All you have to do is take up to five pictures of your garden and send them to us. Then add a description of your garden. You could tell us about the work you've done, your favourite plant, what your garden means to you - whatever you want. If your garden isn't perfect, it doesn't matter – just snap the good bits! And if you feel like giving us a guided tour, create a video for our Virtual Open Gardens YouTube channel.
Children can get involved too with the Dandy the Lion colouring sheet. Just download a copy, colour it in, take a picture of it, send it back to us and we'll add it to the site. You can download a copy by clicking here.
Open Gardens 2020 was due to take place over the weekend of June 27 & 28 - and that's when we'll be unveiling the entries to our virtual event. Entry is free, but we'd really appreciate a donation for the Hospice. Like many charities, St Helena's fundraising has been hit hard because of the virus – and many Brightlingsea residents have had cause to be grateful for the caring work that the Hospice does.
Entries close on Thursday, June 25 and Virtual Open Gardens will open at 10 am on June 27. So what are you waiting for? Get snapping!
