A gift membership to the National Trust could be a great gift idea for garden lovers

Posted on

Visiting gardens is a great way to unwind and enjoy the natural world. You can stroll through beautiful places, created and worked on by someone else, and be inspired by what they have done.    

I love visiting gardens - they just make me want to go home, put the gardening gloves on (and the kettle) and get out there and start trying to do something with my own patch.

Best places to see spring gardens

The National Trust has over 200 beautiful gardens, all carefully and tenderly cared for. 

From flower gardens to ancient woodland (and there are 25,000 hectares of this), there's lots to explore, to stroll in, to breathe in...

There's plenty to see and enjoy, whatever time of the year you visit.  I love seeing the same garden at different times of the year - you can see different colours, scents, lights and sounds. 

There's always an inner excitement for me about what I'll see in a garden - what will be new?
