A haven of houseplants - Virtual Open Garden - NGS
Mercy Morris, is the first ‘garden’ owner for the National Garden Scheme to open for houseplants alone. At her home in Herne Bay, Kent, Mercy has around 150 houseplants from tiny air plants to philodendrons and monsteras along with a range of cacti, succulents, tillandsia, tropical and half-hardy plants. Many are suitable to grow in any home. “Plants engage us all at a very basic level, tapping into our need to nurture and care for other living things,” says Mercy. “For many, they become as precious as their pets and for those without gardens provide the opportunity to watch and grow and look forward to what unfurls next.”
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.
