Bulb planting

My Hippie Wedding 1970 written on a plant labelThis activity goes beyond just bulb planting. By painting the pot and creating a ‘memory flag’ participants are able to draw upon old memories and create new ones. Whilst this is a great activity for adults with dementia, all ages and abilities will be able to get enjoyment from taking part in this.
