Www. Urban-allotments.com has been trading for c7 years. It's slogan 'Great taste in a little space' sums up the company - helping people to grow their own in small spaces. Borne of my frustration at the lack of designer / practical ranges available through UK garden centres and the lack of options available for people with little or no outdoor space.

We've stocked a wide range of planters from the designer(sourced from Europe mainly) to the rustic and veg plants to enable our customers to grow their own in whatever space they have available.

Sales reached about £10K a month and web traffic even reached 10,000 visitors in one day when we ran a Groupon. We have a mailing list of over 2,500 built from customers and people we have met at gardening events e.g. Hampton Court. Our facebook site has 1012 'likes'. But it is the future which is more exciting for Urban Allotments with it's new owners.

When the business was started, we were fighting the tide and although PR came easily sales didn't. We were more of a 'magazine' than a shop. The market has now changed, and although we turned our marketing off a couple of years ago(due to personal reasons) orders still continue.

All of our supplier lists are available to the buyer, along with the all of the website, images and copy(which is the hard bit!).

We have c£5K of stock left which could be used to get you started.

The person who buys Urban Allotments is likely to have the following characteristics -

A garden centre or nursery - our plant sales reached several hundred plants a week and could have grown had we bought a nursery in order to handle them. We bought in and shipped out. Customers enjoyed the quality of our plants(UK grown) and the variety / ability to buy in small numbers. There would have been efficiencies to have had a physical shop as well as an online business.

A designer interior business who wants to expand into gardens / growing. The business could work well without the plants.

An internet entrepreneur with a flair of design and gardening.
