Memorial garden

Hi my name is Alan Silvester,  February this year me and my wife lost our son to tragic accident at school, we had some people donate some money, plants and garden furniture. With that in mind we decided too turn our little grassed garden into a peaceful area so we could go and find peace when we just need that little chill time. The reason I am messaging you is I was wondering if you may like too use it on your website as we are super proud of what we've done and wanted to show how a run down garden has now changed into a permanent place for us too go and relax. Thank you for your time regards Mr A Silvester (also I am a first time gardener)

    Silvester: what a wonderful thing to do, I'm just so sorry that you were put in the situation that needed it.

    This forum is run and moderated by Gardeners World staff members but chances are not the journalist type editor teams you would want to speak too. Mainly on here there are lots of ordinary people and new gardeners just like us.

    Hopefully it will be spotted though.

    I suggest you pop an email to the following addresses (I don't have a copy of the magazine to hand to check out addresses they have in that you could try).

    It is very heartwarming to hear that you have found the strength to make something so special and positive. I would love to see the haven that you have made so I hope Gardener's World will be interested in sharing your creation. 

    Keep strong and take care. 

    My garden and I live in South Wales.
