As we have entered the 21st century, it appears that the accessibility and size of our gardens are shrinking. Between 1982 and 2013, the average British garden shrunk from 168 m2 to 163.2 m2. It is also estimated that two million homes in Britain don’t have a garden, and by 2020 10.5% of all homes will not have a garden.
In order to utilise the green space to its full capacity, gardeners must be exploring different ways to cultivate their plants. Suttons Seeds, retailers of hanging baskets and other garden essentials, have looked at how people are coping with their smaller spaces.
