There are 41 plots, most are now half plots plus the “Comrie in Colour” Poly tunnel which is plot 31. Plots cost £44 for a 1/2 and £60 for a full plot
Despite the different weathers of the recent years, canny plot holders of Comrie have still managed to produce some plentiful crops of most kinds of vegetables.
