We are delighted to reveal our visual for the garden we are making for spinal injuries charity Horatio’s Garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.Our garden will embody the special qualities found in all Horatio’s Gardens while incorporating influences from the Sheffield region, connecting it to the garden’s future permanent home at the Princess Royal Spinal Injuries Centre in Sheffield, where it will benefit thousands of patients, relatives and NHS staff for years to come. The garden is a beautiful, immersive, restorative haven – the antithesis of a busy, clinical hospital environment. Our aim is to give visitors to the show a sense of the hope and transformative effect having access to a Horatio’s Garden can have when coming to terms with a devastating and traumatic spinal injury.To read more about the garden visit our dedicated page here.
