GREEN-FINGERED residents in Welwyn Hatfield will be pleased to know they now have a better chance of road-testing their horticultural skills.
With popular TV shows like River Cottage and What to Eat focusing on growing your own produce, it's no surprise the demand for allotments has risen.
And, because of that demand, Welwyn Hatfield Council has now re-opened three sites that had been closed previously due to a lack of interest.
The sites, Marley Road and St Audreys Green both in WGC, and one in Hawbush Rise in Welwyn, have unfortunately been snapped up.
However, there are available allotment plots in Hatfield in Hazeldine Meadows, Raven Court, Firs Close, and Briars Wood.
Councillor Mark Gilding, executive member for environment, is pleased the sites are now available to residents to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables.

He said: "The resurgence in interest for allotments in the borough is exciting.
"I'm sure people will be providing some truly excellent produce that they can be really proud of.
"It's also great for people who have limited access to outside space of their own to be able to enjoy the great outdoors."
