It's a well known fact that gardening is good for you, not just tending to plants outside but having a view of green can do wonders for health and well-being. From reducing stress, to promoting faster healing and improving concentration, there are a lot of reasons you might want to surround yourself with some luscious green. 

For those without an outside space that can be a little more tricky... Having just moved in to an apartment with limited outdoor space I've been experimenting with making terrariums - miniature gardens that you can build within  whatever glass container takes your fancy! Very easy to do and perfect for succulents.
