3 REASONS TO CONSIDER GARDENING AS A COUPLE’S ACTIVITY
November 08, 2018
If you’re always on the lookout for fun things to do with your partner, we’ve got a wonderful couple’s activity for you to try - gardening is one of the hottest date night trends for 2017! If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, the mere notion of gardening may conjure up images of old ladies in sunhats and dungarees pottering away in the backyard, but this image can now be replaced by sun-bronzed couples tilling the earth and creating a green space they can enjoy together.
Here are three reasons why gardening makes an excellent couple’s activity:
1. IT GETS YOU OUTSIDE
One of the perils of living in the digital information age is that we tend to spend a lot of our leisure time in front of screens – computers, TVs, smartphones. Gardening is a great couple’s activity because it gets you outside in the fresh air. When you’re not working away at your flower beds, mulching the veggie patch or trimming the hedges, there’s always fun outings to the nursery and garden expos to encourage you to get out and about.
2. YOU GROW THINGS TOGETHER
Sharing a nurturing activity is one of the simplest ways to get closer as a couple. If you’re not ready to consider children or up for the responsibility of keeping a pet, growing a garden (or even just a few plants!) is a great option. Taking care of something as a couple gives you the opportunity to see your partner in a caretaking role, and vice versa, which strengthens your bond tremendously.
3. IT’S GREEN!
In this day and age, we all have to do our bit to safeguard the earth’s dwindling resources. Growing your own vegetables, using kitchen scraps to make mulch and generally becoming a little more self-sustaining is a big step in the right direction.
Keep your vegetable garden healthy by feeding it regularly with NutriGreen Gwano Pellets, a 100 % organic fertiliser made from composted poultry manure with macro and micro elements. NutriGreen Gwano Pellets is enriched with carbon to improve the quality of the soil and the uptake of nutrients.

I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
