Great British Garden Revival
Thompson & Morgan is due to feature in a new BBC show that aims to reignite a passion for gardening by showing viewers how to fill their gardens with flowers, plants and trees. The Great British Garden Revival starts on Monday 9th December on BBC Two and the series of 10 hour-long programmes includes episodes on wild flowers, shrubberies, front gardens, cottage gardens, ornamental bedding and lots more. Filming took place at Thompson & Morgan’s trial grounds in Suffolk for the ‘bedding’ episode – we don’t yet know when it will be aired, but we’ll keep you posted.

Playing outside is really important

Project Wild Thing
According to recent research, children are very out of touch with nature, with many rarely going outside to play, even though many studies show that spending time outside increases their health, well-being and happiness. Project Wild Thing calls for everyone to ‘Swap screen time for wild time’ and get outdoors to reconnect with nature. If you’re stuck for ideas or pushed for time, an app is available to download to iOS and Android devices with loads of ideas, taking from mere minutes to hours and days – it’s up to you how much you do.
