I agree that it is good for stress and the weird thing is that whatever huge challenges I set myself gardening-wise, they never give me any stress.
Talking on the phone to a friend yesterday I told him that I had spent the previous day on my knees digging up claggy clay with a crow bar. He is about 10 years younger than I and he was amazed; gardening keeps you physically fit and I strongly believe that being healthy in your body can really help the health of your mind.
What is good for the heart is good for the brain.
