With National Allotments Week set to kick off on Monday (10 August), the National Trust is planning extra funding for the creation of new plots.
The National Trust aims, where possible, to register the sites through the Landshare website set up by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
The online "match-making" database sets up keen growers with those who have land available.
The National Trust's local food champion Jenny Sansom said: "We have had a tremendous response from people to this initiative. We now have a total of 35 allotment sites up and running, with more than 350 plots. Another 15 sites will be ready by next spring."
The National Trust will also be providing additional funds this autumn to help boost the number of allotment sites available on its land and these new sites will all be registered through the Landshare website.
A National Trust spokesman told HW the creation of 350 plots since it made its pledge in February was positive.
"Since we made the pledge, the uptake from properties has been bigger than we expected," he said.
Although a specific sum of money has not been set for funding projects, properties are being invited to apply centrally for cash to carry out work.
"It won't be a bottomless pit," explained the National Trust spokesman. "It will depend on the applications we receive as to what the amount of extra funding will be."
