Green fingered retirees spring into the new season at Fern Court in Swansea

30 April 2019

Retirees in Swansea celebrated the arrival of spring at Fern Court when BBC2 Wales gardener, Terry Walton, was invited to host a masterclass at the McCarthy Stone’s development on Gower Road.

The homeowners’ lounge at the Fern Court Retirement Living development was at its blooming best, as Terry shared his top gardening tips with guests. All those who attended the event had the opportunity to ask Terry for spring planting advice and many took away signed copies of his book The Allotment Almanac. 

Clare Bright, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone West Midlands, said: “With the dark days of winter behind us, it was wonderful to bring homeowners and members of the local community together at Fern Court for a very spring-like celebration.

“We certainly have a lot of gardening enthusiasts here who are thoroughly looking forward to creating their own vegetable patch in the garden at Fern Court, just in time for spring!” 

Terry Walton, commented: “It was great day at Fern Court with all of the McCarthy Stone homeowners. The sun was shining and we walked around the extensive gardens before I presented my top gardening tips over light refreshments. I’m already looking forward to returning to the development to see how the gardens develop further.”
