Home vegetable and fruit gardening participation has increased exponentially in the past decade. In 2011, U.S. households spent a total $29.1 billion on their lawns and gardens. A study conducted in 2008 projected that a family who gardens would get on average a 25-1 return on their investment.

With benefits like better food, saving money and spending time outdoors, it is no wonder more Americans are getting involved in growing their own produce. This infographic, brought to you by Avant Garden Decor, home of Gardener’s Blue Ribbon Vegetable Gardening Supplies, shares intriguing facts regarding home gardening popularity and when you should start your produce production this spring.
