Young families with children are at the forefront of a renewal of interest in growing food, according to a report.
Demand for allotments is also at an all-time high, with much of it coming from young families and especially from mothers, according to the research.
The 12 per cent rise in the cost of staple groceries over the last year, which has added £750 to the average annual grocery bill, is the key factor in the increase in those growing their own.
