Measuring Up The Competition.
Residents at the family-run Knowles Care Home are rolling up their sleeves to take part in a sunflower growing gardening competition where they hope to win up to £100 for the care home’s residents social fund.
“I’m thrilled the competition has been launched here again. I’ve always loved getting out in the garden, it really is a passion of mine” explained Keith, a resident gardener at The Knowles.
The Knowles Care Home invites residents of all gardening experience and ability to join the Gardening Club which is led by their groundskeeper, Richard Mee who provides residents with monthly expert gardening tips and advice. Richard is responsible for maintaining the beautiful gardens at The Knowles. “It’s so lovely to spend time with the residents, they are so passionate about the gardens and what we grow, from onions, beetroots to runner beans and so much more but everything is grown with love, and the sunflower competition is one of their favourites and this year we may have even broken some records.” Said Richard
“I’m quietly confident but I am also happy to take part and will water my sunflower every day with love. Wish us luck!” added fellow resident gardener June.
