National Gardening Week 2014
How have you been celebrating National Gardening Week 2014?
Launched by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), National Gardening Week is a time to celebrate everything green, and as with previous years, the 14th-20th April saw thousands of people across the UK getting out and about to share their passion for horticulture, and participating in events such as open gardens, garden parties, plant swaps and more.
National Gardening Week encourages people and organisations to come together to help keep their neighbourhoods, environments and shared spaces beautiful.
Projects ran up and down the country throughout last week aiming to strengthen community spirit, provide educational opportunities for children, and help many millions of people to live happy, healthy lives.
We’re sure you’ve heard Artificial Grass Direct share our love of all things gardens all year round, however National Gardening Week gives people the chance to get together and share their love for horticulture in events and celebrations.
Organisations and communities across the UK held events and celebrations in honour of the occasion. In RHS gardens, for instance, visitors were treated to a week of fun activities, demonstrations, and informative talks suitable for both children and adults.
Even if you have missed the celebrations during National Gardening Week, you can still show your appreciation for gardens and gardening simply by heading out into the fresh air and doing a bit of tidying in your own garden.
Never been the green-fingered type? Then why not take this opportunity to give gardening a go? You may just find that you dig up a new hobby that’s fun, healthy and good for the environment!
If you spent the majority of National Gardening Week behind your lawnmower trying to get your garden in order, then why not consider artificial grass?
Growing numbers of homeowners are now realising the endless benefits that artificial turf has to offer.
So give the nation’s landscape a nudge in the right direction, and ditch brown patchy grass in favour of a lush green garden!
