Belgravia in Bloom’s official charity partner for 2024’s free flower festival is Horatio’s Garden.

Winners of Best in Show at the 2023 RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Horatio’s Garden nurtures the wellbeing of people after spinal injury in vibrant garden sanctuaries in NHS spinal injury centres.

The charity will be creating a vintage-themed display in Newson's Yard on the Pimlico Road as part of this year’s floral festival, which is taking place from 20 to 27 May with a Floral Fun & Games theme. Featuring vintage games and bunting, Horatio's Garden's display will have a retro-feel. 

Horatio's Garden is also hosting two talks in Newson's Yard during the festival. From 2pm to 3pm on Tuesday 21 May, Ashley Edwards, a Gardeners' Question Time panellist, will be answering your gardening questions. 

From 12pm to 12.30pm on Wednesday 22 May, garden designer Butter Wakefield will be hosting a flower demonstration.  

Dr Olivia Chapple, Founder and Chair of Trustees at Horatio’s Garden says: “We are delighted to be this year’s charity partner of Belgravia in Bloom and join this fantastic community of vibrant flowers and creative expression. Following our Best in Show garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show last year, it’s a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the importance of gardens and green spaces in physical and mental health and support our mission to have a thriving Horatio’s Garden in every spinal injury centre in the UK.”

Jane MacDiarmid at Grosvenor says: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Horatio’s Garden for this year’s Belgravia in Bloom. Their mission to create beautiful and accessible gardens for patients with spinal injuries is deeply inspiring. We are excited to bring delight and play to visitors with this year’s installations and displays, while raising awareness for this incredible charity."
