Our planned biennial Open Gardens Event had to be cancelled this year, much to the disappointment of gardeners, villagers and visitors. Not to be thwarted by Covid 19, however, we decided that we could go ahead albeit in virtual form.
Over the last few weeks, our gardeners have taken to photography and put pen to paper to compile a set of 12 garden booklets, showing off their flowers and plants, potting sheds and greenhouses, small and large. This year, therefore, each garden can be viewed from the comfort of your own home and at the same time, raise funds for our village church and school and the British Red Cross via the JustGiving platform.

Datchworth Open Gardens started as part of the village’s millennium celebrations and has been held every two years since. Over 1000 visitors came in 2018, choosing a leisurely walk or courtesy bus ride around our lovely village, enjoying lunches, afternoon tea and live music as well as the delights of undiscovered gardens and old favourites including our 800 year old church. We raised over £10,000 for local charities and the British Red Cross.
We hope you enjoy visiting Datchworth Gardens this year and if able, make a small contribution to supporting our good causes by clicking here.
