The UCARE Garden

Show Gardens

The UCARE Garden, sponsored by Champagne Lanson International, Solar Clear UK Ltd and CED Stone Group, is inspired by Broughton Castle, a fortified manor house near Banbury in Oxfordshire and home to Lord and Lady Saye and Sele, patrons of the charity. It has been designed to display the beautiful pink UCARE tulip, Tulipa ‘Caresse’, a symbol of hope in the treatment and care of patients with urological cancers.

Inspired by the castle’s magnificent oak panelled drawing room, crenellated walls and elaborate 19th-century Ladies Garden, the design reflects the structure and setting of this historic family home. Like the Hornton Ironstone from which Broughton Castle is built, the heavy oak benches and robust steel water feature were chosen for their strength and longevity.

The bright, colourful planting has been carefully chosen to complement Tulipa ‘Caresse’. Lilac and lavender hues sit among dark purples and rich copper tones, while orange accents mix playfully with the pink tulips scattered throughout the planting.
