"Gardening itself is a good physical activity, in addition, it has got the desired characteristic of taking you out of yourself, caring and nurturing and thinking about something else and again, you are tending to spend prolonged periods of time in a natural environment," said Professor Beattie.

Recent research from Ronseal has indicated that many Brits risk compromising their health by not spending enough time in the outdoors.

Professor Beattie agreed with this saying, "Natural environments elicit specific emotional reactions, which reduce levels of stress; they promote people's willingness to express positive views like joy and satisfaction."
