Helping you grow your way to a healthier you in lockdown and beyond - Enter our competition for the chance to win a one-year subscription to BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine.
Many of us have been taking advantage of the warm weather in lockdown by spending more time in our gardens connecting to nature and creating a peaceful haven to enjoy with the family. In May, garden centres were granted permission to reopen to the public and since then, gardening has become a fond hobby and somewhat of a lifeline in these challenging times.
In a recent poll conducted by the Royal Horticultural Society, 6 in 10 participants said they now value their gardens more than they did before lockdown. Other studies have shown that just looking at plants can relieve feelings of stress, meaning people with just a window box or a balcony can benefit too!
Gardening activities including weeding and mowing the lawn are both great forms of exercise, working the arms, thighs and upper back. You’ll also be thrilled to learn that the number of calories burnt from 30 minutes of gardening is equivalent to playing volleyball, tennis or practising yoga.
