Garden Which? has recently reported that more people than ever are growing their own fruit and vegetables at home, with 1 in 4 people now joining in with some form of GYO.
Their online survey included over 1000 people and concluded that over 59 percent of people had begun to grow their own food because ‘increases in food prices mean I’m trying to be more economical’.
Another 22 percent said that they had less disposable income to spend on food and therefore this was a way to obtain more expensive edibles.
So why do you love GYO so much and what do you love about growing your own food? Is it saving money, having fresh produce or being outdoors and getting lots of fresh air and exercise? We’d love to hear from you!
Love your environment! Love your GYO!
