Stephen Welch and Alison Doxey pictured with the Artisan Garden they designed for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016. The Garden Bed a partnership with Asda, was designed by Stephen Welch & Alison Doxey, and built by Frosts Landscapes. To celebrate their 50th birthdays, lifelong friends Alison Doxey and Stephen Welch have joined forces to create this Artisan Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016. Designed to show how easily patients’ beds can be moved into the garden, and demonstrate how this simple concept improves the wellbeing of patients and their families. Stephen and Alison took their inspiration from a garden Stephen designed at Les Bourgs Hospice in Guernsey, providing a view of the garden from a patient’s bed, to show the patient’s perspective. Within the garden, Alison, an accomplished florist, will construct a quilt made from naturally gathered materials for the symbolic patient’s bed. Using 15 meters of plant material, Alison will craft a quilt, weaving and intwining the natural materials to create a quilt to cover the hospice bed inside the garden.
