About Horatio’s Garden Scotland 

Designed by award-winning garden designer and RHS Gardens Judge, James Alexander-Sinclair, Horatio’s Garden Scotland opened in 2015. The garden was the second Horatio’s Garden to be built and was thoughtfully created to support people as they physically and mentally adjust to living with a life-changing spinal cord injury. Everything is of a high quality and the garden is designed to be a home away from home for people facing a long hospital stay far from their loved ones. 

The garden is cleverly designed to bring the sights, sounds and scents of nature to the heart of the hospital and is there for patients, their loved ones and NHS staff to enjoy whenever they like. As such, the haven features a contemporary garden room designed by Andy Steel and a gorgeous glasshouse, enabling people to spend time amidst nature all year-round. 

Featuring a woodland garden awash with striking seasonal blooms and framed by a beautiful collection of Betula pendula trees, as well as artfully planted borders, a charming courtyard garden, garden pods and much more, there’s plenty to explore in this thoughtful garden. With so many pollen and nectar rich plants, it’s a haven for all kinds of insects, whilst birds are encouraged with nesting boxes and fruitful trees.

The garden is an ever-evolving, thriving project and during the Open Day you will have the opportunity to meet both the Head Gardener, Sallie Sillars, as well as our enthusiastic volunteer team who help to nurture the garden and support people using the sanctuary. Everyone will be waiting to warmly welcome you and will only be too happy to share more of the Horatio’s Garden Scotland story.
