Our guide attracts visitors from all over the world - we know because we often receive feedback. We started the guide as a hobby in 2002, as at that time there were few resources on the internet to help people plan their visits. The first region we covered was Cornwall and by the time 12 months elapsed more than 200 gardens had applied to join. Over the last 10 years we estimate that we have had around 3 million viewers from almost every continent on the world, with 5 million page views. As a result we have generated significant income for our members. With over 500 properties on our guide and more applying to join we should maintain our place as a leading resource for garden lovers.

If you would like us to plan your itinerary for you we have a wide range of guided holidays in England, Scotland and Wales all at very reasonable prices. We also have a range of tours throughout the world so why not request one of our free brochures. It does not matter where you live as there are departure points throughout the UK.
