National Gardening Exercise Day is June 6th. This is a day that recognizes the health benefits of gardening. Besides the fresh air and Vitamin D you get from working outdoors, you can also improve stretching, balance, and flexibility. Plus, gardening is even known to burn some calories.
Even if you are new at gardening and are still working on that green thumb, this is a day to get out there and work on your own yard, add some garden baskets or planters to your porch or patio, or go help out in a community garden in Baltimore.
It’s also a great time to visit our Baltimore flower shop, greenhouse, and garden center. Here, you’ll find a huge variety of green and blooming plants, hanging baskets, planters, gardening supplies and gifts, and indoor and outdoor plants. Here are some of the great garden items you can expect to see:
First, we have a selection of bedding plants as well as herbs that help you start your gardening effort with the basics. For example, you can add rosemary or basil, which also gives you some amazing fresh herbs to use in your cooking.
Second, we have some hanging baskets like these beauties:
