Greenfingers’ work has begun on the recreation of the 2015 Chelsea Flower Show garden designed by Matthew Wilson at the Earl Mountbatten Hospice on the Isle of Wight.

Earl Mountbatten was chosen as the proud recipient of the 2015 Royal Bank of Canada show garden in recognition of its work developing services for children and their families on the Isle of Wight. The relocated garden will form part of the hospice?s offering to young patients, giving them an outdoor space in which to relax.

Emma Hanford, garden projects manager for Greenfingers, commented: ?We are delighted work is now underway on-site to recreate the stunning Chelsea Flower Show garden here at the Earl Mountbatten Hospice. To see this beautiful garden rebuilt here will be extremely rewarding, particularly as it will be such as lovely outdoor space for everyone to enjoy.?

Nigel Hartley, CEO at the hospice, said: ?We are all so pleased to see the Chelsea garden beginning to take shape at the hospice. As I have said before, this garden is for the island, so we are hoping it will be a reason for many to come and visit us, enjoying the garden as well as the rest of the facilities in the John Cheverton Centre.?
