Covid-19 Announcement


As the situation with Covid-19 continues to rapidly evolve, we have made the decision to postpone all sessions and events at Root ‘n’ Fruit and Eco Burslem, in the interest of public health, until further notice.

This decision has been made in the best interests of those attending, following the most recent government and health advice given, to avoid non-essential contact and social gatherings. The health and well-being of our staff and community has always been at the heart of the services that we offer at Root ‘n’ Fruit and Eco Burslem, and remains our priority at this difficult time.

We will keep you all updated as sessions and events are restored.

The allotment will continue to be looked after by our staff so that sessions can continue without delay when it is safe to do so. While we may be closed we will continue to provide updates via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

New Sign

Look at the new sign at Root ‘n’ Fruit thanks to local artist Lisa – it brings a wonderful splash of colour to the site, even on a winter’s day. Why not come down and have a look.

Fancy giving verticulture a go?

Do you know anything about vertical gardening or have any ideas/suggestions that Root ‘n’ Fruit could follow?

We are always looking for ways to keep gardening interesting and fun, and verticulture looks right up our street!

Please get in touch, via our Contact page, if you can help!



Big Dig!






We had a great turnout for our Big Dig event on Saturday 21st March.

Many thanks to everyone that turned up to help build our new greenhouse and tidy up our new allotment plot.
