National Allotment Week
There's nothing quite like growing your own fruit and vegetables.
Lighting up when you realise that seed you planted just a few short weeks ago has transformed into a magnificent pumpkin. Harvesting that wonderful, fresh, seasonal produce straight from the earth and turning it into something sensational in the kitchen.
This National Allotment Week we're celebrating all the home growers - from the seasoned pros to those giving it a go for the first time.
What are your top tips for first time growers? Share your stories and pictures with us this week on Instagram.
