With the interest in growing edibles at an all-time high, NParks will be adding 1,000 new gardening plots for enthusiasts in parks across Singapore by 2021. As a start, 230 new allotment garden plots at four parks will be made available.
Allotment Gardens: Gardening Plots in Singapore
The Allotment Garden scheme was first introduced at HortPark in 2016. These garden plots consist of a raised planter that is 2.5 metres by 1 metre. It comes with soil and a mini storage area.
Gardeners who has been allocated a plot are free to grow vegetables, herbs or other plants in them.
The garden plots can be leased for a period of three years at $57 per year. They are unfenced to allow the public to visit.
