The Royal HorticulturalSociety (RHS) is the prime mover in National Gardening Week and their theme this year is ‘Edible Britain’ based upon the love of home grown produce exemplified by legions of gardeners in all corners of the United Kingdom. With home grown produce one is in complete control of the entire growing process and it is the only way to be certain of the origin of one’s food, the result is fewer carbon miles, total certainty about organic cultivation and the use of pesticides, plus the taste is rich in comparison with shop bought produce.
National Gardening Week started eight years ago and last year saw hundreds of events taking place all around the Country with great interest and a lot of plant and information sharing.
This occasion aims to raise public awareness of the difference that gardening can make to people lives and to inspire people in a completely inclusive way to become gardeners and introduce new ideas, plants and innovation into the community where-ever there is a green space. Edible Britain aims to help people grow delicious and diverse produce for the table, anything from a single pot of kitchen herbs to an allotment or home garden overflowing with colourful vegetables and fruit – colour in vegetables and fruit means natural vitamins that help keep us healthy.Nb. Gardening is an excellent way to de-stress.
