Blooms regifted to hospital

Bouquets of flowers that were repurposed from Subi Blooms floral installations were gifted to nurses, midwives, new mothers and staff at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) last week.

KEMH Women and Newborn Health Service Executive Director Jodi Graham said: “The flowers instantly lifted the spirits of patients and staff at the hospital. The thoughtfulness of the regifting of these beautiful flowers was commented upon by everyone.”

This year’s Subi Blooms event was the City's biggest yet, featuring 13 large-scale floral installations curated by prominent local floral artists.
