Purple Reign is the next deep dive of Nature’s Rx for Mental Wellness, the theme for the 2018 Garden Trends Report.
Look around you, purple is the color of 2018. In fashion, in the home and… in the garden.
But what does that mean for your garden or your health?
As we continue to dive into Nature’s Rx for Mental Wellness, the theme for the 2018 Garden Trends Report, we start to look more to how we can create spaces that help ease our minds.
