Charlbury Garden Society

Virtual Open Gardens

In 2020, Open Gardens was hosted online on our new website. People sent us videos of their beautiful gardens, as well as some great photos. We were also lucky enough to have professional photographer, Edmund Blok, photograph several of the gardens for you to enjoy in full bloom. Click on the pictures on this page to take your tour.
