Gardens Open to the Public

Some of our members are happy to welcome you to their gardens, either to raise funds for charity or commercially. This is a good way to visit gardens which may not be generally open and which show how hardy perennials can be used. Those opening their gardens are often happy to talk to fellow-gardeners so you may be able to exchange or gain ideas and information on your visit.

At most of the gardens there are plants for sale, usually grown by the owner, so you can get advice on what will suit your garden conditions.

If you are a member who opens your garden to the public and would like to advertise on the HPS website, you can find how to do it here.

National Gardens Scheme

The major organisation devoted to opening gardens for charity in the UK is the National Gardens Scheme. You can find out where there are gardens open to the public, or download their app for your mobile phone, by visiting their website.

At least two of our members have produced video tours of their gardens in place of not being able to open to the public in 2020.

Barbara Molesworth normally opens her garden in aid of Save the Children, but of course this year that has been impossible.  A virtual version of her open garden tour is available, featuring many of the heritage plants that she raises and grows.

Andrew and Janet Rowe have also produced a video tour of their garden at Hedgehog Hall in Leicestershire which normally opens twice a year under the National Garden Scheme
