Horatio’s Garden at Salisbury Hospital will be open to the public as part of the National Garden Scheme on Sunday 11th May. The garden was designed by Cleve West, seven-time RHS gold-medal winner who was awarded Best in Show at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2011 and 2012.
The mixed planting has been put together to offer a multi-sensory experience: grasses to catch the wind, herbs to smell and taste, and shrubs and 23 trees for texture and winter structure. Shaggy box balls and rosemary punctuate a looser herbaceous palette, and perennials such as echinacea, foeniculum, aster and the aptly named Aruncus ‘Horatio’ bring texture, colour and scent.
Horatio’s Garden will be open from 2pm to 4pm and products, homemade teas and cakes will be on sale.
