Pop of colour at Bradbury House for Aria in Bloom

Bradbury House Aria in Bloom

The residents and colleagues at Bradbury House Care Home in Braintree were joined by relatives and friends as they came together to give their garden a pop of colour as part of our nationwide campaign Aria in Bloom.

After the success of Aria in Bloom last year when it was launched, we wanted to get involved to make this year’s competition even better and make our gardens beautiful for the people living in our community.

We were busy planting and painting away the day to make our garden a place for our residents and families to enjoy. A big thank you to Braintree Town Tesco who kindly gifted our residents some seeds and lights, as well as Wickes in Maldon who supplied us with garden stones, compost and trails.

The sun was shining adding to the success of the day and the results were truly impressive. As part of RHS National Gardening Week taking place in May, it was a great opportunity for us to get involved in the Big Seed Sow initiative, a community-growing campaign designed to get communities, groups and individuals sowing and sharing seeds. This year we planted Californian Poppy and Love-Lies-Bleeding seeds.

Sheree Burleton, Home Manager commented on the success of Aria in Bloom, “Thank you to everyone who joined us and to the local businesses who supported us with donations. It’s incredible to see how Aria in Bloom has brought everyone together to make such a beautiful change in our community.”

The winning home and runners up will be chosen in the next few weeks when the plants and flowers have bloomed and the results can be seen in full effect.
