National Gardens Scheme

ngs2

By Visiting a garden which opens for the National Gardens Scheme you can help make a difference …

3,800 gardens, many of them privately owned, will open on behalf of The National Gardens Scheme in 2015.

NGS Gardens welcome group visits

Many gardens that open for the NGS warmly welcome group visits and they provide the ideal opportunity for your society or group to visit a garden at a time that is convenient to you.

Gardens which welcome group visits are easily identified, just look for the coach symbol in The Yellow Book or on the NGS website at www.ngs.org.uk .

Sometimes whole villages open their gardens and these are also popular for group visits. Group Organisers may contact Garden Owners or NGS County Organisers by telephone to discuss arrangements.

What we do

Thanks to the generosity and support of garden owners, visitors and our volunteer team in 2014 we donated £2.5m to charity.

In the last ten years we have donated over £22m to help nursing, caring and garden based charities.

We keep overheads low, so most of the money raised from garden openings goes straight to our beneficiary charities.

Donations made by the NGS are ‘unrestricted’, which means the money can be invested in areas which these charities consider vital to their future development, and which might prove difficult to fund from other sources.

Who do we support?

In 2014 the NGS made donations to Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Carers Trust, Hospices UK, The Queen’s Nursing Institute, Perennial, National Trust and Parkinson’s UK.

In short, every visitor to an NGS garden is making an essential contribution to someone’s life, and especially to those who really need care and support during
