Joe Gardener Podcast Interviews NGA about the National Gardening Survey

Posted by @dave on
Each year since 1973, the Texas-based National Gardening Association works with professional pollsters to conduct the National Gardening Survey, which offers valuable insights into the mindset of gardeners across the United States. To help break the data down to better understand what gardeners think, Joe's guest this week is National Gardening Association Executive Director Dave Whitinger.

The Joe Gardener podcast is devoted to all things gardening. National gardening television host, Joe Lamp'l, guides the listener through each episode with practical tips and information to help you become a better, smarter gardener, no matter where you are on your journey. This series has a strong emphasis on organic gardening and growing food, but covers a diverse range of topics from one of the country's most informed and leading gardening personalities today.

The National Gardening Survey is 50 questions and covers a wide variety of gardening and lawn care topics, from houseplants and flowers to controlling insects and choosing plants that benefit wildlife. Last year and again this year, the survey included a number of questions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, with some surprising results. The association's quadrennial What Gardeners Think Survey was also conducted in 2021, revealing even more details on gardening trends and the outlook for the future.

The 2021 National Gardening Survey notes that interest in gardening is expected to remain strong in 2021, but as the nation emerges from the pandemic, "there are clouds on the gardening horizon."
