Visitors and School Children in our Garden

The "COME TO YOUR SENSES" Eco-therapy Garden was created for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and invited visitors to come and take a walk through and experience the power of eco-therapy for themselves.

Come to your Senses

The Garden

Starting with a walk through a re-creation of a modern family home, we highlighted many of the modern day concerns and stresses that children face, often on a daily basis.

Back of House into Garden

After passing through the house you will find, and need, the relaxing garden space. As you walk down the garden path we introduce you to each of your 5 main senses individually and invite you to slow down and really experience the garden around you. 

Take time really look at the different colours shapes all around you, smell just a small sample of the amazing scents nature can provide us with. Feel the various textures on plants, spongy leaves on succulent plants like Sedum, ridged rough stems like the Euonymus alatus and of course the lovely soft furry leaves of the Stachys (lambs ears). Stop a moment and listen to all the sounds you can hear.... birds singing, water running, wind blowing through leaves. Finally, don't forget to taste the abundance of flavours plants can offer you, from the refreshing crisp mint flavours to the sweet juicy strawberry fruits. Get outside, let your mind and body slow down and just relax and absorb the wonders of nature.
