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.
