UK National Gardens Scheme 

With warm spring sunshine forecast for most of the UK this Easter holiday, many people will be out and about visiting gardens and many of the gardens will be taking part in the National Gardens Scheme (NGS).

He showed me lilies for my hair
And blushing roses for my brow
He led me through his garden fair
Where all his golden pleasures grow.

From "How Sweet I Roam'd" by William Blake.

The NGS registers nearly 3,500 gardens (mostly private) that are open to the public, in order to raise money for charity; over 530 new gardens have joined the scheme this year.

In the ten years since 1997, more than £15 million has been raised for nursing, gardening and caring charities.
