Dig for Victory

Home » News » Dig for Victory

During World War 2 people were encouraged to dig up their gardens to plant food. The campaign slogan 'Dig for Victory' was introduced in 1940 by a London Evening Newspaper. Many leaflets were produced that gave advice on various aspects of gardening.
Information was also given on the radio — a play called 'Digging for Victory' was aired. The main character started out knowing nothing about gardening but ended up giving advice to the local horticultural society.
