Once you've decided what to do with your plot I'd strongly recommend checking out Freecycle.
Here is a link to your local branch
The basic idea of the organisation is to avoid unnecessary landfill. Nothing is bought or sold - it's all given or acquired totally free of charge and is an ideal way of giving all sorts of goods a second life. You'd be amazed what people offer - or are looking for. I'm a regular user and have had no trouble at all finding (or giving) second homes for so many garden items from cold frames, mini-greenhouses, plant pots, veg seedlings - spare herbaceous plants after division, spare bulbs, seats, slabs, pallets for compost bins - plastic compost bins - the list is almost endless!!
Shoestring gardening is SO rewarding - give it a shot!! Good luck
