Happy Wednesday! This week’s guide is all about a much loved activity that is entirely new to me, gardening. So in the interests of absolute transparency, other than signing off, I will make no further contribution to the content of this post. I may, however, be persuaded to share a pic of my first ever seed trays later. For now, I’ll hand over to Hollie and Suzie.
Whether you’re gardening with your partner, children or on your own, the sense of accomplishment afterwards is huge. Not only does it reduce stress, it allows you to get out in the fresh air and stay active.
Spring is a great time to start planting seeds in time for a summer bloom. Whether you have a garden, a balcony or the space to do some indoor home growing, we’ve hand-picked the best products for you to use.
For ‘world class flower bulbs’ look no further than Farmer Gracy. With the UK’s largest selection of flower bulbs online (and lots of care and planting advice), adding some colour and life to your garden has never been easier. Simply choose your blooms, add to basket and they will be delivered straight to your doorstep.
If you are interested in growing your own fruit and vegetables, Thompson & Morgan is a great place to start. The variety of seeds on offer is endless, from sweetcorn and runner beans to melon and rhubarb.
If you only have a small space to work with, like your window sill for example, you can still have fun with your gardening and growing. The selection of small scale propagators from Gardening Naturally will provide you with everything you need to get started.
If gardening simply isn’t for you, Mud Urban flowers has a range of gorgeous dried flowers that will keep your home full of colour until the end of lockdown. With new collections being released every week, you will never run out of options.
Finally, no matter your level of expertise, for the best gardening tips, advice and tutorials visit sarahraven.com. You will also find some great kits and tools on here too!
Far too many seeds in some of my pots and no sign of life in others, but how exciting to see the first green shoots!
As always, please get in touch to tell us what you would like to see in the weekly wellness guides – we love hearing from you all.
Take care and happy planting,
