The Florence Nightingale Garden – A Celebration of Modern Nursing by Robert Myers – RHS Chelsea 2020

This year we worked with the Burdett Trust for Nursing on a garden to celebrate the bicentenary of Florence Nightingale’s birth and raise the profile of nursing as a profession. Designed by Robert Myers and built by Bowles & Wyer, the garden was designed to celebrate Florence Nightingale’s contribution to modern-day nursing using architectural design and modern, sustainable materials to represent her enduring reforms in hospital construction and vibrant planting to highlight the importance of green spaces for health and recovery.  With the cancellation of RHS Chelsea 2020, it is hoped that the garden will return to the show next year.
