With Winter now settling in, we’re already starting to look ahead to the New Year. Spring is only a few months away and that means people will soon be back outside enjoying their gardens before you know it. Spring also welcomes back gardening and horticulture enthusiasts, who are looking for new ways to improve their gardens.
Surveys have shown that over the past few years, the interest in horticulture has continued to increase since 2015. Millennials are playing a big part in boosting the popularity of gardening. With trends such as veganism gaining momentum, gardening and horticulture are piquing the interest of 18-to-34-year-olds, looking to add healthily earth-grown foods to their diets. Surveys have shown that there has been a 7.5% increase since 2015 in people growing their own vegetables at home, taking the worth of home-produced vegetables from £1.2 billion to £1.3 billion in 2016.
People are also looking to put more time and effort into their gardens. While the housing market continues to grow and house prices increase, more and more people are becoming less willing to move to a new house and instead are opting to focus on and improve what they already have, and that includes their gardens.
This year we have established Copely’s most comprehensive range of gardening products yet.
