Still plenty of colour in September
September is upon us already but there is still plenty of colour in the garden. The two gardens opening for the National Garden Scheme this month are a joy and not to be missed. At High House, Shipdham you will find a delightful plantsman’s garden, with traditional shrub borders, perennials and vegetable garden. There is an exciting mix of exotic and tropical at Waldemar Avenue where garden owner Sonja feels that “To make a garden is to believe in tomorrow”. Both gardens will also have inexpensive plants for sale.

About National Garden Scheme
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, and raises impressive amounts of money for some of the UK’s best-loved nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.
Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors we have donated more than £67 million to our beneficiary charities, and in 2022 made donations of £3.11 million. Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, we are now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and our beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.
The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, we launched our annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic. Our funding also supports the training of gardeners and offers respite to horticultural workers who have fallen on difficult times.
