Harpole Gardens

We welcome everyone to join in the Harpole Gardens experience. Visit us and you will delight in varied gardens of all shapes, sizes and content. Harpole is an attractive village which is renowned for its annual Scarecrow Festival (2nd weekend of Sept), well worth a visit! Amongst our various garden structures, you will find a summerhouse, a treehouse, a vine-covered pergola and plenty of seating for the weary. We have herbaceous borders, luxuriant lawns, water features, including several ponds. You will see mixed borders with plants for both shade and sun, mature trees, herbs, vegetables and alpines. You will be able to enjoy views over neighbouring farmland and perhaps best of all delicious home-made teas!

Who we are and what we do

The National Garden Scheme is the most significant charitable funder of nursing charities in the country, donating over £50 million so far. We help our garden owners open their beautiful gardens to the public, sharing their passion and raising impressive amounts of money through entry fees, teas and slices of cake.

Our beneficiary charities are The Queen’s Nursing Institute, Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Carers Trust, Hospice UK, Perennial, Parkinson’s UK and other guest charities.

What we do

Around  3,700 gardens open each year for the National Garden Scheme, all of our gardens can be found on our website or in our Garden Visitor’s Handbook, published annually. Click here to search our gardens.
