For a while now we have been struggling with moving stuff between the house and the allotment, whether it be seedlings that I have started off at home or larger items like slabs or fence posts.

In my wisdom I bought a fiat 500c, just after we took on the allotment, not a great choice! Despite having a larger car (hubbies) it’s not always around to go ‘allotment shopping’, so these days, whatever I can I order online and have it delivered to the house. The problem had become getting it from the house to the allotment. Only a ten minute walk but it can feel like hours when you’re carrying something heavy!

Those that know me will also remember that I’m somewhat of an Amazon addict. So this was my first (and only) port of call in looking for a solution.  It was here that I spotted this fantastic garden trolley made by Draper, sold on Amazon and dispatched by Richard Dyer.

I wasn’t disappointed, fast delivery and after a little fiddling with the locking bolts to get the thing together, it works a dream, super sturdy and easy to manoeuvre and can manage weights of up to 200kg!

I now finally feel I can give my car a proper clean and spare it from have grubby allotment tools etc.

All is well again!

You can buy the trolley here.
