A survey by National Trust in the UK has revealed that most citizens believe spending time in the garden can boost their quality of life.
"The message is clear, if you want to feel better get out into a garden. Never has access to a garden been more important for our spiritual and physical wellbeing than it is in today's rapidly changing landscape," said celebrity gardener Alan Titchmarsh.
Some 70% of respondents in the survey have said that they prefer to spend time in the garden rather than in front of the television.
"In today's fast-paced world, finding space and time to unwind and relax is becoming ever more crucial," said National Trust's director general Fiona Reynolds.
