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? Even the village next door proved hard - until posters started to appear, or notes in the local newspaper, event dates were unknown - all very uncertain.
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.
