Edingale Open Gardens 2020

Every two years, the lovely village of Edingale delights villagers with its Open Gardens festival. For 2020, the festival was to be combined with a scarecrow and music event, all to raise funds for good causes in and around the village. The Covid 19 pandemic meant that the open gardens festival was one of many that had to be put on hold. At the same time, the long sunny period we experienced in the spring this year combined with the lockdown meant that gardeners had more time than ever to invest their creative talents. The event organisers therefore decided not to let this go to waste and the weekend of the 20th and 21st June was celebrated virtually with almost 200 photos posted to the open gardens Facebook page.
