In My Garden: A Visual Diary 2021

Throughout 2020, we shared stories and behind-the-scenes glimpses into some of the fabulous gardens in our Open Days and Preservation communities through a weekly email series, In My Garden: A Virtual Diary. The series was designed to keep us all connected through a period during which in-person garden visiting was not possible. As we return to in-person garden visiting, we’re thrilled to also bring back In My Garden in 2021! 

Click on the names below to read each person's In My Garden visual diary to see what's happening in their gardens. Over time, these behind-the-scene snapshots also chronicle the progress on garden projects, as well as the unfolding of the seasons in different parts of the country.

In My Garden: A Visual Diary, a regular series of emails for Garden Conservancy members, began in the spring of 2020 as the world faced the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing. It features behind-the-scenes snapshots of a diverse group of gardeners across America.

We love the photos our readers have been sharing with us!
