Millfield residents take orders for hanging baskets

Residents of Millfield Care Home have been showing their entrepreneurial spirit as well as their green fingers – by making and selling colourful hanging baskets.

They have been taking orders for their creations and selling them for £10 each to family members and visitors to the home in Heywood, Greater Manchester.

Examples of the beautiful baskets, brimming with petunias and geraniums, can be seen adorning the front of the home – next to signs advertising baskets for sale.

The money is going into our gardening fund and will help to pay for residents’ future projects.

This summer our gardener created a raised bed for residents to help plant up with marigolds and lavender, and other carefully-chosen plants.
