Residents at Gracewell of Adderbury sow flower seeds, take cuttings and create an action plan for this spring

Residents really enjoyed this weeks gardening activity of sowing a variety of flower seeds into trays. Lobelia, Dahlia, Agapanthus and a few herb seeds among others. We shared memories and gardening stories whilst taking cuttings from a spider plant (Chlorophytum), which some of the residents took to grow on in water in their own apartments. Finally we discussed ideas for what other things residents would like to grow in the in coming months.

 

Residents at Gracewell of Adderbury sow sweet peas and play a sensory herb quiz

This was our first session, bringing gardening activities indoors for residents within a local retirement home. Residents enjoyed sowing sweat pea seeds. Then we re-invigorating the senses by playing a sensory herb quiz in teams of two so it became a sociable yet competitive activity. Big thank you to all involved and who participated, it was a very fun activity to do with you all.
