Who we are

Who we are

Since  1927 we’ve been inviting garden owners to open their exceptional gardens to the public for good causes, giving people unique access to some of Britain’s most beautiful, memorable gardens for just the cost of a cup of tea and a slice of cake. Over the last 90 years, we’ve raised over £50 million for nursing charities across the UK, thanks to the warm generosity of our garden owners, volunteers and visitors – a rich blend of generosity that lies at the heart of the National Garden Scheme.
