According to data collected by YouGov for the Horticultural Trades Association, 84% of British adults believe gardens and green spaces benefit their physical health (see the infographic below).
This is supported by the Royal Horticultural Society, which recently ran a campaign to help people get more “Vitamin G” – a term used to highlight the potential benefits of gardening.
