The Gwent gardens taking part in the National Garden Scheme have revealed their spring opening dates.

The gardens have emerged as the UK’s top choice under the scheme offering an idyllic sneak peek into the country's top private gardens.

Several new gardens are set to make their debut on the National Garden Scheme, established as the UK's most cherished charitable open garden system.

The scheme unveils the best of private gardens giving every participant a diverse learning experience.

Visitors can learn about garden design and planting schemes, try their hands at growing fruit and vegetables, and understand composting techniques.

Additionally, visitors get a chance to interact with the owners, complemented by a perfect outing adorned with a cup of tea and cake.

Most of these gardens offer free entry for children, making it a fun-filled day for families.

The National Garden Scheme in 2023 was successful in raising more than £3.4 million for the UK’s beloved nursing and health charities, through admissions, and sale of tea and cake.

The much-awaited dates and details for the gardens have been released for 2024.
