Welcome to Open Gardens

Is your garden home to wildlife?  A place for pollinators to visit? Would you open your garden to raise funds for Butterfly Conservation? 

Calling gardens large or small, school gardens or village walkabouts, community gardens or woodland walks, allotment or arboretum. If you love your garden and have created a home for wildlife, then we would be delighted if you would open your garden and inspire others to create their own wildlife gardens.

Fundraise for us.

Your garden may sparkle in the Spring or shimmer in the Summer, whatever the season invite friends, neighbours and family to enjoy the wildlife in your garden, maybe with a cup of tea and piece of cake too, and help raise funds for Butterfly Conservation. Your wildlife garden could inspire someone else to make a small change in their garden which makes a big difference for butterflies and moths. 

More than two-thirds of our native butterflies have suffered declines since the 1970’s with many species vanishing altogether from areas where habitat has been destroyed. We can all help to protect butterflies and moths by creating insect-friendly gardens at home and by visiting our Open Gardens you will also be raising vital funds for Butterfly Conservation.

Our gardens have become enormously important for nature conservation and it's easy to see why. Green space is becoming ever more scarce and disjointed but our gardens are beacons of hope for all wildlife and it’s very simple to attract visitors your garden with just a few nectar rich plants and some habitat for building a home.

Everyone can play a part from parks and gardens large and small to community spaces and window boxes. Gardens are hugely beneficial to wildlife.

The last year have highlighted to us all how important it is to spend time outdoors and explore the nature on our doorsteps. Gardening provides an opportunity to keep fit as well as stimulating our minds and allowing us to revel in colour, aroma and beauty.Gardens provide a quiet, calm space for relaxation and reflection from what, at times, can be a chaotic and challenging world.  Our gardens and plants help us to support the environment, reduce particulate pollution and also reduce extreme temperatures.
