Work in the gardens this week was interrupted by the relentless rain which saw us, once again, unable to get on with a great deal in the garden due to the waterlogged ground. We did however finish removing the broken raised beds and levelled the ground in addition to potting plants on ready for replanting or sale.
One border which had been home to several old roses which had been awaiting a permanent home, has been made into a new artichoke bed, the roses having been moved to their new location. A lot of the plants potted up in previous years have now found homes in various the borders. The old chrysanthemum flower stalks, that have been a great success as cut flowers, in the poly tunnels were cut down ready for the flush of new growth to get a head start for this years crop.
An afternoon spent getting to know each other
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
