With our garden centres back open and other retailers set to open soon, it’s starting to feel like there’s some light at the end of the lockdown tunnel. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the days are getting longer either! Last Thursday’s Open For Business round table provided insights, lessons and most importantly, a positive outlook for the horticultural industry. If you missed it, head to our webinar page to catch up!
For this week’s newsletter, I’ve chosen to look ahead to brighter times in both the horticultural and pet industries. Discover the trends that our pets will be enjoying this year and beyond, or get planning in the garden with our guide to growing this month.
In the spirit of community, we’re also being treated to stories from not one, but two, of our show partners. Laura Hillier, the editor at Grow Your Own, shares her gardening hacks and how she’s been coping during the lockdown. Meanwhile, Annabelle Padwick of Life at No.27 has shared five of her favourite activities and tips as we enter National Growing for Wellbeing Week.
As always, we love hearing from you so please keep sending us your stories of kindness and words of advice and positivity for the Glee community.
