Everybody seems strapped for cash at the moment and it feels like we’re all giving up wild nights out for a bottle of cheap white wine and cosy DVD nights on the sofa. But luckily for us gardening is still affordable – the only pastime where the cost of doing the activity hasn’t risen more quickly than inflation. According to a study by the Halifax bank ten out of 11 activities studied, including going to the gym, watching Premier League football and visiting the cinema rose by over forty per cent in the last decade. In contrast the monthly cost of gardening had risen by just seventeen per cent.
We’re interested to know how much our readers are spending on gardening per month. Tell us by filling out the poll below!
