In 2018, we predict, based on extensive research, that the garden will be a both a haven and a laboratory as gardeners seek a respite from a stressful world, and also dive into the flood of new plant choices they’re seeing in garden centers and on social media.
According to a National Gardening Survey, more than six million people nationwide took up gardening last year (millennials–ages 18 to 34–accounting for 80 percent of that total). We’re watching this dynamic play out in unequaled demand for unique, sustainable, and social share-worthy plants and for gardening to be a differentiator of sorts.
As sensitivity about how we impact our habitat increases, and old plants become new friends, we’re changing not only what we garden, but how we garden. It looks like an interesting year!
