    Thought provoking report from the King’s Fund, published just ahead of the Chelsea Flower Show, calls for greater integration of gardening as a treatment in the health and social care system.

    Sarah Waller CBE, says: “Gardens can be so important to us particularly at difficult and painful times in our lives …”

    What do you think – do you find it helpful to visit a garden, or perhaps to retreat to your own garden and lose yourself in some tasks on difficult days?

    I’d love to read this! I looked at the title of the post and I was excited to read. Nature itself is a therapy.  Just being around places with no concrete and just trees and mountains with the smell of the earth calms me down
