The Start in Salford Garden

Back to Back Gardens
This garden illustrates the work of Start in Salford, a creative therapy charity that provides various creative pursuits to support mental health.

Central to the garden is a patio area with seating, designed to be a space for drawing, painting or weaving. This central hub is surrounded by beautiful plants in bright and warm colours representing light and wellbeing.

Herbaceous perennials including penstemon, achillea, verbena and rudbeckia feature and have been chosen to represent happiness and wellbeing.
