Glorious day at Ferfoot for Aria in Bloom

Ferfoot Aria in Bloom

The residents and colleagues at Ferfoot Care Home in Chippenham were joined by relatives as they came together to spruce up the gardens 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 had a wonderful day as we planted flowers around the garden, in pots as well as hanging baskets. After everyone’s hard work we had a barbecue sizzling away as we celebrated with a Beatles themed party so we got dressed up for the occasion.

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.

Home Manager Roxana Boldeanu commented on the success of Aria in Bloom, “Thank you to everyone who made this possible, we have beautiful gardens ready for more parties this summer!”

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.
