The Co-operative Magazine poll reveals 50/50 split on growing veg October 18 2011.
This month The Co-operative Magazine asked its readers: “Have you ever tried growing your own vegetables?” And the results are in. More than half (55.4 per cent) of respondents answered yes, 18.9 per cent answered no, and 25.7 per cent said no but they would like to.
The results of The Co-operative Magazine’s latest poll show that more than half of those asked have tried to grow their own vegetables and therefore are aiming at becoming increasingly self-sufficient. It also showed that while a significant percentage of people have never tried to grow their own vegetables, of these more than half would like to in the future.
With delicious autumn recipes, ideas for cooking seasonal food and bags of nutrition advice available online as part of the Magazine, readers can get lots of help with how to use any vegetables they do grow.
