Discover the joy of gardens in Gardens and Health Week

Each year our Little Yellow Book of Gardens and Health marks Gardens and Health Week and this year we’re celebrating the joy that gardens bring to so many!

From gardens built in healthcare settings and top tips from our garden owners to ponds designed for wildlife and community spaces there’s so much to enjoy.

King Charles III to continue as Patron of the National Garden Scheme

We are delighted to announce that His Majesty the King will continue as Patron of the National Garden Scheme.
His Majesty was Patron of the National Garden Scheme as The Prince of Wales from 2002 and we are extremely grateful that he will continue in the role as King Charles III.

A record £3,403,960 donated to some of the UK’s best-loved nursing and health charities

This record donation represents a superlative achievement by the garden owners and county team volunteers who together worked tirelessly to host open days at 3,389 gardens across the year.  

Commenting, National Garden Scheme Chairman Rupert Tyler said: The contribution of the charities that we support has been increasingly vital. Their reach and impact, in cancer and end of life care, in community health and nursing and in particular areas such as people living with Parkinson’s, is immense and we are proud to be a major long-term supporter of them all. 

The long-term support of the National Garden Scheme has been fundamental to our operations over the last 26 years, and we’re proud to have a partner like them by our side throughout the changing times
Marie Curie CEO, Matthew Reed
