In these challenging times we’re more aware than ever of the importance of nature and we want to share the beauty of nature and the Garden with everyone, whatever their situation.
As many people were unable to visit the Garden over the past few years due to Covid-19, we tried to find ways to make our beautiful plants and landscapes as accessible as possible.
While the Garden is now open as normal, we have kept these videos up and we hope that people who are unable to get out and about, or those who simply miss CUBG, will be able to enjoy the Garden from home:
We filmed short Wellness Wanders. These short, relaxing films show the beautiful colours, sights and sounds of the Garden. There is now a big library of these films showing the Garden through the seasons. The most recent video can be found out on our website here, and you can also look through the archive of previous tours to watch the Garden develop over the months.
Take two mindful minutes with us and connect with nature. Stop, breathe and relax to some calming sights and sounds here at the Garden.
We shared short springtime scenes from the Garden during Mental Health Awareness Week 10-16 May 2021. The theme in 2021 was about connecting people with nature and how nature can improve our mental health.
During the spring and early summer 2020, our Horticulture and Learning teams created weekly videos to give tips on growing your own plants at home and supporting the wildlife in your garden. To find out more, please visit the Gardening Club.
While the Garden was closed in spring 2020, we posted ‘BitesizeBotanics’ – short videos and pictures of the springtime beauty in the Garden on our social media channels. These are all gathered together on our website here, and also on our YouTube channel.
Our Learning team has posted loads of brilliant family activities to do at home or while out for a walk that are great fun and also explore the world of nature and gardening.
To watch all of our Garden videos from recent months, and longer ago, please visit our YouTube channel, where you can also see videos from our online Festival of Plants and other insights into Garden life.
