COVID-19 pandemic spurs surge in gardening activity
When the going gets tough, the tough get growing. Anxiety surrounding COVID-19 and the often-bare shelves at grocery stores has prompted many Oregonians to pick up a trowel and put down some seeds. “Fortunately, gardening is one of those hobbies that doesn’t need to be put on hold — warm weather is coming and people can garden while following all the social distancing practices,” a spokesperson for the Oregon Association of Nurseries wrote in an email to KOIN-TV. That has meant extra business for some nurseries and seed companies.
