Garden shed owners could be among those adopting this season's garden trend for traditional features.

According to Thomas Hoblyn, spokesman for the Society of Garden Designers, this autumn and winter is all about retro, with key pieces from the 70s and 80s.

Wallflowers, often considered to be a 70s plant, are being used this year, noted Mr Hoblyn.

"I wonder if it is something to do with the recession and people are looking for a comfort plant," he said.

"There is definitely a retro feel about things. Chrysanthemums used to be considered really tacky, but now they are everywhere this winter."

A recent report from Mintel found that many UK gardeners are reverting to the trend of grow-your-own.

One in five consumers grow their own fruit and vegetables and waiting lists for allotments have grown 20 per cent this year.

However, people could opt instead for a greenhouse and garden shed to utilize their garden and create a vegetable patch.
