Horatio’s Garden Midlands will be opening in support of the National Garden Scheme on Sunday 19th September from 2pm – 5pm.
As the garden is situated within a hospital, this will be a ticketed event with timed entry, with a maximum of 30 people entering hourly at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.
Pre-booking is therefore essential, so to secure your tickets please click here, or simply click the ‘Buy Tickets’ button at the top of this page.
Admission costs £5 per adult, whilst children are welcome in the garden for free.
Every ticket sold goes directly towards supporting the incredible work of the National Garden Scheme.
As the sanctuary opened in September 2019, the garden has not yet welcomed any visitors on behalf of the National Garden Scheme, therefore this is your chance to discover a truly beautiful, newly flourishing horticultural haven.
Award-winning garden designer and BBC Gardeners’ Question Time panelist, Bunny Guinness, thoughtfully created the garden and helped to bring the planting to life. The oasis surrounds the spinal centre on two sides, ensuring every person spending time in hospital has a view to nature from the ward.
Featuring raised beds to enable people to grow their own fruit and vegetables, beautiful osmanthus trees, a Griffin Glasshouse, potting shed, serpentine rill, a gorgeous magnolia tree with an intriguing history and a unique garden room designed by architect Andrew Wells, there’s a great deal waiting to be explored in Horatio’s Garden Midlands.
Head Gardener, Imogen Jackson, and a host of brilliant volunteers will be there for the occasion and are already looking forward to telling people more about the garden and the difference it makes to people’s lives every single day. They will also be serving homemade teas and refreshments, with all the money raised going towards supporting the charity.
Until then, we’ll be eagerly anticipating your late summer arrival!
