Enjoy the Simple Pleasures in Life

Gardening is a great way to relax and a good form of exercise


With many of us spending more time at home, getting some fresh air and keeping our minds occupied in the current situation is so important. So switch off from the news and take a break in your garden. Gardening is a great stress buster and it’s a good form of exercise too.

If you’re looking for ideas there are plenty of uplifting projects to get stuck into in your garden. Why not:

  • Plant a tree
  • Grow your own fruit & veg
  • Create a wildlife-friendly garden
  • Plant patio climbing roses
  • Try growing some plants from seed
  • Get the children into gardening
  • Create an edible window box
  • Have an early Spring BBQ


Sarah Squire, Chairman of Squire’s Garden Centres commented:

“We are all in need of something a little cheering right now. For me it is escaping into one of our outdoor plant areas and just soaking in the natural beauty of all those wonderful plants. In times like this nature and simple pleasures, like gardening, watching the birds and looking out for wildlife, seem all the more precious and a boost to body and spirit. If you need us we are here to help you get gardening and find some outdoor relaxation and exercise.

Our garden centres are open and we want to reassure you that our number one commitment is always the wellbeing of our customers, our colleagues and our local communities.  We have re-doubled our health and hygiene procedures to make sure our centres stay as safe, healthy and hygienic as possible. We are also doing our best to continue to support our suppliers including many local British nurseries.

I want to thank all our customers and let them know how much we really appreciate their support and understanding in these unprecedented times. We are hugely thankful to those of our customers who continue to visit and to our very dedicated teams.

If you are spending a little more time at home over the coming weeks, I hope that the weather is kind and you are able to enjoy your outside space.”
