St Ann’s Hospice is one of the oldest and largest adult hospices in the UK. This year, we’re celebrating 50 years of caring for patients and their families in Greater Manchester.  

Manchester leads the way in so many areas – and as a hospice we are proud to lead the way too, providing world-class care from right here in this amazing city.  

Our garden in The Manchester Flower Show has been created by a team of our volunteer gardeners, creative therapists and Girlguiding volunteers under the direction of hospice supporter and garden designer Maria Stripling, and visual artist and designer, Lynne Duric. 

Come and see us in King’s Street, Manchester

Set amongst perennial planting in raised beds crafted from the pallets used to deliver PPE in the past year, the garden also reveals some little-known aspects of hospice care. This is a garden that shows the depth of the care provided to all who pass through the hospice’s doors. 

Our garden is only made possible thanks to our generous supporters:
