5.0 out of 5 stars The Yellow Book 2010
Interested in gardens? The National Gardens Scheme Yellow Book is a MUST. The scheme encourages people to open their gardens for charity.

1.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed
Yes it's full of lovely gardens to visit, but only in England and Wales! I live in Scotland and we have lots of lovely gardens too! I think the fact it's called The NATIONAL GARDENS SCHEME, is very misleading! The title should say England and Wales only!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Yellow Book 2010, 8 Mar 2010
This review is from: The Yellow Book 2010: NGS Gardens Open for Charity (National Gardens Scheme) (Paperback)
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.

This review is from: The Yellow Book 2010: NGS Gardens Open for Charity (National Gardens Scheme) (Paperback)
This book is the perfect companion for Spring and Summer garden visitors and enthusiests. Very well detailed
information,good travel directions and excellent selection of gardens. The book is split into counties,which
makes reference very simple,especially when touring around the countryside.It also lists facilities that are
avaliable at each venue,e.g.toilets,cafe,plant sales etc.At the beginning of each county is a calendar which
states which gardens are open on certain dates. A relly useful purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Format NGS yelloe book, 28 Feb 2010

This review is from: The Yellow Book 2010: NGS Gardens Open for Charity (National Gardens Scheme) (Paperback)
The new format is more expensive to buy but contains the excellent information it always has done. There is nothing better on a summer weekend than visiting one of the superb gardens, created and maintained by their owners. I have been using it for more than 30 years and still find somewhere new and interesting to go every year.

5.0 out of 5 stars an annual purchase, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Yellow Book 2010: NGS Gardens Open for Charity (National Gardens Scheme) (Paperback)
It enables you to see some beautiful gardens on your doorstep, for not much money and knowing that what you do spend is going to charity. You could alternatively plan a drive out to somewhere further afield for lunch, say, and a garden visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Planning Garden visits on Kindle, 21 Jun 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful to have the Yellow Book 'with you' while traveling around. You never know when you may have a spare afternoon and want to know if there is a garden to visit in the area. All those on holiday with their kindle will find it a handy reference. Not only for the gardens, but probably the cheapest teas and most delicious home made cakes in England and Wales. Sorry about Scotland. They do have a Scottish Yellow Book.

If you like gardens - but not nessesarily gardening, this is a great way to enjoy others hard work! All proceeds go to charity, a peep inside others gardens from cottage to mansion. Often teas too, makes a great day out. Also can check other areas of country if travelling.
