With Spring now in full swing, what better way to celebrate than the joyous activity of gardening. It’s a favourite pastime for many, offering a glorious excuse to spend hours outside in the wonderful sunshine we typically experience this time of year. What’s more, lots of people living with health conditions which impact their well-being are likely to feel the surge of joy and positivity when connecting with nature. 

 

What is National Gardening Week? 

Launched back in 2012, this event has slowly become the source for thousands of people who want to share their love for all things gardening. There’s loads of events around the country, and participants are actively encouraged to use the power of social media to generate even more hype throughout the entire week. 

It’s an amazing event which brings the many benefits which gardening can provide. This can also help encourage the next generation of gardeners to come forward and keep the positive nature of this activity in the forefront for many more years to come.

This years’ theme is ‘The Joy of Gardening’, which was inspired by the new RHS Community Gardens. The aim is to help people create communal spaces where families and organisations can discover the joys of gardening. 

Events for this year’s National Gardening Week take place at the following RHS Gardens:

 

Benefits of Gardening

Gardening is a great way to escape from the troubles of certain health conditions. Below are just some of the reasons many people turn to gardening when things start to become particularly difficult.  

Well-Being Boost

With the activity of gardening taking place outside, you’ll have ample opportunity to soak up lots of Vitamin E when the sun is particularly radiant, which should give you a massive boost. 

Sense of Pride & Purpose 

Having a consistent routine is great for people who may struggle to get out of their home, and through gardening, you’ll have something which can form the basis of meaningful structure each day. It’s also something you can feel immensely proud of when plants start bursting into life and you finally see the full potential of your garden design realised. 

Getting Social 

When living at home, even if you have the benefit of live-in care, you still may desire socialising within your community. In this respect, gardens can also play a huge role, since this can become a great communal space in which friends and family can be welcomed.
