A STUDY of 2,000 garden owners found almost a quarter of people from Yorkshire and The Humber haven’t made any changes to their garden in the past five years to make it sustainable, while 92 per cent have done for the inside of their home.

More than a third of people from Yorkshire and The Humber would like to see greener products for gardeners more widely available, while 17 per cent admitted they have no idea how to make their outdoor space more eco-friendly.

Sarah Dixon, from Hozelock, which commissioned the study to launch the EasyMix 2-in-1 Composter, said: “Sustainability is becoming increasingly important and while we often hear about the different ways to make changes in the home, the outdoors is often overlooked.

“There are many different ways gardens can be made greener, such as composting, adding pollinating flowers and plants, such as crocuses or lavender, growing your own fruit and veg and reducing the use of chemicals.

“Each small change can make a big difference and with spring and summer upon us there’s no better time to take up new habits outside.”
