National Gardening Week
UK | Free
National Gardening Week is the nation’s biggest celebration of gardening and raises awareness of the difference that gardens and gardening can make to the lives of everyone in the UK. It inspires more people, particularly the next generation of gardeners, to experience the joy of growing and creating beautiful green spaces.
Members of the public are invited to hold events themselves to celebrate the week, for example, open gardens, local street and park tidy-ups and garden parties. The RHS encourages people to share their events and stories on social media to raise awareness of this popular annual event.
The RHS offers a comprehensive list of project ideas that can be taken up during National Gardening week, from wildlife ideas such as hedgehog, bird and bee habitats, to creating stone walls and compost heaps, to planting wildlife friendly areas, new vegetable plots, containers, window boxes.
National Gardening Week is a great time for young families and new gardeners to get involved and learn about gardening, and a great time for more experienced gardeners to spring back into life and find new skills and inspiration.
