Head Gardener Imogen recently lent her expertise to The English Garden magazine, in a beautiful feature spanning four pages entitled ‘The Soul Garden’. 

As a specialist in therapeutic horticulture, Imogen is an expert in curating and growing plants to calming effect. In the piece, which featured stunning horticultural photography, Imogen enumerated her top ten plants to inspire readers to create a garden with long term therapeutic effects for both the mind and the body. 

All the plants Imogen selected are renowned for having immersive, multi-sensory and aesthetic qualities and each one can be found in Horatio’s Garden Midlands, including Imogen’s favourite Rosa ‘Darcey Bussell’. 

With The English Garden being a trusted source of inspiration on how to look after and design the perfect garden, it’s wonderful to see such an elegant publication actively encouraging people to harness the therapeutic power of nature for the benefit of their wellbeing. 

We are delighted that the magazine approached Head Gardener Imogen to offer her and the charity’s insights into the world of social and therapeutic horticulture and if you would like to read the full article, you’ll find it on page 71 of this October’s issue.
