The Morgan Stanley Garden for Great Ormond Street Hospital has been designed to feature at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, before it is sited at its permanent home at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The new garden will provide a much needed, private and reflective space for parents and families of the children undergoing treatment at the hospital. The enclosed nature of the hospital site has shaped and informed the planting and schematics for the garden. Designer Chris Beardshaw is creating a rich, green and verdant woodland scheme, sprinkled with pockets of colourful planting, bursting through the tree canopy and perennial understory.
The planting in the garden provides a plant-rich area of woodland diversity, featuring a wide range of perennials for dappled shade and with a collection of hedges, mixed topiary and mature trees, which all provide a naturally rich environment.
The garden features a reflective water feature and a main structure inspired by a Japanese azumaya (summer house), designed in three interlocking sections; each section framing views of the garden.
