Sometimes, depending on your dates, I can arrange a visit to a private garden not normally open to the public.  In the UK we have the National Garden Scheme (the ‘NGS’ or ‘Yellow-book’  scheme)  where people open their gardens in order to raise funds for charity – a wonderful way to visit private gardens, chat to the owners and,at the same time, contribute to charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Cure  – www.ngs.org.uk   These gardens are included in the scheme for their horticultural interest.  Please let me know if this might interest you and I will try to include this in your itinerary, dates permitting.
