A farm shop and garden centre has made a large donation of bulbs, plants and seeds to an Ipswich care home - to help its garden flourish in time for summer.
Henley House care home made the request for new plants in its garden to give residents a bright and colourful outdoor space, which helps their overall wellbeing.
After a long and hard winter, the garden at the Greensleeves Care home - which specialises in dementia care - was also said to need some attention.
As well as family and friends responding to the home's Facebook call, Goslings Farm donated a huge variety of bulbs, plants and seeds from sunflowers, to lilies and gladioli.
Lyn Andrews, administrator at Henley House, said: “Our residents are so excited and grateful to have received these from Goslings Farm.
"They have kindly donated such a wonderful array of flowers and this has promoted some wonderful memories for our residents when we were looking through them all.
"We can’t wait to go and pay them a visit when we are allowed so we can say a big thank you to them - and to all of the relatives that have kindly donated gardening tools.”
