The Vale of Glamorgan
Rosamund’s garden is an unexpected jewel next to the sea, with beautiful views overlooking the Bristol channel. Her garden perfectly combines both the formal and informal. Whilst the front of the house features a rose and clematis pergola, herbaceous borders and terraced lawns, these give way to great sweeps of grass enlivened by carpets of bluebells and spring bulbs. The valley her garden tumbles down is protected by a belt of woodland, lending incredible structure to this very special place.
Horatio’s Garden is a key beneficiary of the National Garden Scheme, therefore by simply opening her garden Rosamund will be supporting two causes which are close to her heart.
Now that the capital appeal for Horatio’s Garden Cardiff has begun, the National Garden Scheme are expected to soon be committing funding to our sixth project, which is due to open at University Hospital, Llandough in summer 2021. This is because in March 2019, the organisation pledged to support Horatio’s Garden in their vision to have a thriving garden in all 11 NHS spinal injury centres across the UK. In addition, the National Garden Scheme have also donated £255,000 to help us to create and care for the beautiful gardens we have already opened.
We are enormously grateful to Rosamund and to everyone who opens their garden in support of the Scheme.
