Love Your Garden: NHS Special

Love Your Garden: NHS Special

We are so thrilled to be involved for our 7th year with ITV’s Love Your Garden. The series kicked off in May with their biggest ever project, to create a garden for The Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.


The inspiration for Alan and his team came from letters written by the hospital’s young patients. Some of these patients were victims of the nearby Manchester Arena bombing; they requested an outdoor space for patients, families and staff to take respite. 


Alan meets the brave youngsters who wrote to him, some with life-threatening conditions and others like Lily Harrison who was treated by the hospital after receiving shrapnel wounds at the Ariana Grande concert just a year ago. He listened to their suggestions and with the rest of the team sets out to create a magical retreat full of thoughtful detail that the whole community can enjoy and be proud of.


The paint used for this special episode of Love Your Garden was from the wonderful, colourful Wood Stain and Protector range. These colours are always a firm favourite for use on children’s play areas.


Also used were the sophisticated Royal Exterior China Clay and its dramatic Black.
