The survey found that ninety-five per cent of people in the UK think that growing your own fruit and vegetables is a modern pastime.
Seventy per cent of the 3,100 people surveyed in the UK also said they preferred their own homegrown produce to the fruit and vegetables they buy in the supermarket.
Sixty per cent of people said that they would most like to grow their own strawberries, tomatoes (56 per cent) and herbs (44 per cent).
Bakker Spalding Garden Company managing director Adrian Nind said: "No longer content with ‘pick your own’, we are seeing more and more people turning their hands to growing their own fruit and vegetables. This has resulted in an increase in our sales of kitchen garden products over the past year. Healthy eating and living, and a new emphasis on sustainability are certainly behind the trend."
