found Paddy to be a true Gent. The people that I have met , are really sound,& I really look forward to spending more time up there,tending my veggies & learning to grow veg in the northern hemisphere. Im over the moon that I now have the actual space to grow veggies… Thanks a million Paddy & long may Big Tree last ;-)

    Yesterday, Sunday 9th May, my Wife and I visited Big Tree Allotments and had no hesitation in renting one of these lovely plots which have been prepared carefully and with precision. We found Paddy & Clare to be extremely helpful,and pleasant, and very knowledgeable of their subject. There is every facility there we could possibly want and need and within half an hour we had selected a plot, bought some seeds and arranged to have a shed put up during the coming week. Paddy showed us the type of shed we’ll be getting and its measurements of 6′ x 4′ are very adequate for our needs. We’re very happy to have found Big Tree Allotments and are convinced that we’d never find a better allotment or a nicer couple in charge. Thanks, Paddy & Clare - and looking forward to a long association with Big Tree Allotments
