Why we support the National Garden Scheme

As plantsmen we appreciate the work the National Garden Scheme does in encouraging gardening, and especially in pointing out the health aspects of gardening. But primarily we want to support the great causes that the charity funds each year.

Why we support the National Garden Scheme

A little plant company have chosen to support the NGS as we firmly believe that it is a charity that encompasses such a wide range of beneficiaries. With a background in healthcare, I have now retrained as a gardener. I currently work at Bichfield tower, Belsay, Northumberland, where the garden opens its gates once a year for the NGS.  At Bichfield we support an apprentice on the WFGA scheme. Through these different roles, I have seen first hand the difference that this fantastic charity has made to peoples lives.

Why we support the National Garden Scheme

It is great to support such a significant and charitable organisation whilst bringing enjoyment to those who visit our garden and nursery. It is also beneficial in raising awareness of our organic gardening and composting methods – altogether, it’s an advantageous situation for everyone involved!
