"When I am out in the front garden people stop and have a chat, otherwise I don’t bother to go out."
The seasonal guide gives an idea for one simple gardening activity that can be started in each month of the year. These straightforward activities are a good way to get into gardening or get back into gardening to support your rehabilitation and recovery.
Each activity can be undertaken regardless of whether you have just a window sill, patio, conservatory or garden. The activities cover flower, vegetable and herb growing.
Choose just one activity and follow it through or start a new activity each month and see how much you can do.
