Nymans is opening its doors as part of the National Garden Scheme.

Described as a ‘garden lovers’ home for all seasons’, the national trust property will be joining in the charitable country-wide open-garden project on Sunday September 23.

Typically the National Garden Scheme consists of amateur gardeners opening their lovingly tended back gardens to raise money for good causes, however this National trust treasure is keen to get involved and support the cause.

George Plumptre, chief executive of the National Garden Scheme, said: “Visiting a National Garden Scheme garden is probably not the first thing people think of when they’re looking to de-stress.

“But spending an hour or two wandering around a truly beautiful garden that has been lovingly cultivated by its owners, and enjoying a slice of homemade cake and a cup of tea, is incredibly restorative.”

The National Garden Scheme gave £296,000 of the total £3.1 million charitable donations in 2018 to gardens and health-related projects.

High Beeches Woodland and Water Garden in Hayward’s Heath will also be taking part on September 23.

Visitors will be able to amble around 25 acres of landscaped woodland and water gardens before enjoying a picnic.
