UK: Flowers grown by gardeners with disabilities in bloom

1 Min Read

A project that helps people with disabilities try gardening is offering them a sense of purpose, members have said.

Carlisle Day Services is holding a plant sale on Saturday at Carlisle Cemetery, showcasing the efforts growers have been working on since November. When asked about the Garden Linx project, Shaun Liddle, who is partially sighted, teared up and said he was “grateful” to the team.

Mr Liddle said he was particularly proud of this year’s crop, and described his personal style as “colorful”, pairing blue and yellow flowers “with a begonia in the middle”.
The single pots, hanging baskets and filled planters have been nurtured and arranged in Carlisle.

Mr Liddle said people returned each year to buy them.
