National Gardening Week runs from April 26 to May 2 and is the nation's biggest celebration of gardening.

Bromson Hill’s owner Ram Mahendran said: “We are very grateful for the kind and thoughtful gift of plant pots and seeds from Barratt Homes.

"Bromson Hill Nursing Home have done a fantastic job and worked very hard throughout the pandemic so we hope that both residents and staff can benefit from this donation.”
