Join us in your Garden on Sunday 10 May 2020

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

So what must you do on Garden Day?

Celebrate your garden! How?

Once you’ve prepared your garden, invite your family, friends, and neighbours to join you in a virtual Garden Day celebration through live streaming, a video call or by posting across social media.

Ways To Celebrate

There are lots of different ways to celebrate your garden on Garden Day – and what you do is completely up to you. Here are a few of our
favorite ideas…

  • Invite neighbours and friends to a virtual celebration - ask everyone to prepare their tipple of choice whether it's a refreshing glass of Pimms or a warming cup of tea (weather depending!) so you can toast the day together.
  • Head outside 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 race… 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 or stay indoors and have a house plant party.
