The Horatio’s Garden stand at the Chelsea Flower Show is being sponsored by Nelsons for the second year running, after last year’s award-winning presence successfully helped raise awareness and funds for the company’s charity work.

Evidence has shown that gardens can have a positive effect on a person’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and the Horatio’s Garden team are working to harnesses this and create beautiful, therapeutic outdoor spaces at NHS spinal injury centres to help aid patients’ recovery, all with the help of Nelsons. 

Olivia Chapple, chair of trustees at Horatio’s Garden said: “After speaking to so many people at last year’s show, we knew we wanted to be here again, so, thanks to our generous sponsor Nelsons, we have an even bigger and better stand! Come and visit us on the Eastern Avenue.”

Nelsons chairman Robert Wilson added: “We are delighted to support Horatio’s Garden again, their projects can make a real difference in a patients’ recovery and their use of nature is inspiring.”
