Mood boosting garden
A garden that changes with the seasons is better for your well-being than one that is predominantly evergreen, says Harriet Gross, Professor of Psychology at the University of Lincoln. The changing colours, rustling leaves and visiting wildlife can all benefit your health, she tells us. She also suggests boosting your mood with plants that flower in different months.
