The Open Gardens National Directory


Open Gardens Directory Takes Root

A national directory of Open Gardens launched just 18 months ago has already grown to include over 500 town and village open garden events.

Simple to use and with a clever search facility, and free from the curse of complex and intrusive advertising, the site allows people to find out about Open Gardens just down the road or indeed across the country.

The Open Gardens National DirectoryThis website supports the smaller event organisers who don't have a voice - 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.

For the humble town or village Open Gardens organiser, the site offers a real opportunity to get much needed publicity. For the garden visitor, it offers a simple way to find out about Open Garden events in your area.

Open Gardens is all about horticultural espionage. It's about ideas, planting schemes, sneaky solutions to difficult garden problems. It's about taking a peep at the garden of that house you've always admired. It's about tea and cake in the gentle heat of an English spring or summer. At times, it's also about rain of course.
