The Garden

One hundred years of garden tradition have provided St Joseph's Hospice with an award-winning garden to suit the needs of visitors, patients and staff alike. Intended for both recreation and contemplation, seven distinct garden areas provide plenty of interest for visitors.

Completion of major building works has resulted in a completely different shape for the south end of the gardens, providing contrasting areas of deep shade and full sun.

Traditional perennials jostle with half-hardy tropicals in the borders, their colours supported by annual bedding schemes. Features include sculptures by Matt Caines and the 'Oasis' water feature in the front courtyard.

Head gardener: Jocelyn Armitage
