NGS – National Open Gardens Scheme
There are few people who have a positive experience in a pandemic but with so many people being locked down, we have seen unprecedented visitors, page views and income on THE Gardening WEBSITE and so we want to re-direct some of that income to some of the nations best known charities who at the other end of the spectrum, have been hit so badly and what better way than through the NGS – National Open Garden Scheme which thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors has donated over £60 million to charity since 1927
NGS – our nominated Charity for 2021
Some NGS gardens, (those with appropriate space), have been able to remain open and you can still visit the NGS website and enjoy online talks, plan your future visits by searching online through 3,600 beautiful gardens; watch a virtual garden visit  or purchase the 2021 Garden Visitor’s Handbook .
And with all that time spent in your own garden and everything you have bought from THE Gardening WEBSITE (thank you) you might consider opening your own garden and making it 3,601 gardens for people to enjoy !

Gardens and Health Week 2021: Gardens are good for you

The National Garden Scheme marked its annual  Gardens & Health Week in May with the launch of comprehensive proof that gardens are good for you. Our  interactive, digital booklet  entitled  The Little Yellow Book of Gardens and Health  is packed with  stories and  case studies from garden owners, garden visitors  and beneficiaries  who have found solace and  improved health and  wellbeing by immersing themselves  in  nature.

In her foreword, National Garden Scheme Ambassador, Rachel de  Thame  says: “In a year like no other the confinement, the anxiety and, in some cases, real tragedy has shown just how important gardens are to everyone’s physical health and mental wellbeing.”
