Gardens

If someone mentions a garden to you, your mind will probably be transformed into an area full of colour, perhaps with a fountain or maybe just an old mattress on broken paving slabs.

Whatever interpretation you may have of a garden we all know the word garden. Let us all imagine our best garden image and try and make it a reality and not just in the mind.

Plants are wonderful in so many ways. Some people's first introduction is through growing mustard and cress and you learn to appreciate plants in so many ways whether as a vehicle for purifying the air, as a food source, being great in the home environment or just a pleasurable educational experience.

We must all think of our own garden and bring plant life into this world, even if it is just a house plant in a pot, since it will transform you.
