This year’s National Gardening Week runs from 11th to 17th April and it promises to be the country’s biggest celebration of gardens, organised by the Royal Horticultural Society.
This year’s theme is ‘get fit in the garden’, highlighting the ways in which gardens can enhance our mental and physical well-being. The RHS Gardens Wisley will be looking at ways to show how everyday activities such as digging, raking and hoeing can keep you fit, and how the garden can be used for exercise and having fun.
Thousands of people, public gardens, charities, shops and heritage organisations are getting involved and have plenty of events and activities taking place up and down the country. There are beginner’s workshops, walking guides, garden parties, planting groups and grow your own sessions – so there’s something for everyone.
It’s a great opportunity to get out in the garden, embrace the great outdoors and start sowing and planting seeds, flowers, trees, plants, herbs, vegetables and fruits.
With the lovely sunshine predicted to stay for a few weeks, now is a great time to start growing your own so have a look at our product range on the website for planting inspiration. How about planting seeds for peas and sunflowers with the little ones, or tomatoes, beans and peppers for delicious, fresh Spring recipes!
