Research cited by Morrisons has revealed that 47 per cent of households now only have access to a small balcony and 11 per cent have no garden area at all.
But demand for compact potted plants is up 10 per cent up year-on-year. Some 58 per cent of people to want to ‘grow their own’, Morrisons added.
T&M's Ketchup and Chips plant, a tomato and potato plant in one, can be grown in a large patio pot or 40 litre bag.
Morrisons gardens expert Glen Cooper said: "Many of our customers are green fingered. But over recent years we’ve witnessed the frustration of shoppers who have less and less space to grow their own. This new plant is just the solution for our shrinking gardens - and will enable everyone to follow their produce from plant pot to plate."
The Ketchup and Chips Plant is available in Morrisons 101 garden centres UK-wide from 25 April, for a limited time only and will cost £5. Also available during this time will be the Egg and Chips Plant, also costing £5.
