Dyslexia Garden in RHS Chelsea Flower Show
RHS Chelsea Flower Show | RHS Gardening
This garden highlights some of the charitable work carried out by the Dyslexia Research Trust, analysing how the brain processes visual information differently depending on its colour.
The garden depicts the barrier to learning that reading can be to dyslexia sufferers. A mosaic-style path leads from the side of the garden with white planting, through an opening in a natural stone wall partly blocked by books, to blue and yellow planting on the other side.
A beautiful seat beside a blue crystal water feature offers a tranquil place to sit and read, whilst reflecting on achievements in overcoming dyslexia.
