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 beautiful installation in Belgravia as part of this year’s floral festival, which is taking place from 20 to 27 May with a Floral Fun & Games theme, a nod to this year’s summer of sporting events. 

Belgravia’s world-famous florists, including Neill Strain, Moyses Stevens and Judith Blacklock, will be creating stunning floral displays across Belgravia for the festival. 

And the neighbourhood’s boutiques and restaurants will be hosting floral-themed events, offers, menus, cocktails and unique experiences

New for 2024, Belgravia in Bloom is working alongside the Royal Horticultural Society to provide guidance on creating more sustainable displays.    

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.”
