Last week the unseasonably warm February sunshine cast a beautiful spring glow across the site of Horatio’s Garden Oswestry, which is currently taking shape at the Midland Centre for Spinal Injuries. 

Throughout the month the construction team have been working incredibly hard, and our fourth project is now really starting to resemble the garden that we have all long-imagined. The serpentine pathway is particularly recognisable, and will soon be winding its way through some glorious planting. 

It was also lovely to see the magnolia tree planted by hospital co-founder Dame Agnes Hunt thriving whilst work continued around it; a wonderful reminder of the remarkable power of nature. 

The staff of The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt National Orthopaedic Hospital have been especially marvellous during the building work, offering cups of tea and homemade cake to the site team in true Horatio’s Garden spirit! 

Thank you to all those who are helping to make the project a success.  

We are very excited to see what March will bring for the garden.
