The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) recently published a new article focussing on Horatio’s Garden Salisbury and how the charity has grown since 2012.
The RHS originally featured our Salisbury garden in their member’s magazine The Garden back in 2017, when it was one of only two gardens, the other being Horatio’s Garden Scotland. With gardens now open in Stoke Mandeville and Oswestry, the RHS have decided to draw their audience back into the Horatio’s Garden story.
The feature emphasises how important all the gardens are in supporting patients and their loved ones and how it was vital to those spending time in the Duke of Cornwall Spinal Treatment Centre that the garden be ‘accessible’ and ‘beautiful’. Using the Salisbury garden as a case study, the article illustrates how each garden is thoughtfully designed by leading garden designers and the transformative impact of these stunning sanctuaries. Throughout the article there are many wonderful quotes from both Salisbury garden designer, Cleve West, and Co-founder and Chair of Trustees, Dr Olivia Chapple, who both offer readers a unique insight into the world of Horatio’s Garden.
“This has such an amazing impact every day, and I am doing it all on Horatio’s behalf. I know that he would have done this.” – Dr Olivia Chapple, Co-founder & Chair of Trustees.
