Another planting session took place at The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House at the weekend in the blazing heat, to start planting the Garden of Remembrance around the secluded, large pond area they have on site.
Our National Sales Manager, Peter Mortin, was on hand again, along with a hoard of very keen volunteers and his Labrador, Bracken, to plant the flowers we used for our display at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
This project has been on-going for over a year now, after we donated all of the plants from both our Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Show displays last year, and Peter designed the garden at the centre of the Hospice’s new facility.
Saturday was very hot, but the volunteers ploughed on, and almost finished the planting. A few more hours work is still needed to finish it off though, which they are hoping to get done in the next few weeks.
This part of the Hospice’s 4.5 acre garden is going to be used by the patients and any visitors for relaxation and reflection. With only a bit more planting to do, hopefully it won’t be long before it gets to be used as such.
