Dueban - As hard times continue to bite, more and more cash-strapped people are growing their own vegetables to save money, says gardening guru Tanya Visser.
“An increasing number of people are saying they want to give growing veggies a bash,” said Visser in Durban yeson Thursdayterday, adding that it was something she had encouraged for years.
Visser, who certainly knows her onions when it comes to gardening, is the editor of The Gardener magazine and has appeared on gardening TV shows, passing on advice and seasonal tips.
Visser and the magazine have a pop-up shop at the ECR House and Garden Show at the Durban Exhibition Centre, which runs until Sunday, where she has seen countless visitors buying seedlings to grow their own vegetables.
They are also buying boxes of vegetables for balconies, courtyards and small homes, making the most of what space they have.
