Get into gardening

We know that visiting National Garden Scheme gardens can often inspire you to want to do more with your own garden or even to try gardening for the first time. But where do you start? Which plants do you choose? How do you look after them?

Autumn colour

We have a lovely selection of gardens across England and Wales that open to show off their beautiful Autumn colour. Enjoy the crispness and splendour of Autumn in a National Garden Scheme garden.

Gardens open by arrangement

Have you found the perfect garden using our garden finder only to realise that you’re busy on the open day? A garden open by arrangement accepts groups of visitors to their garden for a more personalised visit, on a pre-agreed date. Usually, the garden will advertise a range of dates available that they are willing to open so that groups can decide on the most suitable option for them.
