Virtual Garden Fest 2020 – part 2!

Back in May (which feels like forever ago!) I hosted a virtual open gardens over on Instagram and it was so much fun we’re doing it again this weekend.

I love my garden and really enjoy visiting other gardens – particularly ‘real’ gardens that haven’t been set up and tended by experts. This inspired me to set up the Virtual Garden Fest so that we could all share our gardens and visit each others virtually during lockdown and beyond.


The first garden fest was a mixture of small and large gardens, messy (mine) and cultivated gardens and we even had a house plant tour from the lovely Georgia Farrell. They were all beautiful! So you don’t even need to have a garden to join in and you certainly don’t need to be an expert… we just want to see your green babies!

I have shared a new video tour of my back garden over on IGTV and will be doing a live tour of the front garden (veg patch) this morning. I will upload that to IGTV as well so don’t worry if you miss the live. 

You can join in by doing a live tour or sharing a video or pictures of your garden/plants over on Instagram using #virtualgardenfest2020. And make sure you’re following the hashtag so you can have a look around everyone’s gardens!


Virtual Garden Fest 2020

One of the things I’m missing during lockdown is looking around other people’s gardens! I love visiting National Trust places with walled gardens and neat veg patches… but mostly I love looking around ‘real’ gardens and picking up tips and tricks.

So this weekend over on Instagram I’m hosting a virtual open gardens! Yesterday I did a live tour of my front garden/veg patch which will be available until 3pm today – and this afternoon I will be doing a live tour of my back garden.

Everyone is welcome to join in! Whether you have an allotment, a messy small garden (like me), a few pots on a patio or a house plant that brings you a lot of joy… I’d love to hear about it. Just share pictures on your grid and/or in your stories using the hashtag #virtualgardenfest2020. And if you’re doing an Instagram live tour – make sure you let us know on your grid/in your stories so that anyone following the hashtag can find you!

And if you just want to follow along and have a virtual mooch around our gardens – hop over to #virtualgardenfest2020 and give us some love!

Happy gardening x
