Meningitis Now - Futures Garden

We offer you an insider's glimpse of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show gardens that have their roots in Kent, Sussex and Surrey - Sponsor: St John's Hospice - Designer: Jekka McVicar - Contractor: Crocus (Surrey)

Conversations with doctors and care professionals about what we can do to improve our health within the context of gardens and plants, as well as by the healing power of plants inspired this garden. The garden is a small tranquil space with 'wellness' at its heart, and will feature plants known to be beneficial to the health and wellbeing of society.

It will be a place of quiet reflection, which seeks to highlight the important relationship between medicine and nature whilst providing rehabilitation to all the senses. The experience of natural calm whilst walking along the lavender-lined path, toward the water feature, is enhanced by a pair of benches where one can sit, surrounded by scented plants in a place of stillness.
