This year has been a strange year. The lifting of restrictions after a lockdown and what some will hope will see a return to normality, the one thing that this pandemic has done is change how we view our gardens. Garden sheds, plants, and garden furniture all in high demand. We are making the most of the outdoor space we have available and diverting our funds from eating out to eating out in our gardens. Especially as during the initial lockdown easing, this is the only way we can socialise with some of our loved ones.
Summer is now fast approaching and with it the potential to spend time with our loved ones – finger’s crossed that we may have BBQs and garden parties on the agenda, and see the back of this horrendous pandemic, once and for all… It’s always best to think positive, so now is the perfect time to start preparing your garden for the summer.
2021 is set to be a year unlike any other (as was 2020). With the pressures (and boredom) of lockdown throughout the Winter months, we are all desperate for some nice weather so we can start enjoying our gardens once again. With such a rubbish 2020, it makes sense that we will want to make the most of our outdoor spaces this year. Hopefully, we can all start mixing with other households soon and, fingers crossed, host garden parties and barbecues by the summer!
Spring may still be a couple of months away, but with lockdown likely to be with us for a while (and many of us going stir crazy!), there’s no better time to start preparing your garden ready for the Vernal Equinox. So what will you need to do? Well, follow these 5 simple steps and you’ll have your garden looking great in no time at all!
2020 has been a strange year and I think it’s safe to say we’re all looking forward to seeing the back of it! Fingers crossed that 2021 is a much more positive, productive and prosperous year for everyone. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s not forget that we still have Christmas 2020 to get through!
I think we can all agree that 2020 has been a stressful year so far, and this looks set to continue over the coming months. Many of us (me included) have found much needed sanctuary in our gardens during this difficult time. Whether you like to spend your time gardening, playing football with the kids, or relaxing with a book, our garden offers us a haven to relax, unwind and forget about the stresses of the outside world.
Since the lockdown many people have become avid gardeners, and who can blame them? Gardening is fun, great exercise and fantastic for your mental health and wellbeing… And unlike other forms of exercise, you are also creating something that will look great and provide you with a comfortable space to relax in! So, if you’re one of the many people who have recently found solace in gardening, here’s some tips on how to extend your talents and create that perfect garden you’ve always dreamed of.
There’s no doubt about it. These are tough times for all of us… With the dreaded COVID-19 forcing us to self-isolate, our physical and mental health are being put under immense strain.

This is great, as it means we can all get some respite by going for a short walk, or by spending time in our garden. Connecting with nature is one of the best ways to reduce stress, but did you know that gardening is also a fantastic way to boost your mental health and wellbeing? It’s true… gardening is great medicine for the soul. Here’s 5 reasons why gardening could be the cure we all need during these uncertain times.
