A CALM and uplifting show garden at RHS Tatton Park, designed as a quiet hospital retreat for patients on the transplant waiting list, is blooming thanks to a peat free helping hand from Dalefoot Composts
“The Waiting List” has been designed by former transplant nurse Alison Galer to raise awareness of the organ donation register and Lakeland Gold compost for the peat free garden has been donated by Dalefoot Composts. Situated as if in a quiet pocket within the grounds of a busy hospital, away from the clinic setting, the garden allows the patient and nurse to sit and talk surrounded by beautiful planting. Burbling rills represent the process of dialysis along with the clear flowing water that illustrates the life transplantation gives. A skyward-looking sculpture by John O’Connor gives hope for the future.
