The Green Revolution: How COVID-19 and Lockdowns have Increased Gardening in Europe

As Covid-19 lockdowns swept across Europe, people were forced to stay indoors, isolated from friends and family. To keep themselves occupied, many turned to gardening as a way to enjoy some time outside and bring some life to their homes. This trend towards gardening has only continued to grow in popularity, even as lockdowns have eased up.


According to a recent survey conducted by the European Landscape Contractors Association, the demand for gardening services increased by 20% in 2020. This is not only due to the increasing popularity of gardening but also the fact that people are spending more time at home and are willing to invest in their outdoor spaces.


Gardening is not only a great way to spend time outside, but it can also have a positive impact on mental health. Studies have shown that spending time in nature can reduce stress and anxiety, and can even help alleviate symptoms of depression. In fact, a study conducted by the Royal Horticultural Society found that gardening can have a positive impact on mental wellbeing, with 88% of participants reporting that gardening improved their mood.


Furthermore, gardening has proven to be a sustainable and eco-friendly way to produce fresh produce, reducing the need to purchase food from supermarkets that has been shipped long distances. This has led to a resurgence in interest in home vegetable gardening, with people growing their own produce in their gardens and on their balconies.


As a result, many companies have started to offer gardening products and services to meet this increasing demand. At NTCN-Export, we have expanded our offerings to include a wide range of garden decoration and planter options, as well as eco-friendly substrate, stone paving and sculptures. We are proud to be a part of this growing trend towards sustainable and eco-friendly gardening practices.


The rise of gardening in Europe during the Covid-19 pandemic has been a positive development, providing people with an outlet to relieve stress, improve mental health, and produce their own fresh produce in a sustainable way.
