At the 2017 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, our Miracle-Gro'wers "Come to your Senses" Eco-Therapy garden won a Gold Medal, and Best Discovery Exhibit award.

We received so many wonderful comments from the visitors to our garden, many wishing to copy the idea and create their own eco-therapy garden. 

Here are the details of our garden, we would love to see pictures of your garden once you have created it, with such an important message to share - let's spread the word!
