Easter Garden – Salisbury Cathedral

20th March 2024

Final touches have been made to the Easter garden outside Salisbury Cathedral.

Three crosses are mounted behind a symbolic tomb that stands among an array of Mediterranean plants – including rosemary, laurel, olive and santolina – reminiscent of the landscape and story of Jesus.

The man behind the garden is award-winning designer Andy McIndoe, winner of 25 consecutive gold medals at RHS Chelsea Flower Show and the prestigious Veitch Memorial Medal (one of the Royal Horticultural Society’s highest accolades) in 2017.

The tomb and wooden crosses were made in the cathedral works yard.

The new Easter garden will stay in place until Pentecost on May 19.
