Every year the new National Gardens Scheme handbook, the bible for garden visitors, and what used to be called The Yellow Book, comes out in early spring, and Country Gardener readers can take advantage of a bargain.
The handbook lists all the gardens open for the NGS throughout the British Isles and is indispensable for garden visiting, containing all the information you need for a great day out. There are many new gardens opening all over the country, old favourites, and many open several times a year.
The National Gardens Scheme was launched in 1927 and is an important source of income for several nursing and caring charities including Macmillan, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, Carers Trust and the Queen’s Nursing Institute. In 2017 the NGS donated a record £3 million to the charities.
If you apply to the NGS giving a special discount code you will receive a reduction of £3 off the retail price.
The discount code for 2018 is cg18 which will bring the price of the handbook down to £9.99 (including postage and packing) when it is bought from the NGS website: www.ngs.org.uk/product/pre-order-the-garden-visitors-handbook-2018/
