Where can you visit this garden after the Show?

The garden will be relocated to form the heart of a new, permanent Horatio’s Garden for patients and staff at the Princess Royal Spinal Injuries Centre in Sheffield. The regional centre of excellence is the second largest in the UK and cares for patients from a wide geographical area including Yorkshire, East Anglia and the East Midlands.

The garden will be run by the charity who will nurture it and keep it to a Chelsea standard for years to come. The charity’s team will provide garden therapy and creative activities in the garden to enhance patients’ recovery and well-being.

The garden is expected to open in 2024 and will be the eighth garden in the Horatio’s Garden family.
