Thrive has launched a new Gardening Club to improve health and wellbeing during lockdown.

It’s free to join and each week subscribers receive seasonal gardening advice as well as expert insights into how practical tasks can benefit them physically and mentally.

There are also activities for children to help them connect with nature and tips to make managing gardens easier for people with disabilities or long-term health conditions.

Other content includes gardening hacks and recycling ideas, guest contributors and other inspiration to keep people active whether they have gardens, balconies or window boxes.

We hope it will engage and equip people who may not have had much gardening experience previously and kindle an interest that will benefit them long after the coronavirus crisis is over.

Kathryn Rossiter, Thrive’s CEO, said: ‘Many people are rediscovering the value of their gardens during lockdown and this is reflected in the interest we’ve seen in our new Gardening Club.

‘We hope it will engage and equip people who may not have had much gardening experience previously and kindle an interest that will benefit them long after the coronavirus crisis is over.’
