Wildflower seeds are being sent to Hutton staff and students

The UK has seen an unprecedented upsurge in gardening during the current lockdown, and as the nation finds itself restricted in time spent outside of their homes, it is only natural to try and make the best of the green areas which we can access and interact with – our gardens.

Recognising the widely acknowledged benefits of gardening for physical and mental health, the James Hutton Institute has sent each member of its staff and its UK-based students a small pack of native wildflower seeds to create a one-square metre area of wildflowers.
