18 Apr

It’s National Gardening Week!

It’s the last day of RHS’s  national gardening week and time to get more involved with gardening! This week aims to show Britons the benefits of getting out in the garden!

Celebrate the fantastic weather by getting out of the house to either to transform your local community or focus on your own garden.

Throughout national gardening week there will be top gardening tips from experts, helpful horticultural career advice, and a range of fun activities for families at each of the four RHS Gardens. Click here to find out more about specific events!

You can even organise your own local events including plant swaps, free garden tours, workshops and wildflower planting, these are just some of the events being organised up and down the country by private gardens, allotment societies, nurseries, libraries and community groups, to get the nation growing.  If you’re passionate about gardening but can’t make the pre-planned events, make your own!

There’s lots of information on planting for wildlife, which grows ever more important every year. During National Gardening Week and beyond the RHS is encouraging all gardeners to do all they can to support wildlife. By planting a broad diversity of plants gardeners can do a lot to encourage pollinating insects which, in turn, will bring in other forms of wildlife into their gardens such as birds and hedgehogs.
