Benefits of Visiting a Garden Centre

Scientific evidence proves that plants, gardens, and gardening, are beneficial to our physical and mental well-being. Essentially, being surrounded by plants allows you to connect with nature, boosts your mood, and has a calming effect on your mental health. On top of that, The University of Exeter found that people who spend time in a garden report generally good health, higher psychological well-being, and greater physical activity levels than those who don’t. Moreover, houseplants boost our mood, reduce stress, and even reduce blood pressure. Do you need any more reasons to visit a garden centre in London?

So, this garden centre is actually located in Morden Hall Park, a National Trust Park on the banks of the Wandle in Morden, London. When entering the park, pause to enjoy the sounds of the rushing river and spot wildlife in the wetlands. The park is so large that you can walk around for hours before heading to the garden centre. However, I’m moving on to the garden centre now.

First things first, coffee! This garden centre in London has two cafes that serve the best coffee and tasty light meals: the Stableyard and the Potting Shed. Best of all, you can bring your dog. After securing your coffee, have a look at everything the garden centre has to offer. The centre is brimming with new bulb varieties, bee-friendly wildflower seeds and unusual vegetable seeds just to name a few. Also, all proceeds from every purchase you make in the garden centre and café go straight back to maintaining the park.
