Bushy Business - Chris Stone Managing Director
Hello! We all need a bit of calm and tranquillity and, this issue, we’re focusing on why spending time in the garden helps improve well-being. There’s a lovely quote by Gwenn Fried, a horticulture therapist, who talks about the benefits. She said: “Growing something green, something real, something alive, is a hopeful thing to do.
So, take a look at our ideas and then head outside and enjoy some fresh air!

Plant your own stress relief!

There are several plants that provide relief from daily anxieties. Smelling sweetly-scented lavender can have a calming effect. Jasmine is also fragrant and contains beneficial antioxidants, perfect for a delicious tea. Chamomile is well known for its soothing properties in tea – and all these can be grown in your garden.
