More than half of Swedish households produce edible plants 

Approximately 50 % of the households produce some kind of edible plant. About 75 % of households living in a detached house or on a farm property produce edible plants, while the corresponding figure for households living in an apartment is roughly 30%. The most common cultivation site for edible plants is a garden in connection to permanent housing, nearly 70 % of them producing edible plants do so in a garden at their permanent housing. About 25 % of households grow edible plants on a balcony or a patio, which is the second most common cultivation site.   

 

About 3 billon SEK were spent on plants and seeds

More than 60 % of households spent money on plants for leisure gardening during 2012. Households spent in total nearly 2.6 billion SEK on plants and 0.4 billion SEK on seeds during 2012. Non edible plants such as bulbs and bedding plants are included in the sum for plants.

45 % of households think home grown produce is better than bought

We asked the households in the survey to consider a number of statements about leisure gardening. The results show that about 45 % of households strongly agree with the statement that home grown produce is better than bought. Almost 60 % of households producing edible plants strongly agree as opposed to 35 % of households not growing edible plants.
