At Country Gardener we are always glad to help publicise garden openings for charity in the areas we cover. Some are gardens opening for the local hospice or church, for community amenities, or for the area’s wildlife trust.

Many of them open for the National Gardens Scheme, the charity that raises funds for nursing and caring charities – and has raised the amazing sum of £45 million for the charities they support since its inception in 1927.

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds has been encourages people to ‘Give Nature a Home’ this summer by allowing gardens to grow.

Earlier this year RSPB received a number of reports from concerned people about plants being cut back.
With July and August being predicted for sunny spells, it’s not unusual to hear or see people enthusiastically trimming back garden foliage, often using speedy electric tools that give vulnerable wildlife no chance of escape.
