Trend number 7, “Info Lust” and number 8, “Quick and Simple,” seem to be contradictory. On the one hand people are looking for more and more information about gardening, outdoor decorating and cooking. Classes are filled with people wanting to learn to be better gardeners, better cooks, better at landscape design. Garden magazines are wildly popular, and the internet buzzes with questions and answers between friends as well as from garden experts.
But, on the other hand, people are trying to save time in the garden, by planting in smaller spaces and even containers.
This all leads me to believe that there are as many styles of gardening as there are gardeners. Some want to get back to nature, learn how to be more in touch with the earth, while others want the results of gardening (whether fresh veggies or the colorful plants) without too much work.
