Yes good luck Tycerrig , this is a good site for practical advice , I would recommend a book on allotments that does a month by month calendar but remember it is only a guide

Bio , thanks for update , foggy and frosty hear at moment but spent weekend at allotment repairing fences and relaying paths with shredded material that is delivered free for everybody to use 

Long time since I last moved , 26 years ago in fact , I only brought a few plants in pots , 6 I recall , as this was a newly built house with bear soil easier to restart from scratch and had been evolving ever since 

Good luck with finding some where
