We are a group of gardening enthusiasts who would much rather be in the garden than at the keyboard.
We know the effort required to organise an Open Gardens event - we were involved in organising our own village's event for many years, and also opened our own garden - fun, enjoyable, but time consuming and tiring.
Every year we faced the same problem - how do you find out the dates of Open Garden events in your area and so avoid a clash with your own event?
Solving the problem
So how do you solve the problem - well, you're looking at the solution right now. A website aimed specifically at the smaller organisers, those volunteers who bring together gardeners and gardens, plant enthusiasts and hobbyists, Hosta lovers and Pelargonium fanciers - the melting pot of Middle England that is Open Gardens.
Keeping it simple
This website should be a valuable tool to help your efforts both in publicising your own event and finding out about other events near to you or indeed elsewhere in the country.
We've tried to design the site to be simple to use, and simple to update. We love plants, not websites, so the less time people spend in front of the screen where you are now, the better.
