Gardening is a national pastime, whether it is tending our own, visiting a local park or one of the many grand gardens the country is fortunate to have, the British seem to be garden mad! Our love of gardening goes back centuries, although at one time it was more the preserve of the well healed!
A World of Gardening
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) was established back in 1804 and now has over 400,000 members. It the world’s largest horticultural charity and of course organises the most famous garden show in the world, Chelsea. Other shows are held around the country through the year.
Gardens of course come of course in all shapes and sizes, from container gardening on a balcony to grand gardens of country houses. They can be modern or traditional, intended purely for leisure or they can be expected to pay their way with fruit and vegetables.
Gardening is good for you. Relaxing in the garden is good way to recover from a stressful week at work. It is good exercise. Unlike an hour or two at the gym; after a few hours in the garden, as well as being fitter, you’ll have something to admire!
The National Trust has hundreds of gardens. The RHS has four at present, a fifth on the way. RHS membership also gives you free access to many partner gardens. Over 3,000 private gardens open for charity under the National garden Scheme.
