What a pleasure then to see it featured on last week’s Gardeners’ World on BBC2. You get a much better impression of the delights […]

Over 3700 gardens are open for charity this year under the auspices the National Garden Scheme, including about 150 in North Yorkshire, so you might think it wouldn’t be too hard to find one to visit some sunny weekend (they do happen!). But North Yorkshire is a big area, and some of those 150 are […]
Summer is upon us, and the opening of gardens for charity under the National Garden Scheme is in full swing. There is only one such garden in Kirkbymoorside: Penny Piece Cottage at 41/43 Piercy End. The ‘yellow book’ says: Hidden away off the main street in Kirkbymoorside is a romantic cottage garden. Now fully matured […]
The garden visiting season is gradually coming to an end, but there are still discoveries to be made. New to the list this year is Barnville, just four miles east of Pickering, open to the public under the National Garden Scheme. Over an acre of hidden gardens on the edge of the North York Moors, […]
Last year, Penny Piece Cottages in Piercy End became the first garden in Kirkbymoorside (as far as we know) to open to the public under the National Garden Scheme which raises money for charity. What a great day it was, with literally hundreds of people coming to admire this magnificent garden, as well as enjoy […]

Barnville has over an acre of hidden gardens on the edge of the North York Moors. Unusual plants make […]
Well done Mick and Ann Potter, whose garden at Penny Piece Cottage, 41/43 Piercy End, was open today under the National Garden Scheme. The sun didn’t shine, alas, but that didn’t stop folk turning out in force to admire this Tardis of a garden: when we left at about 4 o’clock, over 200 people had […]
Among the hundreds of gardens that will open for charity this year under the National Gardens Scheme, there’s a new entry that is a real must-see for us here in Kirkbymoorside – because the garden is here in Kirkbymoorside. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first garden in the town to open […]
Some days at least have been sunny of late, and the garden visiting season is in full swing. Rewela Cottage in Skewsby, open to visitors on Sunday July 20 under the National Garden Scheme, sounds well worth a visit. Feedback from previous openings includes such comments as “Extraordinary and humbling, well worth the journey”; “An […]
New this year to the long list of gardens open for charity under the National Garden Scheme is Basin Howe Farm in Sawdon (en route to Scarborough). Overlooking the Wolds on a limestone ridge this site has a bronze age burial mound. The gardens have a lovely atmosphere. They cover 3 acres, with box parterre […]
The Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard is open from March to November, but if you’ve never visited it, there is now an added incentive, because the Arboretum is open, for the first time, under the National Garden Scheme, on Saturday June 7. The National Garden Scheme organises the opening of gardens, both private and public, […]
The guide to Yorkshire gardens open for charity under the National Garden Scheme this year can be picked up, free, from Daisy Garden Centre.
