Local Care Home Embraces Flower Power

Residents at Magnolia Court in Golders Green celebrated Chelsea Flower Show which took place from 24 to 28 May 2022 – as well as watching the show on TV, they also held their own competition for the green-fingered.

Created and run by the Royal Horticultural Society, Chelsea Flower Show is the world’s greatest flower show with stunning garden designs and gorgeous floral designs.  Residents were delighted to see the show return to its rightful place in the spring season after a move to September last year.

Residents took part in flower-based activities throughout the week including a flower arranging competition and planting flowers and shrubs in the garden which everyone really enjoyed.  Their collective knowledge about flowers gained from years of gardening experience was very impressive.

Octavian Stanciu, General Manager at Magnolia Court said:
“Our garden is a much loved space, our residents really enjoy looking after the plants and flowers and watching them grow and change through the seasons.  It has been wonderful to see all the beautiful garden designs at Chelsea, it has given us real inspiration to try some new planting schemes and see what we can achieve in our own garden.”

Bill Crowhurst, a resident at Magnolia Court added:
“I just love to watch the Chelsea Flower Show, to me it is the absolute highlight of the gardening year.  I don’t know how they manage to come up with such innovative designs each year but it is just so lovely to see all the gorgeous blooms and beautiful colours.”
