In February half-term Cathy Davie, host of Mossrigg Quiet Garden in W. Yorkshire, opened her garden to run ‘Found space’.

Sue Nightingale hosted a Quiet Garden at her home in Yorkshire for 17 years, involving hospital chaplains, parish groups and the occasional artist. She has visited Quiet Gardens across the world, and continues to support Quiet Garden hosts in the Yorkshire area and beyond. Here, in conversation with Philip Roderick, Sue reflects on starting her own Quiet Garden and her visits to Quiet Gardens around the world.
