In case you needed another reason to garden here's a great report from Saga's website.

I love the fact that: "Apart from weight training, gardening did better than any other weight-bearing exercise including jogging, walking and aerobics."

Gardening's also extremely good for mental health.  Great for lifting moods, diffusing anger, beating stress etc.

I wonder if the NHS or BUPA subsidise it at all?
