The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew has generously offered the National Garden Scheme the rare privilege of hosting a glittering soiree in its iconic Temperate House. Join Dame Mary Berry, for this glamorous fundraising event on Thursday 26th May.
Explore our interactive, digital booklet The Little Yellow Book of Gardens and Health. With a foreword from our Patron HRH The Prince of Wales, it’s packed with stories and case studies that celebrate gardens and cement the long-held belief that gardens really are good for you!
Dame Mary Berry, President of the National Garden Scheme and the Nation’s undisputed Queen of Cakes, is championing the Great British Garden Party as it enters its third, delicious year in 2022.
To launch the National Garden Scheme’s new season, Chief Executive George Plumptre selects some of his garden highlights for the year ahead. From seaside idylls and historic gems to small gardens that inspire and delight, there’s a lot to get excited about in our 2022 garden portfolio.
For the first time since the National Garden Scheme was founded in 1927, private gardens across six counties in Northern Ireland are being included in the 3,500 gardens that open for charity.
The National Garden Scheme is delighted to be a Friend of The Queen’s Green Canopy, a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”. In partnership with the Woodland Trust we’ve put together information about which tree to choose for your garden and how to plant it.
Despite the ongoing restrictions and uncertainty that continued throughout the early months of 2021, severely curtailing garden opening activities, the National Garden Scheme has announced donations of over £3 million to its beneficiary charities.
Commenting, Chairman Rupert Tyler said: “At a time when the collective activities and contributions of our beneficiaries in supporting the national endeavour continued to put unbearable pressure on many aspects of their work, we are delighted to be able to continue our support in such a meaningful way.”
