How much do you spend on plants for your garden?

While gardens are still looking brown and shabby in March, the days are getting longer, bulbs are poking through the soil and Brits are starting to think about their summer gardens. How much will most people spend to update and maintain the colours, shapes and scents with new plants, flowers, insecticides and more?

Average Garden Spending

According to our analysis of data from the Office for National Statistics, the average UK household spends £187 a year on plants, flowers, seeds, fertilisers, insecticides and decorations for their gardens.

But how much do you plan to spend this year to bring your garden to life? And are you curious about how your garden spending stacks up against other people's?

Submit your answer in the poll below, then you'll be able to tell how your anticipated spending compares.

With inflation and other household finance pressures, we also want to get an idea of how spending on gardens is changing this year. Some people might spend less because they need the money for other critical household budget items like energy and food. But some households might spend more, for instance to make their home an oasis in place of taking a more expensive holiday. Tell us if you're spending more or less.

Please feel free to leave more information in our comments section below about how you're thinking about your garden spending this year.

And check back in a few days to see the results as it will take a little time for more data to come in!
