The new Robertson Family Roof Garden at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary is now open and a few of our members enjoyed a visit earlier today.

This “pioneering” £600,000 green space for patients of the north-east’s flagship hospital was opened just a few weeks ago and access is through the doors located above the accident and emergency department.

Already the green space – which was designed by award-winning gardener Professor Nigel Dunnett and funded by donations – is impressing patients, and has had a great response from families and staff alike.

The garden is lined by wooden seating and features Chinese Dogwood trees, a water feature, plants, bushes, shelter and a living wall.
