Brewin Dolphin legacy – Horatio’s garden
The RHS Chelsea Flower celebrations are over and the gardens have been dismantled.
The Brewin Dolphin Garden entitled ‘Forever Freefolk’, designed by esteemed nurserywoman Rosy Hardy achieved an impressive silver medal for her first ever show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
The stunning Coccolith sculpture has been donated to Horatio’s Garden, designed by James Alexander Sinclair, at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Spinal Injuries Unit in Glasgow.
Horatio’s Garden is a charity that creates and lovingly cares for beautiful accessible gardens in NHS spinal injury centres. Leading garden designers develop the stunning sanctuaries for patients and their family and friends, creating an environment which becomes an integral part of their lives and care whilst spending many months in hospital.
Both Brewin Dolphin and designer Rosy Hardy were keen to create a legacy for the garden. It is always sad to see the show gardens disassembled after such hard work has gone into the design and building them. In this instance it’s exciting to know that the garden will live on at the fabulous Horatio’s Garden and can be enjoyed by others for many years to come.
As the RHS Chelsea Flower Show drew to a close the plants were also sold to the public and raised £2,000 for Naomi House Children’s Hospice.
