TRADITIONAL British gardening skills could be in danger because younger generations cannot tell a tulip from a geranium.

年轻一代分不清郁金香和天竺葵,英国传统的园艺技能处境危险。

The knowledge of young adults is so poor that one in three do not even know what a garden hoe looks like, says a survey. And they are certainly not green fingered. One in four admitted that when they had tried to grow plants they had died within weeks. And six in 10 said their garden was in dire need of attention.

一项调查称,年轻人知识匮乏,有三分之一的人甚至不知道花锄是什么样子的。他们自然没有园艺才能。四分之一的人承认他们曾试图去种植植物,然而这些植物总是在几周之内就死掉了。五分之三的人说他们的花园急需关注。

The survey of 2,000 25 to 35-year-olds discovered that 87 per cent could not identify a photo of a geranium and more than three in four could not spot a tulip. A picture of fragrant jasmine stumped three quarters of respondents and nearly six in 10 could not identify a fuchsia. Half did not know a dandelion was a weed.

这项针对2000名25到35岁年轻人的调查发现,87%的人无法辨认出天竺葵的照片,超过四分之三的人认不出郁金香。一张芬芳茉莉花的图片则难倒了四分之三的调查对象,近五分之三的人认不出吊钟海棠。有一半的人不知道蒲公英是一种草。

But at least the interviewees were realistic, with 55 per cent admitting their gardening skills and knowledge were poor.

但至少这些被访问者都实事求是,55%的人承认他们的园艺技能和知识都十分匮乏。

The most hated gardening jobs were weeding, deadheading, mowing the lawn, pruning and digging flowerbeds. Half said they did not enjoy gardening, mainly because they felt “clueless”. They reckoned that they would not get the hang of gardening until they were 40 years old.

最令人痛恨的园艺工作便是除草、摘除枯花、修剪草坪、剪枝和给花圃松土。有一半人说他们并不享受园艺的乐趣,主要是他们会感到“茫然无绪”。他们认为自己到了四十多岁的时候,才能得知园艺的窍门。

To try to combat the knowledge gap Origin has created a series of “how to” videos.

为设法弥补知识缺口,Origin创造了一系列“如何做”视频。

Origin director Ben Brocklesby, said: “The research has revealed how the millennial generation is struggling to grow a basic pot plant and, in some cases, can’t tell a weed from a flower. It’s important we don’t lose the connection and passion for our outdoor spaces.

Origin的主管本?布洛克莱斯比说:“调查显示千禧年一代的80后们如何艰难地种植基本盆栽植物,并且有时候,他们分不清杂草和花。对于户外空间,不失与其联系,不失对其热情,是极为重要的。

“A lack of enjoyment in maintaining a garden usually comes from people not knowing where to start.

“打理花园缺乏乐趣,常常来自于人们不知道从哪里开始。

“Even growing plants in small spaces, such as a window box, can be fun and productive — you just need a little sunshine and some imagination.”

“即使是在像窗槛花箱这样小小的空间里种植植物,也是有趣且有成效的——你只需要一点阳光和一些想象力。”
