Gardening club fun at Gateshead care homeGreen fingered Residents at HC-One’s Springfield House care home in Low Fell, Gateshead came together for a gardening club morning last week.

While some Residents opted to relax in the sunshine, others helped the team tend to the gardening work, repotting the tomato, cucumber, rocket, peppers and sunflower seeds that were planted a couple of weeks ago.

Some of the seeds have to be kept indoors at the moment until the weather is warmer during the night, Residents enjoyed chatting as they worked and sharing their gardening tips with each other.

Springfield House Home Manger, Kay Rudd said: “I am glad that everyone enjoyed soaking up the start of the warmer weather and tending to the garden, I can’t wait to see all of the plants growing.”

Located on Durham Road, Springfield House offers short and long term care for older ladies and gentlemen in Gateshead that require residential care and residential memory care for those living with dementia.
