In this challenging time we’re more aware than ever of the importance of nature. The emergence of new life in Spring can be really uplifting, giving people an important psychological boost, and we want to share this with everyone, whatever their situation.
While many people still cannot visit, we are trying to find ways to make our beautiful plants and landscapes as available as possible.
Every week, a member of the horticulture team is filming a short ‘Wellness Wander’. These short films show the beautiful colours, sights and sounds of spring unfolding in the Garden. We hope that people who are unable to get out and about at the moment, or those who simply miss CUBG, will enjoy these relaxed explorations of the season.
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.
During the spring and early summer, 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, 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.
