The National Garden Scheme’s annual Gardens & Health Week is dedicated to promoting the positive impact gardens can have on physical and mental health.
Gardens & Health Week 2021 ran from 7th – 16th May. Discover more about how gardens and gardening can be a path to a healthier lifestyle.
Our report on the vital role that gardens and outdoor spaces played – and continue to play – in the physical and mental health and wellbeing of the nation during lockdown, brings together feedback from garden owners, viewers of their unique Virtual Garden Visits that aired throughout lockdown, and an online survey conducted in August. The report confirms that the power of gardens to do good has never been more important.
