Welcome to UGS pages.

The Ulster Gardens Scheme raises funds for special projects in National Trust gardens within Northern Ireland through the opening of privately owned gardens to the public in a series of open days or visits arranged by appointment.

The scheme gives all of its earnings to be used for special jobs in National Trust gardens in Northern Ireland.

Join members of the Ulster Gardens Scheme Committee and garden owners for our very popular annual review, when we look back at another successful season’s garden visiting on behalf of the National Trust, and enjoy a light supper.

An admission charge of £5.00 (including supper) per person will be made, to avoid a drain on National Trust funds.

Pre-booking is essential, as numbers are strictly limited.
