Welcome to the forum :)
The price depends on many things, location, amenities and size, for example. London allotments are always going to be more expensive than equivalents elsewhere.
I have a 5 perch plot in Asford, Kent with no amenities, except the site's perimeter fence and water taps only turned on for the summer months, and this costs £36.
Pensioners and others on certain benefits get a 50% discount.

Here in Worcester my last bill was £64 for a full plot with no concessions. Your price sounds about right for London.

£125 for London sounds very good to me.  What else could you do for £2.40 per week. You'll have fresh air, exercise (which would cost a fortune in a gym), friends to chat to and loads of lovely fresh fruit and veg to enjoy.  Brilliant value for money!

£50 for a full plot next year, £25 for a half plot - discounts for pensioners - and some water where I am. More expensive in posh town by a tenner. £70 for a full plot locally if you rent from Northumberland Estates  - some water there too.

I guess from what's been said that's the going rate for London we pay £105 per year but then we have several plots so its good value for money that's the upside is using the plot to its full potential and the downside growing weeds

My bill was £54 last year for 2 x 1/2 plots with water. Every year we have the chance of a portaloo but thereís always more for against than for but that would be an extra cost.

Not removed by any of the mods as far as I can see.  Not sure where that has gone.  Have another go  :)

We pay £55 for a 500 square metre plot (classed as a double) and includes water. Concessions are half that price.

 I don't know what is going on.  As I said before I can't see anyone here is removing your posts.  All actions by moderators are logged.

When you hit preview it will show you what you have typed, but won't post it on the forum unless you hit post.  Sorry if that seems a bit obvious, but just a thought.  I have asked admin to have a look.  If the posts have been deleted by yourself in error, they will show in a log.  If they are not there, they never were, if you see what I mean  :)

It isnít that.  You can add a link so long as you have no financial interest in any site you are posting a link to.  On the rare occasion people post things that are removed, a moderator will send them a message explaining why.

There are no deleted posts for you, so you have not correctly posted in the first place.  Hitting enter rather than the post button is a common one.
