Mood boost­ing gar­den

Gardeners' World - - On The Cover -

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.

Get Christ­mas tree envy by vis­it­ing Wake­hurst Place, West Sus­sex, where the tallest liv­ing Christ­mas tree stands – it is 36m tall and dec­o­rated with 1,800 LED light bulbs.
