Open Your Garden

When you open your garden with Scotland’s Gardens Scheme you join a long tradition of helping your community through both charitable funding and the pleasure of visiting beautiful gardens. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to meet many people who share your passion form gardening. We’re looking for all types of gardens of horticultural interest: large and small gardens, allotments, villages, kitchen gardens, snowdrops, autumn colours, winter walks, and so on.
