Horticultural Therapy

Lead by Katie Gardner, ellenor's weekly Gardening Group will suit all abilities and involve planting bulbs and seeds and taking cuttings, as well as activities like flower pressing and a regular houseplant surgery.

The group will also have fun identifying plants and other interesting items brought in from the garden and country walks. 

Most of the activities will be indoors so that the class is accessible to all, but there will be some opportunity to explore the hospice garden.

Horticultural therapy aims to improve both physical and mental wellbeing. Therapists, like Katie, help people get involved in gardening and the natural world as a way to boost their confidence, and introducing new skills.


Katie has more than 10 years’ experience as a jobbing gardener, is RHS trained, and has completed a course with horticultural therapy charity Thrive. She also walks her 10-year-old terrier Doris daily, foraging and taking photos.
