Our garden is a wonderful hidden gem on the outskirts of the city, designed to be a relaxing space and give therapeutic benefit to hospice patients. You’ll get to see:

  • Vegetable beds planted by patients and volunteers
  • The ‘Forget-Me-Not Woods’ sown in memory of loved ones
  • Rockeries built from original stones recycled from a derelict building on the site.
  • Our beautiful pond and water feature
  • A wildlife area complete with bug hotel made by patients
  • ‘The Old Man’ – our magnificent protected copper beech tree, which takes pride of place in the centre of the garden and is thought to be more than 250 years old.

There’ll also be plenty of activities and entertainment to get involved with on the day, including:

  • Nature trail
  • Notts rocks
  • Giant Jenga
  • Planting demonstrations
  • Plants for sale
  • Wooden garden accessories for sale, made by members of Daybrook Men in Sheds
  • Live performances from Mapperley Ukulele Group
  • Photography competition – you could have your photograph featured in the BBC Gardeners’ World 2019 calendar, and win prizes from WOLF-Garten!

Refreshments will also be available.

Dogs welcome.
