The sun was shining for the RHS Chelsea Flower show press day earlier this week. One garden in particular bloomed particularly brightly, with the 'Finding Our Way: An NHS Tribute Garden' getting plenty of attention.

The garden celebrates the tireless work of NHS staff, as well as commemorating all key worker efforts throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Designed by Naomi Ferrett-Cohen for the University of Oxford and the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH), the garden came to fruition following conversations between Naomi and Professor John Frater, an Infectious Diseases consultant at the University of Oxford and OUH, following their collaboration on a previous garden in 2018.

We're also delighted to announce that the garden has been awarded a silver medal in the Sanctuary Gardens category, and you can vote for the garden in the People's Choice category too.

Katy Mimpress, Matron at the Emergency Department at the John Radcliffe Hospital, and Ade Adegboyega, Ward Sister for the John Warin Ward, went along for the day to visit the garden and experience it for themselves.
