Better Homes and Gardens’ Graham Ross visits The Grange!
Ingenia Lifestyle The Grange played host to Channel 7’s Better Homes and Gardens TV crew earlier this month.
The popular DIY, renovation, gardening and cooking TV show was filming a 90 minute show focused on seniors lifestyle living in the Lake Macquarie region and will be aired this Friday 14th September from 7pm.
The residents were ecstatic, and a little overwhelmed, to welcome the celebrity gardener into their personal gardens and receive his advice on recognising species of flowers and plants and his assistance on how to keep insects and pests away, while signing the odd magazines and appearing in photos too.
The community’s communal herb and vege garden was a major feature with resident, Bev Wood and her family, receiving help from Graham with planting colour in the communal garden where residents can take clippings of veges and herbs for their cooking and place a coin donation to keep the garden alive and growing.
The rose garden, green wall of bromeliads and the men’s shed also received a helping hand from Graham.
The community’s Spring Garden competitors were also proud to show off their efforts just in time for their judging in late September.
The over 55s community has a strong green spirit with dedicated and well-loved village management and grounds and maintenance keepers who are all loving life at The Grange and loving the associated health and wellness benefits the community is delivering together.
Thanks to all involved for making the TV shoot a success!
