Carry on gardening has been launched by Thrive, the national charity that uses gardening to change lives. Even for those who are fit and able, gardening is a demanding job which can cause everyday aches and pains, and aggravate problems like a bad back or weak hands. With the warmer months and longer days finally here, gardeners will be spending more time working in their gardens. All too often they don’t plan or equip themselves properly, and regret it the next day when they have aching legs, arms and a sore back.
Thrive’s new website is packed with information to make everyday gardening jobs like digging, weeding, watering and planting easier and more enjoyable for everyone. The website includes the following:
