Fizz and Flowers at Kingsclear for Aria in Bloom

Kingsclear Aria in Bloom

The residents and colleagues at Kingsclear Care Home in Camberley were joined by relatives and the local community 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 a range of flowers around the garden and were very fortunate to have received kind donations from Tesco in Basingstoke, High Cross Church, Home Instead and Longacre garden centre. Everyone then enjoyed a glass of fizz and a beautiful fresh fruit platter.

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 Rob Cook commented on the success of Aria in Bloom, “Thank you to everyone who joined us and to the local companies for their donations. 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.
