Northerners Love Gardening The Most

Brits went green-fingered over lockdown with Christow seeing a 262% rise in demand for our garden products from January to April 2021 compared to the previous year.

Using sales data in relation to town and city population sizes, we can reveal the locations with the highest number of garden enthusiasts in the country. Walsall in the West Midlands has the most green-fingered inhabitants, followed by Harrogate, Newcastle-under-Lyme, and Doncaster.

Northern British locations dominated the top ten with Harrogate, Doncaster, Chesterfield, Stockport, Preston, and Perth included in the list. More available green space and affordable homes with gardens are likely to contribute to the cause for more garden enthusiasts in these areas.

Areas with a high percentage of inhabitants living in flats featured heavily at the bottom of the list as urban centres leave little green space for residents to enjoy gardening. London, Belfast, Derry, and Hull were all included in the bottom 10.
