The truism that gardeners are natural optimists has never been tested more than right now. That this time of socially-responsible, Corona-induced confinement coincides with the most beautiful spring days is particularly poignant, and those of us fortunate to have any outside space at all must count ourselves particularly lucky. Normally at this time of year I am a gardening fiend, planting, digging and tending, with mud beneath my fingernails and every hair out of place. Each Sunday morning, in my previous life, I would pull myself out of bed to go to Columbia Road Flower Market. It was one of the happiest times of my week, weaving among the stalls, chatting to the sellers, buying cut flowers for the house and plants for the garden, then going home to plant and arrange before sitting down to Sunday lunch. I haven’t been for two weeks now. The cheerful rhythm of my calendar has been disrupted. The rhythm of all of our lives has been disrupted, and the gentle domestic pleasures we once took for granted now - so quickly - feel strangely exotic. There are many studies that show being outside in general and gardening in particular is beneficial to our mental health. It can reduce stress, anxiety and depression. We need it more than ever now. Those of us who have any outside space at all, from gardens, to yards and balconies, even window boxes, know that even at the best of times, these can provide precious balm. Mark Diacono, author of Grow Cook: The Ultimate Kitchen Garden Guide (Headline, £10.99), says, “Until last week, I hadn’t really appreciated the pleasure I could get from something as ordinary as mowing. Being surrounded by hedgerow chatter felt so right. The hint of warmth in the sunshine pushed away the craziness for a while, and I think we could all do with some of that. Regardless of what’s happening, it is spring, there is hope, and being in it - even for the most mundane reason - allowed me to feel that. Gardening is so often spoken of as an act of hope, of investing now in a pleasure to come, but right now, even the simple tasks can lift the soul in a way that makes today better.” There are still plenty of things we can be doing, even without trips to the garden centre or nursery. Now is the time to dig out all of those old seed packets you have hanging around. If you, like me, find them irresistible and always buy far more than I can use in one season, you should have plenty to be getting along with. While the germination rates in old seed are less reliable, you will still probably get decent results for your efforts.
