Top Tips from the Wild Life Trust on how to go chemical free in your garden

“Our top tip for going chemical free is to ensure your garden has as much variety as possible to ensure no one species will be able to gain control. The more complex and varied your garden is, the more resilient it becomes. In the end you’ll wonder why you ever needed chemicals in the first place”

Garden Trends Report 2019

Wyevale Garden Centres captures some in-depth insights with input from senior buyers and survey data from 27,000 British Gardeners, to uncover some important trends that are shaping the way we garden in 2019.

It is clear that social media has played a part in the development of some of these trends and a growing environmental awareness has effected the way we eat and garden.

A move away from chemical use is one of the strongest trends. Consumers are rejecting the chemical compounds that have been staples of gardening for decades.

Veganism is one of the fastest growing lifestyle movements of the moment and vegan gardening is the new buzz word for 2019. Vegan gardening means using no horse manure, no blood, fish and bone fertilisers and being respectful of wildlife. As demand grows for Vegan aisles at the garden centre, we hope that Garden Centres will make a conscious effort to increase their organic and vegan ranges.
