The study showed that a woman who gardened was on average 11lb lighter than a non-gardening female neighbour – roughly the equivalent to a whole dress size.

Meanwhile, green-fingered men were shown to be 16lb – more than a stone – lighter than their non-gardening counterparts.

What’s more, the research revealed that men were 62 per cent less likely to be overweight or obese if they gardened, while the women were 46 per cent less likely to pile on the pounds.
