In this two-minute read, we look at why doing a spot of gardening is good for your health and potentially your wealth.
Alongside home baking, videoconferencing, and hair clippers, the popularity of the Great British outdoors has rocketed since the lockdown began. Garden centres have reopened across the country following social distancing advice and many are doing a roaring trade. And with all that lockdown time on our hands many of us have discovered we’ve got green fingers and have taken to gardening to stave off the boredom. It's the perfect time to get outside and work up a sweat.
It’s also a wise move for your health and home. Here’s why...
If you don’t have a garden but would like to try the pastime Google ‘allotments near me’ and see what’s available. Or if you live in an apartment, you can always start a ‘window garden.’ Pop your plant pots on a windowsill that gets direct sunlight and away you go, with a little of research of course.
We’d love to see the lockdown handiwork you’ve been doing in your garden. Please share your photos with us and tell us what’s your favourite thing in your garden.
Thanks for reading, stay sensible, and we’ll get through this together.
