National Gardening Week offers a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the simple joys of gardening and to promote an activity that is good for both mind and body!

Gardening, whether it be on country acres, a suburban block or a high-rise balcony, can be a refuge from your day-to-day worries, a haven to lose one’s self and a pastime to find peace with nature.

In 2022, we also celebrated Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee and to mark the occasion, the Queens Green Canopy initiative or “treebilee”, was launched.
