A nursery providing work for up to 30 people with special needs is ‘saying it with flowers’ for the enjoyment of patients and staff at St Mary’s Hospital, thanks to a grant from the hospital’s Friends.

Members of the Care in the Garden team, based at Palmers Brook Community Nursery in Wootton, used discarded pallets and other wood to make planters; altogether 15 were constructed, now sited at various points in the hospital grounds.

The Friends of St Mary’s agreed to give Care in the Garden up to £1,800 to pay for the boxes and the first year’s planting.
