There is an increasing amount of good scientific evidence, which suggests that gardening is very good for mental health and well being.
A combination of: fresh air, moderate exercise, the power of seeing things grow etc.
I can vouch personally for the help it is providing me, in coping with serious depression.
There has been talk of GPs being able to prescribe gardening therapy, although I am not sure quite how this would work.
