Welcome to Warriston Allotments
The 121 plots at Warriston, a large south facing site on the north side of Edinburgh, were created for unemployed families during the depression of the late 1920s.
Thanks to the city's allotment policy the land continues to be dedicated to a wide and welcoming community of local growers who rent full or half plots on a yearly basis. The waiting list for Warriston is currently 8 years—if you would like to put your name on this list, or find out more, go to City of Edinburgh Council allotment information. Please do not contact us re renting a plot—we are unable to reply to your enquiry as all city allotments are administered and allocated by the Edinburgh City Council.
The contact form is for Warriston plot holders only, to share ideas/enquiries/contributions. We cannot reply to enquiries about plot rental or waiting lists—please see above.

No bonfires through summer until October.
Perennial weeds can be drowned for 3-4 weeks before adding to your compost heap—they provide many nutrients as are often deep-rooted and therefore mineral rich.
Do not dump weeds, sods etc in the woods or elsewhere.
COVID 19 Please help keep the site a safe and healthy place to be. Wash hands regularly. Use gloves or sanitiser when using the gate padlock and taps. Take care, respect others and distance as appropriate.
