Award-winning Horatio’s Garden (first picture) was created in 2011 to provide patients at Salisbury’s Duke of Cornwall Spinal Injury Treatment Centre with outdoor space (in this instance, imagined by award-winning landscape designer Cleve West). Plans are now in the pipeline to open a similar garden – designed by James Alexander-Sinclair – later this year at the Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit in Glasgow.

The charity raises funds via an online store – with wares ranging from leather gardening gloves (£18) made in collaboration with Bill Amberg to ceramics by Emma Bridgewater (second picture: large, £20; small, £14) – as well as through events. This year’s fundraising highlights include the charity’s annual summer garden party (which last year raised £24,000), featuring live jazz and flower-themed cocktails, and an exclusive day trip to River Cottage hosted by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
