If your garden is full of wildflowers and your allotment gardening needs to tie in with the natural look, keep a natural finish to the wooden shed and surround the building with plenty of greenery so it has a woodland feel. Quirky objects such as an antique kettle will complement the allotment perfectly. Plant pots which look distressed and weather-worn will also add to the rustic charm.
Flower tubs are an allotment design idea, perfect for small sheds. Raising them up creates the illusion of a window flower box and offers the allotment shed traditional charm and character. Planting seasonal flowers in tubs offer a visual feature when your allotment is looking bare.
