View our snowdrop gardens

In the light of the deterioration in the national Coronavirus situation and the government’s overriding message that people should stay at home, we have consulted with the relevant garden owners and agreed that the small number of openings due to take place in January are either cancelled or postponed. Please click here for our updated full statement.


As you can see below, there are a number of ways you can enjoy and support the National Garden Scheme throughout this difficult time.
