A Hitchin care home is set to put on its own version of the Chelsea Flower Show at their summer fete in July.
Foxholes Care Home in Pirton Road will hold the fete on July 27, where they will announce the winner of the best garden award as part of their gardening club scheme.
"It will be like the Chelsea Flower Show.
"We could call it the Foxholes Flower Show," said estate manager Neil Gandecha.
"We decided to start the gardening club as we have so much space on our grounds.
