Coolings Feel Good Gardens

With so many people turning to gardening over the past few years, we have created the Coolings Feel Good Garden – these are aimed at new, less experienced gardeners. We hope that these displays will be aspirational for customers and help demonstrate which plants and products to buy to achieve a similar look at home.

Here at Coolings we are passionate about the health and well-being benefits that gardening can bring. One of the positive things to come out of the 2020

lockdown was that many new people go out in their gardens.

Now, two years on, we want to help those new gardeners make the most of their outside space, and enjoy the health benefits of being outside.

As such, we are launching the Coolings Feel Good Gardens across our 4 centres this spring – these are designed to inspire you and help you to realise your garden dreams. To highlight the many benefits of well-being that gardening brings, each month we will change the plants and products to focus on a different well-being theme.

Feel Good Gardens Recap

April 2022 – Sound and Scentsation

April marks the official start of Spring, but it is also known for its April showers. We’re embracing the sound of water in the Coolings Feel Good Garden this month by introducing a water feature and rain chains. Water features come in all shapes and sizes and can be powered by the sun so there’s no need to worry about electrical connections, utilising the power from the sun is also obviously much kinder on the plant. When it comes to scent in the garden, rain is great for enhancing the scent of plants!

 

May 2022 – Taste

There is nothing quite as satisfying as growing your own – imagine the joy of tucking into your first roast dinner with home grown fluffy roast potatoes! Growing your own has many benefits, not only does it provide you with delicious fruit and veg saving you money on your food shop, but it also opens up the possibility of discovering more unusual varieties. Plus, it gets you outside which is great for mental health.

 

July 2022 – Colour

Get your garden ready for a month full of summer celebrations as we add some bright colours to our well-being gardens. Whether you are hosting a garden party or celebrating from the comfort of your own patio or balcony, we have the perfect additions to add a pop of colour to your borders.
