    The popularity of allotments has increased in recent years with a growing interest in producing your own cheap, freshly grown food and the opportunity to escape, for a short time, from the stresses of everyday life.

    Taking on your own allotment plot can allow you to grow your own fruit and vegetables, experiment with growing new produce, have valuable outdoor exercise, help clear your mind and relieve stress and make new friends and interact with a variety of people.
