During a time of lockdown where gardens and businesses alike were forced to shut-up, Discover Scottish Gardens did not shut down. Instead the organisation offered its members across Scotland the chance to join the very first Scottish Summer Garden Festival - virtually.
This virtual festival promoted Scottish gardens during the height of the season to ensure visitors both locally and internationally could enjoy gardens, encouraging future visits. Over 50 events invited families and gardeners of all levels to virtual garden tours, tutorials and even a garden-inspired cocktail class. It was a successful and fulfilling experience for viewers and organisers.
