All offer unrivalled horticultural delights and quality garden visits in a wide-range of inspirational gardens. From spacious country house acres, cottage gardens and tiny rooftop plots to city gardens and allotments there is something for everyone.

And, with almost 600 new gardens to explore in the year ahead it’s never been a better time to plan for garden visiting year!

If you prefer your garden listings in a book, you can pre-order the Garden Visitor’s Handbook 2020 in our shop – and it will be with you, hot off the press, in February. With detailed descriptions of every garden, stunning photos, and handy maps and calendars, all of the information you could possibly need to visit a beautiful garden is right at your fingertips! If you want to pre-order the book for a garden-loving friend as a Christmas gift (or for any occasion) you can also choose to receive a printable voucher.

And of course, there is always Find a Garden on our website or the National Garden Scheme app, where all the details of gardens open for the National Garden Scheme in 2020 are available now, so you can start planning your perfect day out!

We look forward to welcoming you to a beautiful garden in 2020.
