Sales of edible plants and seeds have been at a record high so far in 2022, according to the gardening centers. The grow-it-yourself trend in Norway looks set to continue.

“We see a clear trend where garden owners aim to become more self-sufficient in food. In the last two years, sales of seeds for edible plants have increased by as much as 51%,” managing director Øyvind Krohn in Hageland told the newspaper Nationen.

The sale of local and native plant species has also increased by around 10%.

Krohn says that sales of grow-your-own products such as seeds and plants increased sharply during the pandemic. 

A survey carried out by Plantasjen shows that nearly one in two Norwegians already grows edible plants and that the trend is growing.
