Where can you visit this garden after the Show?

The garden will be relocated in its entirety to Sue Ryder’s St John’s Hospice in Bedford, where it will provide a dedicated space for grieving. 

Not only will the garden benefit inpatients who are at the end of their lives, but will also be a Grief Kind place of solace and reflection for their loved ones, as well as welcoming visitors from the local community. It is designed to be fully accessible to wheelchairs and hospital beds.
