Sunday 9 October is Garden Day – the day to celebrate your garden and all the hard work that you have put into making it so beautiful!

For the first time in South Africa there is an official day for gardeners alike to reap the rewards of their hard work and to relish in the beauty of their gardens. Garden Day is here to allow you to put your tools into the shed, relax and enjoy your planted paradise. Invite over family and friends and together you can revel in the beauty of your hard work and appreciate the sought after satisfaction and reward that gardening provides us.

Life is a Garden explains it all:

As a source of creativity, a space to reflect, an awakener of senses, a daily dose of therapy and healing, a place to stay grounded and find peace, a gateway to growth and prosperity, a space to appreciate nature and a foundation for the creation of beauty – gardening is so much more than just a hobby… it’s a lifestyle.

So for the not-so-green fingered, the avid horticulturist, the lover of nature, the patio people and those that just love getting their hands dirty, this day is for you to appreciate all the time and effort that goes into creating something unique and something that can bring so much pleasure!

So on this very first South African Garden Day reap the rewards of your weeding, planting, watering, digging, dead-heading and labouring, no matter how big or small your garden or plant box is, kick back and celebrate the beauty of gardening!

Visit the website for tips on what to do, what the day is all about and why gardening is so beneficial:

“Gardening is food for the soul. It makes us happy, connects us with nature and offers healing in the most natural of forms. By stepping into a garden you are walking into nature’s largest medicine cabinet” – Garden Day
