Having an allotment is a great way of getting your hands on valuable gardening space and is also a great opportunity to meet fellow allotment holders. Allotments have a new role to play in the way we live our lives today, not only do they provide us with a place to grow fruit and vegetables they are a place to escape to away from the hassles of everyday life. Nothing beats the satisfaction of growing something from seed, to put food on your table and being able to say "I grew that" So why not check out the allotments in your area and get sowing and growing today!
