The National Garden Scheme celebrates 300 years of 'Capability' Brown

The National Gardens Scheme (NGS) joins 20 other Capability Brown Festival partners to celebrate the life and work of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. The NGS is delighted to play a part in celebrating the best known landscape gardener in English history who completely changed the landscape across England and Wales. The aim of the NGS is twofold: to provide funds for nursing and caring and secondly, to help The Capability Brown Festival together with the network of other partners.

The NGS Capability Brown garden openings tell a story of this man's extraordinary life and work, from his early days growing in Kirkharle, Northunberland, to his final years spent in Fenstanton, Cambridgeshire. 20 Lancelot 'Capability' Brown designed gardens have been opening for the NGS across the country, a few of which are exclusively opening for the NGS and are not usually accessible to the public.

The 300th anniversary celebrations include events, arts and craft fairs, home made teas and much more for friends and families to enjoy. NGS Capability open gardens provide the perfect way to spend an affordable day of afternoon out and funds raised will go towards their beneficiary charities.
