A Message from our Patron

The spirit and enterprise of Horticap never ceases to amaze and delight me. I am proud to be their patron and urge everyone who knows the therapeutic qualities of gardening to support the sterling work they do. Using gardening as a means of enriching lives is something I have valued all my life; Horticap is living proof that it can transform lives.

Thanks to Belmont Grosvenor for our annual #wreathmaking workshop - we're all #FeelingFestive now. The children were brilliant and our students enjoyed teaching them how to make a wreath. Thanks again and see you next year.
