Grow Your Own (Infographic)

It looks like the concept of "grow your own" is really picking up again in Britain.

Whether it's due to the wave of austerity sweeping the nation, allowing people to supplement purchased food and reduce their costs, or the  sheer satisfaction of being able to plant, grow, harvest and taste your own fruit and veg, grow your own is a most welcome change in the national psyche.

To illustrate this trend have commissioned Studio Leigh//Leigh to produce a Grow Your Own infographic, an abbreviated version you can see posted below.

Our favourite fact? The most common form of plant feed is organic, showing the concern of the nation's home growers for the drive to avoid modern synthetic pesticides and fertilisers.

And on that note, we're off to re-pot our chilli plants, water the strawberries and see how well our organic ginger is growing. Enjoy and click the image to see the full glory of the Grow Your Own infographic...
