NGS gardens


There will be no gardens open this year under the National Gardens Scheme – for the first time in 93 years.  The NGS was expected to see 3,700 private gardens open to the public this summer to raise money for nursing charities including Marie Curie and Macmillan.  The Covid-19 crisis and lockdown conditions have meant that this year the scheme has been cancelled, with some instead recording “virtual garden tours” as the next best thing. These can be viewed through the NGS website.
