Hi everybody in the Manchester and Greater Manchester Area,
We are a group of volunteers who are looking for plant donations for a memorial garden for 5 yr old Luca Giovannini.
The memorial garden will be at his school in Timperley.
With us volunteering our time for this project, the budget is very limited. We are looking for plants that are child friendly (e.g. no roses) and that will bring colour all year round. For example, dahlia, hardy geraniums, fuchsias, lavender, hellebores, snowdrops, ivy, Lungwort, any other perennials and evergreens.
The garden will be used by his classmates and future pupils of the school as a place to reflect and learn about plants and wildlife.
A little bit about Luca:
Five-year-old Luca Giovannini died within two days of an infection causing swelling to his brain. His parents agreed to donate the organs of their beloved son. The lives of two tots and two adults were transformed or saved by them receiving his organs.
If you have any other plant suggestions or questions, please let me know.
I hope some of you will be able to help.
