The National Gardens Scheme

Hi,

A quick mention for the National Gardens Scheme. This is a nationwide event for private and public gardens, that can be visited all year round. An entrance fee is charged, which goes to charity. There are booklets available from larger libraries, maybe small ones too, but I can’t confirm that. They are produced for each County, the Surrey edition is below.

These booklets have a calendar of open days, admission prices and directions to individual properties.
