A peaceful garden, from Chelsea flower show is set to be forever-homed in Barrow.
This year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden by Andy Sturgeon, designed for space and calm, has found it’s new ‘home from home’ here with us in Barrow-in-furness.
The Mind Garden, designed by the award-winning gardener in partnership with charity Mind, will be transported from the Chelsea Flower Show all the way up the M6 to Mind in Furness just around the corner.
Making their way to our town are 10 fully grown silver birch trees, a series of sculptural walls, oak curved benches, along with the other plantings from the garden.
Dunelm colleagues from the Barrow branch will help install and maintain the garden throughout its transition.
Work to rehome The Mind Garden is set to begin in June, with the unveiling of the finished garden expected in autumn.
Just like the award winning Maritime Gardens at Maritime Apartments, the collision of wild greenery, urban rock and wood fixtures creates the perfect partnership for grounding peace. A symbol of nature vs nurture and a quiet place to reflect.
Mr Sturgeon, an eight-time RHS Chelsea gold medal winner, hopes the re-homed garden will provide a similar source of comfort and connection for the local community in Barrow.
Karen Dobson, chief executive of Mind in Furness, said: “Mind in Furness has been involved in delivering a range of ecotherapy activities for many years and has been looking to create a Wellbeing Garden for some time.”
