The Viridis team were invited to East Cheshire Hospice Last week alongside Creative Gardens & Driveways owner David Hadley to meet the hospice team after donating £1,000 worth of plants for use throughout the hospices public areas including courtyards.

Plants were carefully selected for each area including welcoming shrubs for the entrance driveway, edible herbs for the kitchen garden, and sweet-scented blooms for the sensory garden. The courtyards offer a space for patients, families, and staff to relax and get closer to nature, with some of the wards backing onto the courtyards enjoying the view through open doors and allowing the scent of the floral display to come into the wards on the breeze.

The Hospice that actively encourages environmental responsibility amongst its staff, volunteers, supply chain and trustees offer a warm and welcoming space for adults facing life limiting illnesses, serving the communities of Macclesfield, Buxton, Congleton, High Legh, High Peak, Knutsford, Poynton, Wilmslow and the surrounding areas. Providing care, comfort and support to patients and their families.

Michelle Brown of East Cheshire Hospice, Ryan Simpson of Viridis Plants and David Hadley of Creative Gardens & Driveways pictured, were delighted to be asked to support the hospice with the courtyard makeover which they will be entering into this year’s Britan in Bloom Competition.

We wish them luck and thank them for the great support and work they do.
