Rockdale enters South East in Bloom

18th July 2019

Judging took place on Friday, 5th July for South-East in Bloom.  Our Head Gardener, Annette and her team, along with resident volunteer, ‘Mrs G’, worked extremely hard to create a planting theme for the 2019 entry, with edible plants and red, white and blue planting.

One of our residents kindly wrote up the value of the edible plants to finish off the entry.

Pictures speak louder than words sometimes, so please enjoy the pictures below taken on Judging day.  We will hear the results in September.
