The Exciting News Just Keeps On Coming During Our Busiest Week of The Year!

We’re delighted to announce the 7th Horatio’s Garden is now fully open! Having worked tirelessly with Horatio’s Garden on their previous projects to ensure hospital patients and visitors can enjoy the benefits of these beautiful gardens, we’re thrilled about the launch of yet another great space.

We have been absolutely rushed off our feet recently, as last month we had our busiest week of the year, with RHS Chelsea Flower Show in full swing, and Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland at Musgrave Park Hospital, Belfast  also announcing that they’re officially opening the garden for the first time! 

Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland 

Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland opened earlier this year, at the heart of the Spinal Cord Injuries Unit (SCIU) in Musgrave Park Hospital in Belfast. Now in full bloom, Horatio’s Gardens’ 7th space of its kind, is supporting patients with spinal injuries across the country as well as people staying in the Amputee Rehabilitation Unit.

This stunning garden was designed by Andy Sturgeon – the acclaimed garden designer with nine RHS Gold medals to his name. His approach focuses on a perfect partnership of traditional materials and with contemporary styling. Griffin Glasshouses are over the moon to feature in such a prestigious garden design. 

We hope that the garden will continue to support and delight thousands of spinal injury patients and their visitors in Northern Ireland. 

Who are Horatio’s Garden?

Horatio’s Garden are a long-time partner of ours, and one we value immeasurably due to their incredible work. Horatio’s Garden nurtures the wellbeing of people after spinal injury in beautiful, vibrant sanctuaries within the heart of NHS spinal injury centres. They bring together some of the industry’s leading garden designers together to create accessible garden havens to promote rehabilitation after spinal injuries. 

At RHS Chelsea 2023, we helped play a part in fundraising for Horatio’s Garden, by donating a painting by “the Wonky Artist”, Rachel Smith to them – which enabled them to raise a staggering £50,000. This would help Horatio’s Garden continue to provide beautiful, accessible gardens for patients in NHS Spinal Injury Centres across the UK.
