Knowle Park getting ready for summer with Aria in Bloom

Knowle Park Aria in Bloom

The residents and colleagues at Knowle Park Nursing Home in Cranleigh came together to spruce up their wonderful outdoor spaces ready for summer 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 our grounds including in our raised beds, along our driveway and in planters on our patios for all to enjoy.

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 Caroline Sears commented on the success of Aria in Bloom, “Thank you to everyone, the support and enthusiasm from all involved has truly made a difference in enhancing our outdoor spaces for our residents and visitors.”

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.
