National Gardening Week was launched by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in 2011 to celebrate gardening and for gardeners to share their passion. You can get involved by doing something at home or by visiting an event organised by the RHS.

RHS events. There are several events organised by the RHS at their gardens. The most local to Yateley being Wisley Gardens in Surrey, where they will be providing advice and ideas to inspire gardeners. National Gardening Week at RHS Wisley

Gardening for wildlife. Why not use National Gardening Week as a time you do a little extra to help wildlife in your garden? This could be as simple as leaving an area wild or as involved as building a new pond. If you don’t have a garden you could plant some flowers in a window box to provide nectar for pollinators. We touched on gardening for wildlife in a previous blog post (October2017) and the National Gardening Week website contains additional information on things you can do in your garden for your own pleasure and for the benefit of wildlife; from building a bee hotel to planting a green roof.
