Growing your own plants has never been more popular. Not since the Second World War has such a demand for seed and allotment space been witnessed.
With an ever stronger organic movement, combined with the worry of genetically modifies crops and food scares almost constantly in the news, its no wonder.
Although there are many regulations and checks on the chemical sprays in this country, the same cannot be said for all imported produce. More worryingly, there is little research on the effects of mixing the numerous fungicides and insecticides that are available to today's modern farmer.
For the safety of our children and their future generations, we owe it to them to try and grow our produce as organically as possible. However, for those who want to be absolutely sure that their food is chemical-free, the only real peace of mind is - of course - to grow it themselves.
