National Gardening Week 2021

April 26th 2021

As the UK has come to appreciate and rely on its gardens and green spaces more than ever over the last year, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is encouraging the nation to celebrate the ‘feel-good power’ of gardens for National Gardening Week 2021.

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. “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.

Throughout the week, the RHS will be posting inspirational ideas on its social media channels to show how easy it is to get a dose of Vitamin G. The public can join in by posting what they are doing to feel good in the garden on social media channels using the hashtag: #NationalGardeningWeek

26 April – 2 May 2021
