I have just received my Gardeners’ World magazine and noticed an article about whether people prefer to grow flowers or vegetables, with Alan Titchmarsh and Carol Klein sponsoring their favourites. There seems to be a lot of surveys happening at the moment as I have also seen a Gardeners’ World awards which is a survey where gardeners can vote for their favourite plants and nurseries.
You can take part in the Gardeners’ World survery on their web site.
Personally I like to grow both vegetables and flowers and as you can see from the seeds that I am growing in March – I enjoy growing a wide variety of both. But if I had to chose then it would have to be vegetables because nothing compares to freshly home-grown vegetables and the sense of satisfaction which comes from cooking and eating quality vegetables.
