Aria in Bloom gardening day at Galsworthy House

Galsworthy House Aria in Bloom

The residents and colleagues at Galsworthy House Nursing Home in Kingston-upon-Thames got their green fingers at the ready as they came together to spruce up the grounds 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 a range of flowers around the garden and after a day of hard work everyone enjoyed some live entertainment outside. 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 Serpil Mitchell commented on the success of Aria in Bloom, “It’s incredible to see how Aria in Bloom has brought everyone together to make such a beautiful change in our community. The support and enthusiasm from everyone involved have truly made a difference in enhancing our outdoor spaces.”

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.
