Join the gardening revolution with these inspirational green-fingered feeds.

When did gardening become so cool? Apparently, millennials spend more money on gardening than their parents, and these days, you are as likely to see Cindy Crawford or Kate Moss pottering around with a watering can as you are your mum.

While most might see gardening as a welcome respite from the tyranny of social media, the two are also, strangely, natural bedfellows, with the likes of Instagram offering the perfect platform from which to share with all the daily pleasures (and disappointments) of gardening life.

From house plants and botanicals to allotments and country borders, these top insta-feeds from our favourite gardens and gardeners have introduced, inspired and encouraged a whole new generation of plant lovers to take up their trowels (even if they’re not putting down their phones…).
