TV Gardener David Domoney on growing own fruit and veg

In recent weeks we have all seen news about the challenges at supermarkets, rations and scarcity of foods we all know and love. But this bad news doesn’t have to be the end of the story – in fact, many of us could be growing our own at home and reaping all of the benefits we sow.

That’s certainly what TV gardener – David Domoney – thinks. He is encouraging the nation to use this period to test our ‘sowing and growing’ habits as the salad shortage points to a skills shortage that could really be helping us.

According to a new report, it seems that in the UK we do need a bit of a spruce on these skills or our confidence. The data, from British family business Mr Fothergills who make seeds, shows that most of us (77%) are interested in gardening – but think we have barriers in the way.
