Now that Spring is here and more people are at home than ever before, the Grow Your Own (GYO) trend is increasingly popular. It’s an activity that doesn’t require much space, whether that’s in or outdoor, but it rewards gardeners with visible and edible results.
Good weather coupled with the COVID-19 lockdown has boosted Grow Your Own search and sales across the UK. Evergreen Garden Care recognises that garden spaces are one of the key sanctuaries for households during this unprecedented time, with more people using their own safe, green retreat to exercise, relax and learn new skills.
Marketing Director for UK and Ireland at Evergreen Garden Care, Ann-Marie O’Riordan, says “We are incredibly proud of our new and existing product lines. Growing your own fruit and vegetables is practical, but can also act as a form of escapism. It can be scaled up or down depending on the space available and by any gardener however skilled, making it the perfect opportunity for our customers to offer the best products to consumers looking for advice and guidance on easy things to do at home.”
In light of this, Evergreen Garden Care presents its top four GYO products to stock up on:
