Interested in gardens? The National Gardens Scheme Yellow Book is a MUST. The scheme encourages people to open their gardens for charity. Gardens are generally of high standard, so you are not viewing someone else's weeds, although this happens occasionaly! Gardens vary from tiny courtyards to vast, landscaped acres. Often groups of gardens open together. Detailed by county, reference is simple with numbered maps, brief descriptions, location, contacts, dates, and entry cost. Most are lovingly created, private gardens full of ideas and inspiration. Many offer refreshments. An outstanding and invaluable guide, available from February each year.
