St John’s Hospice’s gardens are a real source of pride for the Hospice. Their peaceful tranquillity are perfect for patients and their families to relax in, and the ever-changing views and the wildlife the garden attracts are exciting year-round. Not only that, but fruit and veg grown by our volunteer gardeners helps to feed patients, staff and patrons of the Courtyard Café, delicious and nutritious fresh food. Fruit and veg, as well as plants and flowers are also available to buy from the Hospice.
