Aromatherapy Gardening..

Exactly what the doctor ordered. I used to be a skeptic, I used to think that people who saught alternative therapy were somewhat unstable to actually believe that drinking tea or eating a root could heal the ailments. Until I began working with Tracey , now my mind has opened up and changed. I had written previously about the focus of my garden is to please my sense of smell primarily, sight and touch are actually second. All the fragrant plants are closest to the porch and walkway to gently brush against.
I have promised myself to wait for any other perenial purchase (with exception to the flowering almond tree I really want) on restrain for a little bank book recovery. I was in the Zhers garden centre boggled over the "gicantico" super sized tomato and other anual plants on display when my nose led me to a basket hanging in a corner. I am hanging my basket by the front door to greet me home. As I was paying for my treasure the scent had tipped off a few keen scent lovers in line, asking me where I had found the treasure, but sadly it was the last one!

Ah, you are the opposite of me. Strong odours from plants bother me.

Sweet, cloying ones, I mean. Like hyacinths, or the city-planted tree in our front yard when it's in full bloom.

Hi!
My name is Emma and I'm a student from Sweden. Right now I'm writing a paper about different sorts of therapy. I wonder if you would like to answer some questions about your experience in garden therapy?
I read a bit in your blog that you have been/are doing this, so I hope you would like to give me some information and in that case, e-mail me them? :) It would help me so much!

The results of my study is going to be part of statistics of how well it works. I am also going to compare it to antidepressive medicin and other methods.
My questions for you are:
1. How do you think garden therapy has helped you?

2. In what way has it changed your life, how did your life look before, during therapy, just after and now?

3. How satisfied were you with your garden therapy?
a) very satisfied
b) better than expected
c) ok
d) not satisfied

4) more reflections?
