National Gardens Scheme (its 90th year)

 National Gardens Scheme Piecemeal, the nursery owner’s tiny private garden, just 3 miles from Whatton House, is usually open annually to the public under the National Gardens Scheme. See www.ngs.org.uk for further details and images.

However, please note the garden is open only by arrangement in 2017. Groups of between 4 and 10 are welcome. It is possible to accommodate larger groups but please contact me to discuss.

Light refreshments provided for a small additional charge.

Plants from the nursery are available for sale and a percentage of takings given to the National Gardens Scheme for the charities the Scheme supports, including the following:

  • Macmillan Cancer Support
  • Marie Curie
  • Hospice UK
  • Carers Trust
  • Parkinsons UK
