National Gardening Week – let’s grow a new generation of gardeners

National Gardening Week (Monday 26 April – Sunday 2 May) is here and this is your opportunity to transform your garden, a patio or a windowsill into a colourful, productive and wildlife friendly space.

The Royal Horticultural Society is urging us to get involved in gardening and ‘Get your dose of Vitamin G.’ “Vitamin G is ‘green’, and research has shown that getting a daily dose improves our sense of personal wellbeing,” explains RHS Director of Science, Professor Alistair Griffiths.
