London: Most people would rather spend time in their gardens than in front of the television or shopping, a poll of around 1,000 Britons has revealed.
The survey by the National Trust found that 70 percent of the population think that spending time in gardens is important for their quality of life, reports a news daily.
Celebrity gardener Alan Titchmarsh said, "I am delighted that the National Trust has produced this report to highlight how gardens and gardening can benefit everyone in society, regardless of age, background or circumstance.
"The message is clear, if you want to feel better get out into a garden. Never has access to a garden been more important for our spiritual and physical wellbeing than it is in today`s rapidly changing landscape."
