National Gardens Scheme

 National Gardens Scheme Piecemeal, the nursery owner’s tiny, private walled garden, just 3 miles from Whatton House, is usually open to the public at least once a year under the National Gardens Scheme. See www.ngs.org.uk for further details and images. This year, it will be open on Sunday 18 August from 12 noon to 5 pm. Admission is £3 per person. Accompanied children free. For a small additional charge to the NGS, tea and biscuits can be provided.

The garden will also be open by arrangement in 2019. Groups of between 4 and 10 are welcome on a mutually convenient date. It is possible to accommodate larger groups but please contact me at the nursery to discuss. Plants from the nursery will be available for sale and a percentage of any takings donated to the National Gardens Scheme for the charities the Scheme supports, which include the following:

  • The Queen’s Nursing Institute
  • Macmillan Cancer Support
  • Marie Curie
  • Hospice UK
  • Carers Trust
  • MS Society
  • Parkinson’s UK
  • Perennial
  • Leonard Cheshire
  • Horatio’s Garden
  • Maggies

The 15 acres of family gardens at Whatton House, where the nursery is based, are also open annually for the National Gardens Scheme, this year on Sunday 19 May from 11.00am to 5.00pm. Admission £4.00, accompanied children free. The nursery will be open and plants will be for sale, again with a percentage donated to the NGS. See the Whatton Gardens website - www.whattonhouseandgardens.co.uk - for images and details of regular openings.
