National Gardening Week
This unique celebration of gardening will be held 2nd – 8th May, 2022.
What happened for National Gardening Week 2021?
Throughout 2020 and into 2021, many of us relied on our gardens and green spaces more than ever, rediscovering the importance of connecting with nature for our mental and physical wellbeing. That’s why, for National Gardening Week 2021, we celebrated the feel-good power of plants and gardens, highlighting the scientific links between gardening and wellbeing. We also shared lots of advice on how to get your daily dose of Vitamin G.
“Vitamin G is ‘green’, and research has shown that getting a daily dose improves our sense of personal wellbeing,” explained RHS Director of Science, Professor Alistair Griffiths.
“Aim to bring green into your daily life as much as possible for maximum benefits. There are dozens of ways to connect with nature, and you don’t even need to have your own garden to get your Vitamin G.” – RHS Director of Science, Professor Alistair Griffiths
