Gardening is one of the most relaxing activities you can do during quarantine, especially now when the weather is getting warmer. Growing plants and taking care of them could give you endless benefits such as burning a lot of calories, lowering your blood pressure and making you happier.
“Gardening to grow your own food also helps in quarantine because you don’t face the shortage of resources like herbs and vegetables,” says gardening enthusiast and founder of Gardening Mentor, Kevin Rodrigues.
“My advice to beginners is to start small and keep adding more to the garden. One of the best ways to start is to grow herbs like basil or cilantro. They are easy to grow and don’t need much maintenance,” he explained.
