To help these new green advocates and garden lovers, we analysed the UK’s 25 largest cities by population figures, to determine the most ‘gardener-friendly’ locations for renters, and their newfound gardening skills. The analysis used several criteria points to score each of the cities against which we then used to work out an overall rank for each city.

Our research reveals that Wolverhampton is the UK’s most gardener friendly city for renters, performing well across all areas, particularly for the number of garden centres and open fields per 100,000 of their population.
Newport and Manchester made up the rest of the top three ‘gardener friendly’ cities in the UK for renters, coming in second and third place, respectively. Derby and Coventry came in close behind, ranking at fourth and fifth position.
Ranking factors include percentage of available rentals with a garden, terrace or balcony, and the number of allotments, garden centres and parks or fields per 100,000 people in the populations.
Our methodology involved analysing existing data and reputable sources.
