These Are 2021’s Top Garden Trends, According To Instagram

With lockdown making us crave green spaces more than ever before, it's no surprise that gardening has enjoyed a huge boom in popularity. A study published in August found that millennials have spent an average of £213 on their balcony, outdoor space or indoor garden during lockdown.

Whatever happens next, whether there's a nationwide second lockdown or not, our love of house plants and apartment gardening is here to stay. So it's definitely interesting to check out new research by the folks at Love the Garden, who analysed the most popular garden-related hashtags on Instagram with a view to predicting the biggest trends of 2021.

Get the right plants for your balcony and you can turn it into your very own little green oasis.

Even if you're lucky enough to have a garden, chances are that it's not exactly wild. Still, this is a fun hashtag to scroll through for plant ideas.

#insideoutside



This one's versatile – #insideoutside can mean super-fancy glass-roofed rooms and conservatories, or simply bringing a bit of the outdoors inside with plants and wild flowers.

Allotment lovers: this one's for you.

#permaculturegarden



It sounds fancy, but permaculture gardening – an abbreviation for "permanent agriculture" – simply means harnessing the power of natural forces like wind, sun and water rather than chemicals to make the most of your garden. You're probably doing it without even realising it.

#whitegarden



This one's as self-explanatory as it is pretty.

#windowsillgarden



If you don't have a balcony or outdoor space, this hashtag's the one to peruse for indoor gardening inspo.

#greygardens



This hashtag is probably trending in part due to the enduring popularity of cult documentary film Grey Gardens. Still, grey garden furniture is pretty chic, no?
