More Garden Offices Articles Keen gardeners may increasingly look to set up garden offices or log cabins after new figures highlighted the growing popularity of indoor plants.
According to the British Retail Consortium, retail sales figures for the gardening sector in January 2011 showed gains against a weak, snow-hit January 2010, with indoor plants, bulbs and cut flowers among the popular items.
Commenting on the figures, Damian Cardozo, managing director of gardening firm Haxnicks, noted that sales have been boosted by the popularity of home-growing fruit and vegetables.
He suggested that people can do this even in limited spaces, but that they must ensure they take care of the plants.
"The biggest thing is just to keep on watering the plants because it is the easiest thing in the world to forget; you did it all, you set it all up and then you forget to water it," he said.
Mr Cardozo added: "If they don't have gardens then that is fine; they can use their patios, balconies or any space they have got available and just have a go at growing something."
