Allotment...

Our allotment at Ashton House Nursery supports children’s curiosity with how things grow.

Our on-site allotment area has been planted close to our orchard, with a large number of vegetables, fruits and herbs. The children are actively involved in the planting and harvesting, using the fruits and vegetables to make homemade crumbles or soups. In the Summer months our famous Sunflower display really comes into its own, which the children plant from seed.

Younger children and babies enjoy the sensory elements of our allotment space, with its great array of colour, texture and scent. Children also enjoy painting and drawing in this space, with such an array of plants and wildlife to inspire creativity. The allotment also has its own enchanting cottage, the perfect hideout from which to watch the butterflies from.
