NGS - Gardens Open for Charity

Gardens open for charity this month

Every year NGS gardens across England and Wales welcome about 750,000 visitors. Most gardens which open for the NGS are privately owned and open just a few times each year. Some gardens open as part of a group with the whole community involved. The gardens give all the money raised directly to us (including from the sale of teas and plants); the only exceptions being in some cases they ask that a small proportion goes to a nominated local charity.

For details of gardens open in Cornwall go www.ngs.org.uk and select Cornwall
