The National Gardens Scheme was founded by the Queen's Nursing Institute in 1927.

The NGS organises the opening of outstanding gardens to visitors in order to raise funds for charity. The particular area of charitable funding has always been nursing and caring.

Funds are raised annually by visitors paying to attend open gardens and to enjoy home-made teas or buying plants.

In the great majority of cases the owners of gardens donate the total amounts raised at their open days, only very occasionally are minimal expenses deducted. Their generosity is responsible for the millions of pounds that the charity is able to donate every year.

The following links will take you to a gallery of pictures of the gardens of Lois Weedon and Weston that are regularly open to visitors.
