More Summer Houses Articles While many may see their garden as a place for relaxation and recreation, a new survey has shown that some Brits have found another use for their yard.
Horticulture Week recently reported on a study by vouchercodes.co.uk, which revealed that eight per cent of UK residents have gotten down and dirty in the garden with a partner.
It appears that the friskiest Brits reside in Gloucester, with 28 per cent having indulged in alfresco shenanigans, while residents in Belfast, Worcester, Brighton and Leicester were not far behind.
However, with 22 per cent of respondents reporting that they plan to do some actual work in their green space this year, garden centres may be breathing a sigh of relief.
The most keen to improve are those from Bristol, who plan to spend an average of £149.80 each - higher than the UK average of £102.30.
Meanwhile, Horticulture Week recently reported that the Winchester Growers' Dahlia exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show was well received and won an award.
