Welsh Lavender, near Builth Wells, with fields of blue, will be open from Friday to Sunday, July 17 until 19 and further weekends to mid-August.

The National Garden Scheme’s work helps support our nurses.

Liz Alderton, Queen’s Nurse said: "I love the National Garden Scheme which has been the most brilliant supporter of Queen’s Nurses like me. It was founded by the Queen’s Nursing Institute which makes me very proud. As we battle Coronavirus on the front line in the community, knowing we have their support is a real comfort."
