The National Garden Bureau (NGB) is conducting a consumer survey on the future of gardening. It asks gardeners a variety of questions about how they garden, what they enjoy about it, what they don’t enjoy, what challenges they would like the plant material of the future to address, and how they see gardening — both indoors and out — evolving in the coming years.

The survey can be accessed here. Retailers are encouraged to share the link in their newsletters, so that customers will take the survey and add to the resulting data and the insights to be gained from it.

Founded in 1920 and based in Downers Grove, Illinois, the National Garden Bureau is a non-profit organization that disseminates basic information for backyard gardeners and those who want to garden. The goal is to inspire them to spend more time outdoors, enjoying all that nature has to offer.
