The Garden Bed – a partnership with Asda

Artisan Gardens
The Garden Bed is the work of two lifelong friends, chartered landscape architect Stephen Welch and master florist Alison Doxey.

With a real hospital bed forming the centrepiece, visitors are invited to view the hospice garden through the eyes of the patient. A stunning natural 'quilt' lies across the bed, woven with foliage and flowers by Alison.

A clipped yew hedge gives privacy and a sense of security. Bulbs, perennials and trees offer the viewer much to enjoy and contemplate, while a ceramic water feature missors the floral displays.
