A few months ago, there was a running joke in Rebecca Purvis's family that she couldn't even keep a hardy yucca plant alive.
Now the 43-year-old has a flourishing vegetable garden in Melbourne's western suburbs.
"It doesn't have to be expensive, is what I've learned. And you don't have to be a good gardener," says Rebecca, an occupational therapist and business owner.
She's one of many Australians using their time at home to grow vegetables — some for the very first time.
