With many of us spending more time at home, getting some fresh air and keeping our minds occupied in the current situation is so important.
So switch off from the news and take a break in your garden. Gardening is a great stress buster and it’s a good form of exercise too.
If you’re looking for ideas there are plenty of uplifting projects to get stuck into in your garden. Why not:
> Plant a tree
> Grow your own fruit & veg
> Create a wildlife-friendly garden
> Plant patio climbing roses
> Try growing some plants from seed
> Get the children into gardening
> Create an edible window box
Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres believes escaping into the garden is a great way to lift your spirits to soak in the beauty if the outdoors generally and our gardens.
She said: “In times like this nature and simple pleasures, like gardening, watching the birds and looking out for wildlife, seem all the more precious and a boost to body and spirit. If you need us we are here to help you get gardening and find some outdoor relaxation and exercise.”
She added: “If you are spending a little more time at home over the coming weeks, I hope that the weather is kind and you are able to enjoy your outside space.”
