The first gardens opened under the scheme last weekend, for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown began.

Gardens are now opening their gates on a ticketed basis, with visitors needing to book a slot via the NGS website and pay electronically.

They will then be given an e-ticket enabling them to visit the garden of their choice. At present, the garden owners can’t serve tea and cakes as usual, but visitors will still be able to walk round and view the gardens.
