Gardening on Prescription News

Friday 27th May 2016

Improve your wellbeing at our weekly gardening club.
If you live in the Southampton area and are experiencing mild to moderate mental health problems, why not join our weekly gardening club? Gardening on Prescription is a new GP referral scheme run by Mayfield Nurseries. Our ten week course helps to improve peoples’ wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem. The course is free to attend and just requires a referral from your GP. Gardening on Prescription will run at the beginning of June, September and February, on Wednesday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm.

Here's a taster of two sessions:

Container vegetable planting
Learn the basics of growing vegetables. Plant your own vegetable container and find out more about feeding, harvesting times and raised bed systems.

Plant knowledge and creating displays
Create a display for your garden or balcony using the various plants at Mayfield. Test your new knowledge in our gardening quiz.
