Wenborn......can't get the link unfortunately.
I fully agree that you can enjoy gardening whether you have a balcony or an acre. It was your terminology which threw me. The reasons you offer are valid enough but I fail to see what "products" would give people more space, time or inclination. Long working hours, busy lives and absences from home are really nothing new but concentrated housing and lack of space is a becoming a serious problem.
Community gardening and Allotments offer some solutions but not everyone is able to access these facilities. There are numerous Gardening Magazines and TV programmes which are basic enough for young gardeners if they are interested enough to read/watch.
Sorry if I am coming across as a Grumpy old git.........I'm not really but just wondering how your survey/project is going to alter the status quo. I am more than happy to be proved wrong tho and wish you all the best with your project.
