Because of high density housing, Britain has many allotments.
You can apply to lease a piece of land to garden.
I think these may heave originated during the war, when food was scarce,
and people were encouraged to grow their own food.
I pass one lot of allotments on my way to work, so today I stopped to take some photos.
The gardening season has not yet started, so the allotments are not productive at the moment.
Aren't they lovely?
