Chelsea Flower Show garden relocated to Isle of Wight Hospice
A garden display from the 2015 Chelsea Flower Show has been relocated to a hospice on the Isle of Wight.
Work began in January to recreate the Royal Bank of Canada garden for patients and families at the Earl Mountbatten hospice in Newport.
The garden was designed by Matthew Wilson with curved structures and flowing water to reflect the theme of water use in gardens.
TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh described it as "absolutely beautiful".
Speaking before performing the opening ceremony, Mr Titchmarsh said: "When you see a garden beautifully crafted for the Chelsea Flower Show, to have one which does translate and transfer to the hospice is a wonderful thing.
"The hospice has the most delightful atmosphere and this garden can only but improve that. What's often forgotten about gardens at hospices is that they are not just respite for patients and relatives, but also for the staff to have a break."
The hard landscaping and large plants were put into storage after Chelsea before work began to relocate the garden on the island, with new locally grown plants added.
The work was carried out by the Greenfingers charity which develops green spaces for children's hospices.
