Shrewsbury Flower Show
‘The Uplands Sensory Garden’ has been designed to stimulate the senses in a way which prompts a positive emotional response from its visitors. A garden that can be enjoyed by all, but has been devised with older adults particularly in mind, especially those who may have impairments to their minds, eyes, ears or mobility, and for whom it should provide a level of therapy and wellbeing.
The garden achieved a gold medal and ‘Mike Haugh’ Trophy for best in Show.
The garden has been rebuilt at The Uplands at Oxon nursing home, an award-winning care home at Bicton Heath on the edge of Shrewsbury.
