Something that's put me off getting allotment space is that I would have very little (and irregular) time to tend it.

So something that requires very little care and attention would be in order.

Would it be practicable to grow willow etc in the size of typical allotment plots? Are there rules preventing the planting of trees in allotments?

I suspect they wouldn't like it, as there are rules about not letting the allotment get "overgrown". You'd need to explain very carefully tp them why you were doing it.

Adjacent allotment owners might not appreciate the shade?
