Newson Health Menopause Garden
Every year an exciting collection of gardens come to life in a celebration of how imagination and creativity can transform your outdoor space. It’s an unbeatable way to get ideas for your own garden. Show Gardens are judged to the highest standards of design, planting and inspiration. Find out more about the Show Garden below!
Designed by Ruth Gwynn
Women’s health takes centre stage at this year’s Show as leading menopause expert, Dr. Louise Newson, joins forces with award-winning garden designer, Ruth Gwynn, to create the Newson Health Menopause Show Garden. The walk-through Show Garden reflects Newson Health’s ethos of inclusive and accessible menopause support for everyone. It is designed to evoke feelings of community, creating a safe, tranquil and comfortable space for women to reflect on their health and to discover the nutritional and physical power of plants for mental health and wellbeing. There will be interactive ‘symptom stations’ exploring different aspects of menopause and perimenopause, with clinicians and experts on hand with information and advice about diet and nutrition, the wide-reaching benefits of gardening, exercise, mindfulness and mental wellbeing. Ruth Gwynn, who co-designed Frances Tophill’s Platinum Award winning and ‘Best In Show’ Show Garden at last year’s BBC Gardeners’ World Live, has selected plants for the Newson Health Menopause Garden which will create a visually enriching yet calm atmosphere. There will be an area for relaxation, a yoga corner and also an area for outdoor cooking.
After BBC Gardeners’ World Live, elements of the Newson Health Menopause Garden will be relocated to various local communities by Newson Health.
