 Instaplanta's Mobile Therapy Garden is designed for use in residential care homes where staff find it difficult to deliver gardening activities to residents due to their failing health and restricted mobility.

So when you can't get the residents outside into the garden then why not bring the garden inside to them?

This... new system of gardening will allow care home providers the opportunity to engage more readily with their older and more frail residents. Carrying out gardening in this way will allow them the opportunity to access the stimulating benefits that gardening brings in a safe comfortable environment.

This 'no dig' garden also frees staff from the high maintenance regimes that come hand in hand with the more traditional permanent gardening plot. Container gardens for the elderly makes sense!!
