Gardening is good for you #gigfy!

Gardening is good for you! 

It is frequently highlighted in the media how good being outdoors and in the garden is for our mental and physical wellbeing. Getting closer to nature and seeing our plants grow and develop is extremely nurturing and has many health benefits. July is the month where we get to spend a lot of time outdoors due to the good summer weather, and to appreciate the hard work we have put into our outdoor space however small or large. Whether pottering amongst your pots, harvesting from the vegetable patch, or relaxing on a lounger admiring our perfectly manicured lawns - in the garden is the place to be to elevate our mood and get a general feeling of wellbeing.

Even if you do not have an outdoor space, you can bring the outdoors inside with houseplants. Removing toxins from the air we breath, adding to the aesthetic design of our home and garden, speeding up recovery after illness are all plus points of getting green fingered. Indulge in our luxury garden furniture to make the most of your time outside, choose scrumptious food from the Pantry for your BBQ with friends or summer al fresco dining and select from out superb quality home grown plants to maximise your garden enjoyment. With so many plants currently in bloom in the garden centre, purchasing and planting right now can add maximum impact to your garden space!
