Blooming marvelous day at Garth House

Garth House Aria in Bloom

Residents, colleagues and relatives at Garth House Care Home in Dorking came together to spruce up their 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 a blooming oasis for the people living in our community.

Our garden underwent a remarkable transformation, thanks to the collective efforts and hard work of everyone. With new plants being potted, colourful hanging baskets being prepared and the addition of bright flowers to our borders.

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 Sheena Agil commented on the success of the day, “Thank you to everyone who came and joined us for our community garden day, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the sunshine. The transformation of our outdoor spaces is amazing and we look forward to seeing our residents enjoy spending time in them.”

All 50 of our communities at Aria Care got involved and 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.
