No time to garden, say many Britons
More than one in ten Britons say they have no time to garden, according to new findings.?The survey was commissioned by Poundland to launch its ?In The Garden with Charlie Dimmock? range.
Boiling the figures down,? the survey found that despite a quarter claiming to love spending time in their garden, one in five said don’t have the time for it, while nearly a quarter don’t know where to start.
Speaking of the finding, Charlie Dimmock said: “I am quite surprised that so many people feel that gardening isn?t for them without giving it a try.? Gardening doesn?t need to be complicated or overwhelming ? it can be made, affordable and accessible.
Jim McCarthy, CEO of Poundland said: ?Our customers have been telling us for some time that the cost and lack of experience can put them off gardening. ?In The Garden? with Charlie Dimmock? has been developed to help these customers, and Charlie?s involvement has been key to ensuring that we create a range by a gardener for gardeners.?
In The Garden with Charlie Dimmock consists of over 130 lines and includes hand tools, a hanging bird feeder, heavy duty gloves, a pressure sprayer and more.
