Horatio’s Garden is a charity that creates and lovingly cares for gardens in NHS spinal injury centres. Leading garden designers develop the stunning sanctuaries for patients and their family and friends, creating an environment that becomes an integral part of their lives and care while spending many months in hospital. Scotland’s Horatio’s Garden has transformed the view from the wards and communal rooms. The planting encourages birds, butterflies and bees, adding a dimension of interest for patients. A stunning courtyard garden has become the heart of the spinal unit, giving an oasis of calm in the clinical environment. Sheltered pods allow use in bad weather while outer therapy gardens allow patients to grow plants and vegetables. There is also an area for children to play during long visits.
