Love Your Garden presenter Frances Tophill inspired residents last Wednesday with her botanical talk.

The ITV presenter gave out practical advice, ideas and tips to help maintain a healthy garden.

She said: “I think everyone should garden. People who are not as able can just potter or sit in the sun and children love it too. Everyone can benefit.

“I am hoping to make peoples’ lives easier and give them ideas they can apply when choosing plants for their garden."

Guests and members of the community came for the talk and home manager, Selvie Naidoo, said: “We always encourage residents to go outside.

“The talk was fantastic because it is a chance for people to network. This care home caters for the community and we are here to support them.”
