Appreciating the trees for #nationaltreeweek 2023 🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲🌳🌲
.
I’m a complete Dendrophile, a forest therapy guide & run retreats & walks in the trees. I’m at home when I’m immersed in the beauty of trees 🌳 But whyyy…?

~ spending time around trees reduces stress, boosts mood, and enhances overall wellbeing. Be mindful as you walk in the trees & feel the calmness it brings 🌳
~ spending time in environments filled with trees enhances cognitive function & concentration 🌲
~ studies show that being around trees lowers blood pressure and heart rate 🌳
~ trees in urban areas help reduce pollution, providing cleaner air for us to breathe 🌲
~ green spaces encourage outdoor exercise, contributing to improved fitness & overall wellness 🌳
~ hugging a tree brings a calm feeling of connection & bringing your mind, body & soul into balance 🌲
~ being around trees gives us a greater connection to the beautiful planet we live on 🌳
~ the spiritual side cannot be ignored. They are simply magical, full of wisdom & energy 🌲
~ leaves falling contribute to the beautiful earth beneath our feet 🌳
~ trees are like a wildlife apartment block 🌲
~ mostly… we can’t eat, drink or breathe without them πŸ€—πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸ’š

β€˜This year’s National Tree Week is extra special as it marks the 50th anniversary of the famous β€˜Plant a Tree in 73’ campaign – from which National Tree Week (and The Tree Council) was born!

Go plant more trees! πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸŒ²πŸŒ³πŸ’š

Do you have a Poinsettia every Xmas? And how do you choose which one?! I love ALL of them but this orange one really got me this year 🧑🍊 I’ve managed to keep one going strong all the way through to the following November when it promptly 🫠 just before Xmas that year πŸ˜‚ So…how to keep them thriving… ⬇️

~ place in indirect light
~ the usual advice is to keep the soil evenly moist (don’t over water/don’t let it dry out to a crisp while you’re enjoying your Xmas pudding) but I’ve found it to be much better to allow the soil to be pretty dry (not crisp), then water it thoroughly with tepid water, let the excess drain away & put it back in its outer pot. Also means you won’t over water as they definitely don’t like that
~ remember they aren’t always kept, transported or cared for ideally on the way to the shops. Try not to shock them even more on the route home!
~ don’t place by heat/cold, they need an evenly mildly warm temperate
~ the colours are bracts (colourful leaves) & to get them to be colourful & flower again (the teeny little flowers in the middle) is quite tricky but doable by pruning back in spring, pinching out in summer, repotting, forcing plus all other manner of things we try to do to keep a plant native to Mexico alive in conditions it’s not keen on 🫣
