Biophilic Design gardening

12. Benefits of gardening

I have talked about the benefits of gardening on my mental health before. I find a great therapy in checking the leaves, sinking my fingers in the soil. If it’s a good day the warm sun on my face and if it’s rainy it’s probably just a quick tidy.

It’s all about Biophilic harmony.

I am learning so much I now recognise flowers in peoples gardens, on the tv. It’s a knowledge I have always wanted. It’s fairly easy to learn especially when you live a flower. I don’t know all the Latin names or what family they come from but I am learning.

Gardening is constant learning. Tulips for example are pretty hardy, they need the cold in the ground to get growing, if you want long tall stems you have to make sure they get plenty of water.

If you don’t have a lot of time to invest in Your garden then you just need to invest in plants that and they are long flowering plants I have two, salvia hot lips, take care of themselves. Salvias need a little trim but I have just learned that they are a natural pesticide so I will be planting them near my roses to keep them free of black spot.

Learn your garden and you will reap the benefits. Shady, half sun, full sun, know your soil and add to it to improve it. A current trend in gardening is no dig, this means less work, less weeds and a greater yield. It’s a trend that does seem to be going away and I am here for it.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
