National Gardening Week

National Gardening Week

It’s here! National Gardening Week has arrived once again, so what are you up to this week?

It’s the ideal time to get outdoors and start planting your annually-blooming flowers. We’re talking Sunflowers, Poppies, Pansies, Bizzie Lizzies, Marigolds, Zinnias and Begonias! They’ll brighten up your garden and, even if it’s not the hottest day ever, make it seem a little less gloomy than it is.

Today is a lovely day here at the G2U HQ; sun is out… sort of… not a cloud in sight! Unless you look out the window… No! It’s quite a nice day, enough to get outside anyway. We might even plant our Stripy Giant Sunflowers today that we gave away for FREE a few weeks ago. Have any of you sown yours yet? How are you getting on?

One thing a lot of people forget is that Gardening is not just a hobby, not just something you do if there’s nothing on the telly. It doesn’t just make your garden look a little bit nicer and a little bit brighter. It is fantastic for the environment too! Plants are part of a huge ecosystem which includes bugs, birds, more plants and even us humans. Without plants we could literally not survive, so get outside and save the world! Okay, it’s not quite that dramatic, but studies do suggest that marine greenery produces up to 70% or the worlds oxygen, the rest created by land plants.

So how can you help?

Well, just by planting a few species of flower in your garden, whatever they might be, you can help keep things healthy. Not only that, but you’ll also have found yourself a new hobby each year, and each evening when you’re outside watering and weeding. Gardening is relaxing, it’s good for the soul.

So! If you don’t want to get into your garden and sort out that Winter’s mess now… when will you?!

See you outside!
