Garden Party at Mill House for Aria in Bloom

Mill House Aria in Bloom

The residents and colleagues at Mill House Care Home in Chipping Campden were joined by friends and relatives as they came together to spruce up their gardens as part of our nationwide campaign Aria in Bloom and enjoyed a garden party after all their hard work.

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 painting, planting and potting all sorts around our garden as well as sprucing up some forgotten areas. The sun was shining adding to the success of the day and the results were truly impressive. After all the hard work we came together to celebrate with a lovely garden party for all.

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 Stacey Roblin commented on the success of Aria in Bloom, “We are so proud of the hard work that the team, residents and friends of our home have done, thank you to everyone who joined us. A special thank you to our Administrator Robyn who has tirelessly kept us on track to be ready for today!”

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.
