As a new gardening season dawns, put your best foot forward and join us for Marie Curie’s exciting challenge – Step into Spring!

Simply walk 10,000 steps every day this March as part of the Great Daffodil Appeal – and ask you friends and family to sponsor you. Step into Spring is great way to feel good, improve your fitness and do something amazing for families living with a terminal illness.

We have been supporting Marie Curie for over twenty years, and to help you put a spring in your step, we’ve listed all our gardens open in March – so you can reach your 10,000 steps a day in some of Britain’s most beautiful gardens.
