Every year NGS gardens across England and Wales open their gardens to the public to raise money. Most of the 3,600 gardens are privately owned. We just thought we would let you know which ones are closest to us here at Flamborough Rigg Cottage and when they will be open.
This wonderful scheme raises £2 million each year for nursing, caring and gardening charities. Since 1927 they have raised over £45 million (£25 million in the last 10 years).
