Virtual garden visits

In the current Coronavirus crisis, when our beautiful gardens are closed, the National Garden Scheme and its garden owners are working to bring the gardens to life for you with virtual garden visits, gardening tips and great stories. With our gardens closed, our nursing and health beneficiaries face an 80% reduction in our support at a time when they need it most. So if you enjoy this content please consider making a donation to help us to help them.
