County organisers (and their teams) play a vital role in finding new high-quality gardens at a local level as well as encouraging existing garden owners to continue opening their gardens. The impact proactive recruitment has can mean increased garden income, increased popularity of our gardens and increased awareness of the National Garden Scheme locally.

To support you in your garden recruitment, you can find additional information about the motivations of our garden owners and the meaning of a quality garden, as well as a package of tools and best practice by downloading the ‘New Garden Recruitment Support Pack‘ below. So don’t be timid, you too can find new gardens and encourage them to open.
