Before planning a garden trip, all visitors should check our website for garden visiting details, such as accessibility, whether dogs are permitted and if refreshments and plants sales will be available.
You can also support our fundraising by hosting a Great British Garden Party between 4th and 12th September. Sign up, invite your guests, and enjoy celebrating your garden to raise funds for vital nursing and health charities. When launching the Great British Garden Party, National Garden Scheme President, Mary Berry, said: “We’re inviting everyone; it doesn’t matter whether your garden is large or small, tidy or untidy – it’s a place for enjoyment. This celebratory event gives us all an opportunity to share our gardens whilst raising funds for vital nursing and health charities. Your garden party could be afternoon tea and cakes, prosecco by candlelight, a coffee morning and book swap or even a plant and produce sale by the front gates – the choice is yours and everyone can get involved.” To learn more about hosting an event, click here.
