Explore our Christmas range

In November 2023, the National Garden Scheme announced donations of £3,403,960 to our beneficiary charities – find out more here

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.
