One positive thing about the recent lockdown and pandemic events, is that many people have ventured in to their gardens – got their hands in the soil for perhaps the first time, experienced the feeling of hope which seeds can bring and seen the rewards of their nurturing hard work.
Gardening has become a new grounding activity for many over the last six months and something that gives us positivity, purpose and accomplishment.
This may not be a surprise to some, considering that in times of crisis, our relatives also naturally resorted to the ground. Our bodies naturally need it!
But now with even more changes coming at us along with darker days, we need to remember that the garden is still there for us.

There is a misconception that come autumn, the garden begins to close until spring and there isn’t anything the garden can offer us during this time.
But, although the garden is relaxing, recovering and recharging itself for next spring, the colder, frosty days still have so much to give. Kicking crisp autumn leaves up in the air always gives me a smile and so do many other upcoming activities in the garden.
I wanted to share a few of my favourite pick-me-up winter gardening activities for you to perhaps try at home. These give me hope, excitement, as well as something to do during a cosy night indoors.
I hope this gives you a few ideas and encourages you to brave the cold and feel the wellbeing boost.
