Kinnaird Manor care home Resident wins green finger award in HC-One gardening competitionThis year HC-One’s annual Gardening Competition saw a number of outstanding creations submitted from across its care homes in the UK. This year’s Gardening Competition has been even more significant in bringing joy and excitement to Residents and Colleagues, during what has been a difficult time for everyone due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s green fingers award category winner, who are Residents living in HC-One care homes are:

Andy Smith at Kinnaird Manor Care Home:

Andy received a beautiful rose plant for his birthday in May which he planted into a large pot, instead of in the ground. He said it is better to plant the rose plant into the pot as it’s easier to move if you want to change its position to protect it from the elements. The plant transformed into a fully grown rose bush in only a matter of months.

The judges of the HC-One Gardening Competition were incredibly grateful to all entrants for taking part and were especially impressed with this year’s prize winners. HC-One has had a great success with this year’s Gardening Competition and look forward to running the Gardening Competition in subsequent years to come.
