ABOUT

Most of the year we plant, water, weed and mulch – work. Garden Day, however, is the time to reap the rewards of your labor. No matter how big or small your garden is – whether you have rolling lawns or simple window box displays – Garden Day is all about downing tools and celebrating the fruits of your labor.

Join us in your garden on Sunday 9 May 2021.

Ways To Celebrate

There are lots of different ways to celebrate your garden this Garden Day. What you do is completely up to you, but here are a few of our favourite ideas…

  • Host a virtual celebration with friends and family. Ask your guests to prepare their tipple of choice, whether it's a refreshing glass of Pimm's or a cuppa tea, so you can toast the day together.
  • Head into your garden for a picnic lunch or barbecue.
  • Enjoy dinner under the stars.
  • Play classic outdoor games like boules, ring toss, skittles, human wheelbarrow race or egg and spoon races… the opportunities are endless.
  • Draw, paint or write poems inspired by your garden.
  • Bad weather? Take the kids on a nature hunt for snails, worms and other rain-loving garden creatures...you'll be amazed at what you can find in your own backyard. Or just stay indoors and have a houseplant party.
