Scotland´s Gardens Scheme

SGS, a registered charity since 1931, organises the opening of hundreds of gardens, ranging from formal castle gardens to small cottage gardens, to raise money for charity. 60% of entry fees to gardens in this scheme benefit SGS´s charities: The Queen´s Nursing Institute Scotland, Gardens Fund of the National Trust for Scotland, Maggie´s Cancer Caring Centres and Perennial. 40% of entry fees goes to a charitable cause chosen by the garden owner. For more information, see the book "Scotland´s Gardens: Our Guide for 2014" or the website www.scotlandsgardens.org
