Gardening is a past-time loved by many around the world. As well as providing exercise and boosting energy levels, gardening can have a multitude of additional benefits regardless of your age. Whether you have your own private garden or you have to make do with an allotment, get outdoors and start taking advantage of the mental and physical benefits offered to you by gardening.

Not to mention, April is National Garden Month, so get out there and start reaping the benefits
