Would you like to start prioritising gardening for wellbeing? Today on the podcast we’re chatting to someone who did just that. Social media celebrity Joe Sugg began posting videos on YouTube as something to do with his friends as a teenager in rural Wiltshire. Now his channel has over seven million subscribers.

Here he shares how he became addicted to scrolling social media and how stepping away from the digital world and the screen, and into the garden, is now a now a big part of his daily routine. From the flowers popping up to the birds and pollinators visiting, in his new book, Grow, by Joe Sugg (Penguin Books, £20), Joe tells us how tending to and maintaining his garden takes him to a place of mental calm.
