Vote for the Nation’s Favourite Garden
All through spring and summer, you’ve been nominating your favourite gardens that open to visitors for the National Garden Scheme, as part of our competition to find the nation’s favourites. Now, The English Garden with the help of George Plumptre, chief executive of the National Garden Scheme, and competition sponsors, Agriframes and Sisley Garden Tours, a shortlist of superb gardens has been shortlisted from your nominations.
There are 28 shortlisted gardens: four from each of the Scheme’s six regions (South East, South West, Midlands, East, Wales & The Marches and North), along with four public gardens from across the country. This last and newest category is for those gardens that are always open to the public, but donate their takings on designated days to the National Garden Scheme – as opposed to private gardens that open only to visitors for the Scheme.
Now we move on to the second phase of the competition: voting to choose the winners!
There will be one winner for each of the seven categories, along with one overall champion. Visit https://theenglishgarden.co.uk/ngs between now and 30 September to place your vote for your favourite shortlisted garden.
