About Scotland's Gardens

Scotland's Gardens continues to facilitate the opening of gardens throughout Scotland with private gardens, not usually open to the public, still of paramount importance.

Although many glorious country house gardens continue to participate in the programme, these are now joined by town and village gardens which have proved very popular amongst our visitors. Small gardens are encouraged to open as groups and often villages open with up to twenty five gardens.

What remains of fundamental importance is that each garden must have some horticultural interest and be of a certain standard.

In addition to the traditional, indeed renowned, home made teas that are available at the garden openings, plant and produce stalls, musical entertainment, quizzes/games for children and many other activities are frequently on hand.

Some 200 charities, both large and small, benefit annually from the 40% gross of the takings that are donated to the charities chosen by the garden owners whilst 60% net continues to be given to Scotland's Gardens' beneficiaries.

In 2008 Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres was appointed as a third major beneficiary. The Queen's Nursing Institute Scotland continues to support community and primary care nursing whilst The Gardens Fund of the National Trust for Scotland undertakes vital projects in order to maintain their collection of important gardens. The smaller beneficiary, Perennial plays a major role in helping horticultural workers and their families who have fallen on bad times.

From time to time we may have to cancel garden openings due to unforeseen circumstances.
