25 May – 2 June

UK: National Children’s Gardening Week returns in 2019

National Children’s Gardening Week (NCGW) is to promote gardening to the general public and to encourage garden centres across the UK to hold events throughout the week of Saturday 25 May-Sunday 2 June 2019. The HTA uses the National Garden Gift Voucher (NGGV) scheme to promote and operate the week. This year 300 garden centres took part.

The aim of NCGW is to get as many schools, children and their families involved, gardening and having fun in their gardens. 2018 was the first year that the HTA took the project on. The campaign put gardening project ideas in front of half a million of consumers through the website, social media and in-store.

Chris Collins once again will be the celebrity ambassador for 2019.

NCGW, like the NGGV scheme, supports the Greenfingers Charity. Greenfingers builds magical gardens for children in hospices, for them and their families to relax and benefit from.

There will be an information pack available to the HTA members with more information about NCGW 2019 and how to get involved, it will be delivered to the HTA members later this year.
