The words ‘national gardening week’ spark so much excitement and ideas in my mind. National days have somewhat become a novelty, It is always national something. National flower day, national spinach day, and something totally un-gardening related national puppy day! Therefore as a gardener I welcome this national event with open arms. A celebration of everything that I love and adore, gardening!
National Gardening Week is taking place 13th- 19th April 2015 and is one of the country’s biggest celebrations of gardening. Along with thousands of people, charities and retailers, I will be getting involved this year by getting out into the garden and finally making a start on my dream garden. This time last year I was a beginner a gardener, to be totally honest with you I still am! However, one of the joys of working at Thompson & Morgan is that I have learnt so much in a short period of time. I pick up tips on our social media pages, and other blogs we receive from customers and gardening experts. So hopefully, it will come into use this year.
Are you getting involved this year? There are so many events for you to go along to and not only will you have fun, but you will be sure to pick up some useful information too. Why not join the team at RHS Wisely? They will be holding numerous events, talks and demonstrations to celebrate national gardening week.
You don’t always need to go the distance to take part and it doesn’t always need to involve breaking the bank. Why not hold a garden tea party for your friends and family and let them come to you and enjoy your beautiful garden displays. Or make it your mission to get your children outside and into the garden by planting their very first sunflower? The choice is endless!
