‘The National Garden Scheme is a remarkable organisation, with such a simple but effective mission.’
We are delighted that some of our gardens in England are reopening. All visitors must pre-purchase tickets on our website for a timed slot at their garden of choice. All funds raised will go to the Help Support Our Nurses campaign. For full details and to see those gardens opening click below.

We’re working with our garden owners to bring you virtual visits to their gardens. From stately acres to town and village gardens we’re working hard to ensure that the garden gates are virtually open in these difficult times. So do enjoy the short films and consider making a donation which will help us to continue supporting our nursing and health beneficiaries.
“I love the National Garden Scheme which has been the most brilliant supporter of Queens Nurses like me. It was founded by the Queens Nursing Institute which makes me very proud. As we battle Coronavirus on the front line in the community, knowing we have their support is a real comfort.”
Liz Alderton, Queen’s Nurse

Our Gardens and Health programme raises awareness of the physical and mental health benefits of gardens and gardening. Read the inspiring stories of our garden owners, whose lives have been transformed by their garden, and virtually visit some gardens that our gardens and health programme have contributed to.
